Orange Pan'Agrumato Panettone
Italian Panettone-Style Cake made with Orange 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, Orange Pan'Agrumato—from the award-winning producers of Agrumato citrus olive oils—is made in the style of classic Italian panettone, but with their fragrant Orange Agrumato Olive Oil instead of butter.
The Orange citrus olive oil gives this traditional Christmas cake a warm, deep orange aroma and flavor that pairs beautifully with the addition of plump raisins and Sicilian candied orange peel cubes. Serve after dinner with a simple dollop of lightly sweetened mascarpone and bittersweet chocolate shavings. Or spread thick slices of Orange Pan'Agrumato with unsalted butter, sprinkle with caster sugar and broil until the sugar is golden and caramelized (for an extra indulgent treat: top with vanilla gelato).
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, oranges and citron are cold-pressed with the olives (no artificial flavorings 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.
