Augusta Panettoni was founded in 1945 in Milan by a master pastry chef using the traditional “Panettone Milano” recipe. Today, as then, the master bakers at Augusta maintain the secret recipe of their special leavening agent, which is mixed only with European butter, vibrant candied fruits, the best quality raisins and other ingredients – all of which define this delicious classic panettone. The dough is left to rise naturally and is then baked slowly and carefully. Next, it cools upside down for a full 12 hours, giving the cake it’s unique fluffiness and delicious flavor! Comes in a variety of beautiful packaging; hand wrapped, tins, hat boxes and pastry boxes!
