Panettone is a traditional Italian holiday bread, originally from Milan, although it is served all over Italy and Switzerland. It is a rich yeast bread with dried fruits, candied citrus, and lemon or orange zest.
A small loaf of panettone made with 1 oz. of yeast, 2 1/2 cups of flour, a half-cup of sugar, one egg, five egg yolks, a half-cup of butter, 6 tbsp. of raisins and 2 oz. of candied orange peel, plus salt, contains nearly 3,000 calories, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Nutrient Database. Divided into 12 slices, each slice has 248 calories.
To make a tender panettone with fewer calories, use two eggs and a half-cup of nonfat yogurt instead of one egg and five egg yolks. Omit the butter entirely. In this recipe, each serving would have 160 calories.
Serve slices of toasted panettone with jam or mascarpone cheese for breakfast or any meal or snack. It pairs well with coffee or tea, or a glass of Prosecco. Panettone keeps well, and when it begins to dry out, it can be made into french toast.
