Lemon Pan'Agrumato Panettone
Italian Panettone-Style Cake made with Lemon Olive Oil
This holiday season, take home holiday tradition with a twist—a citrus twist that is. In a delectable melding of fresh ingredients and time-honored methods, Lemon Pan'Agrumato—from the award-winning producers of Agrumato citrus olive oils—is made in the style of classic Italian panettone, but with their aromatic Lemon Agrumato Olive Oil instead of butter. Plump raisins and Sicilian candied lemon peel cubes add extra festive flair.
The addition of the Lemon Agrumato citrus olive oil gives this traditional Christmas cake a rich, fragrant lemon aroma and bright, full-bodied citrus flavor that enchants bite after bite. Serve after dinner with a simple dollop of lightly sweetened mascarpone or crème fraîche. Or use Lemon Pan'Agrumato in lieu of bread in a sumptuous panettone-style bread pudding.
About Agrumato citrus olive oils
In Lanciano, on the Adriatic Coast of Abruzzo, Agrumato citrus olive oils from Esperidia ("agrume" meaning citrus in Italian) are traditionally made at the end of the olive harvest.
Fresh, whole citrus like lemons, tangerines and citron are cold-pressed with the olives (no artificial flavorings or "natural" here!)—infusing the fruit's essential oils—for a zesty, vivacious condiment that captures the true essence of peak-season citrus. This simultaneous pressing bestows an entirely different taste experience from that of olive oils with essence added prior to bottling.
