I think the recipe is missing a step. After testing baked panettone with a toothpick, then...? And is there a recipe for the frosting?
panettone has no frosting :)
Sorry for the error, it has been corrected, Fedechica is correct, Panettone does not have frosting.
Italian Panettone actually has a special extract that gives its very particular taste. I was never able to figure what they use in Italy...
