Classic Italian Panettone - Easy Step-by-Step Recipe

Make your holidays extra special - the Italian way! - with this soft and flavorful, classic Italian panettone

Here is the recipe for the most beloved, soft, and airy Italian Panettone.

I am sure you've all tried panettone before. It is THE Italian classic, traditional, and a must-have Christmas dessert. 
It's more of a sweet bread than a dessert/cake, but you can serve it at any time of the day. 
In Italy, you would enjoy a slice of panettone in the morning next to (or dunk into if you're anything like me!!) a steamy hot cappuccino. OR after dinner with a glass of Moscato or Prosecco.
