Have you ever had PANDORO?
It’s a typical Christmas dessert. The translation of Pandoro is Golden Bread. It is a sweet tall bread, that is served sliced.
It’s not easy to make it home and you can buy a cheap one in every grocery store and better but more expensive Pandoro in few bakeries or Pastry Shops ( Pasticceria).
You can serve it with a home made Cheese Custard to make it softer and sweeter. It is the same Crema al Mascarpone used to make Tiramisù.
