This is a Christmas bread that I got out of an artisan bread book. Leftover Panettone makes great French Toast (see recipe #200571 by wicked noodle). The story goes that a baker, named Toni, from Milan, fell in love with a beautiful woman who passed his bakery every day. The baker was determined to create a magnificent bread to tempt her to come into the bakery. It took him six months, but finally created a tall, domed loaf that lured her inside. But when their eyes met, he fell out of love with her. However, his work was not in vain. He called his new creation "Pan di Toni" (Toni's bread) and eventually became Panettone. Although the citron is the fruit that is in this bread, I don't like it as well as other candied fruit, so I chop candied cherries in their place. That is not the traditional Panettone, but tastes good and is very pretty.
