Pandoro (pan d'oro) is a light, fluffy yeasted sweet bread and traditional Christmas and New Year’s Eve dessert in Italy. This “golden bread” has been served in Venetian palaces since the 17th Century and is enjoyed at the end of the meal with sparkling wine. Italians are divided between those who love panettone and those who prefer pandoro (because it does not contain any candied fruit or raisins). Thankfully, Pasticceria Filippi pleases everyone with their artisan creations!
Pasticceria Filippi's Pandoro is a simple dessert made from the highest quality ingredients handled with great care: their 40+ year-old mother yeast, selected flours, fresh butter, whole milk delivered daily, and more. The rich, buttery brioche cake has a striking golden yellow color, reflecting the quality of the free-range eggs that Filippi uses. Its soft, cloudlike crumb is scented with whole Bourbon vanilla beans.
Pandoro is beloved for its unique shape, which follows the lines of a star. It looks especially like a Christmas tree when topped with a snowy flurry of powdered sugar! For an extra indulgence, serve topped with a warm custard or cut a hole in the bottom, remove part of the interior and fill with vanilla gelato or Chantilly crème.
