Continuing my Arden & Amici Week of reviews are these gorgeous Classic Panettone. They come in three different sizes 750g, 500g or the mini panettone which is 100g, so you can choose between a sharing size or just keeping it all to yourself! As Arden & Amici very kindly sent me all four of their panettones (Classic, Chocolate Chip, Cranberry & Orange and Drunken) I was spoilt for choice with which one to review first. I decided to start with the Classic Panettone and then move onto the other combinations.
Just like yesterday's Arden & Amici Panforte the Classic Panettone comes beautifully wrapped. The largest size comes in a burgundy and gold packaging whilst the other sizes have creamy white and gold wrappings. They all look fabulous as festive presents, but unlike Christmas pudding deserve to be eaten well before Christmas Day!
|Mini Classic Panettone|
Once cut open, it had a gorgeously golden colour with a soft texture that was light and fluffy. The taste was rich and buttery, very reminiscent of brioche without being greasy or heavy. There was just the perfect amount, and distribution, of raisins, which were all moist and plump. I absolutely loved this panettone and will definitely be buying it in the future.
If you have any leftovers of the Arden & Amici Classic Panettone (which I highly doubt) then it's also delicious toasted with butter or can be used to make a rich bread and butter pudding. It's a wonderfully versatile product.
The Arden & Amici Panettone range is available in Waitrose for £7.99 for the 750g, £5.99 for the 500g and £2.69 for the 100g. The latter mini panettone is also available on a 2 for £4 offer so it's a great time to give some of the different versions a try!
