A new year for '08, a new life and better posts for this blog. Panetonne, an italian bread made from a rich dough with dried fruits and peels. The first time I tasted this bread was ofcourse in Italy. They wrap it in a huge conical box with a sturdy handle since the bread is quite dense. I admit it was a little underbaked and the bright lighting from the background made it even more look pale. I used a special baking pan here which I know was really meant for baking such type of specialty bread. The family enjoyed a few slices with tea and hot chocolate in the days of 2007's holiday .
