Yes, he does. It is the last of the French Toast made with panettone, a sweet cake only made at the Christmas season. It is a cross between a pound and a sponge cake. My friend, fellow blogger and fellow Louisvillian, Barb Skinner turned us on to this treat. (Thanks Barb) The cake is baked in a mold. And is huge. And full of preservatives. So we have this Sunday morning treat three times. Spread over several weeks. This was the last of it.
But the best was the fruit. Blueberries (yes they are from Chile) and blood oranges.
If you ever are visiting Italy in January, February or March, don’t miss the blood oranges. They are one of the things that if I lived in America I would so miss. I know they are available in the US it would be how many I could afford. Here, I get a 4 lb bag of them for less than $2. And could easily eat 4 or 5 a day. (not a good thing for my teeth or stomach so I try to hold it down to 2 a day). So good!
