Pandoro is a traditional Christmas cake from the Verona area, made from a rich, leavened dough of wheat flour, butter, eggs, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla.
Along with Panettone, Pandoro has become a staple at the Christmas table throughout Italy, and is particularly loved by children for its soft texture and melt-in-the-mouth quality.
Customarily presented with just a dusting of icing sugar to create the look of a snowy mountain, Pandoro makes an impressive centrepiece to any Christmas dining table.
It is usually given as a Christmas gift, and the hand-made, beautifully hand-wrapped Perbellini Pandoro is certain to delight and impress anyone lucky enough to receive one.
Unsurprisingly, given that the Perbellini family were amongst the very first bakeries to produce it in the 1890s, the Perbellini Pandoro is one of the very best in Italy.
