PANETTONE GENOVESE – A Classic Christmas Cake from my home town Genova – Italy. This panettone has a more robust and dense texture  than the Milanese style because of the absence of  eggs. This panettone is full of dried fruits.The only raising agent is once more my very special sourdough yeast. This panettone requires 12 hours of rest.
