Beside Panettone, Pandoro is one of the most common dessert during the festivities.
Pandoro is a sweet Christmas bread from Verona, star-shaped and dusted with powdered sugar (some say to make it look like the nearby mountains).
The name pan d’oro means “bread of gold,” and since white bread cost a lot in the Middle Ages and was consumed only by the wealthy, that’s exactly what this would have seemed like to the Veronese families who pinched pennies to enjoy this treat once a year.
Pandoro may be served with many types of creams or sauces, such as mascarpone topping, melted chocolate, or flavored whipped cream.
