Pandoro and Chocolate Panetonne £3.99 each @ Lidl

MoocowdaysMoocowdays

Ist post, hope I did it right.

Love this stuff and I usually make it tradition to have one for Christmas day. So was quite pleased when I spotted stacks of these at Lidl today for £3.99 each! And they are huge (Pandoro 1000g and Panetonne 800g) . Usually more expensive elsewhere, even for supermarket's own brand. So got one of each :-)

    Very differcult to explain other than they are a very light sponge with currants and candied peel in.Nothing special in my opinion.

    Me too,I reckon both of them will hit the big players hard this Christmas...There is more to life than £5 boxes of Roses/Quality St.,which seems to be the be all and end all for the big Supermarkets.

    Aldi and Lidl have some excellent chocolate goodies and their gingerbread is gorgeous

    I find these really hit and miss, sometimes they taste amazing, sometimes a little dry.

    Seems quite expensive for sponge cake. I think I tried one of these a few years ago when they were discounted after christmas. Didn't seem particularly great as sponge cakes go, not really worth the money I'd paid. If your value conscious you'll probably find it a lot cheaper to make your own. However that said looking at tehwabbit's comment perhaps post christmas the product wasn't at its freshest and maybe thats why it wasn't that great. I personally wouldn't buy again even discounted.

    Its like how the French have brioche and so the Italians have Panetonne. Not tried the Pandoro yet, but Panetonne is a light delicate sweet bread/cake. Its perfect for me, as I dont like the really sweet and stodgy Christmas cakes.

    Great for making an alternative twist on bread and butter pudding ( doesn't sound right to me but I hope you get the idea )

    These can be very dry sponges and certainly nothing special in my opinion!

    Rather have a lovely moist slice of cherry fruit cake with my coffee..:p

    OMG its delicious !! and Aldi is one of the best for the best price ... its very traditional around Christmas & Easter in Italian families - its made for sharing ..
    Pandoro (pan d'oro) is a traditional Italian sweet yeast bread, most popular around Christmas and New Year. Typically a Veronese product, pandoro is traditionally shaped like a frustum with an 8 pointed-star section.

    It is often served dusted with vanilla scented icing sugar made to resemble the snowy peaks of the Italian Alps during Christmas.

    Modern taste sometimes calls for pandoro to have a hole cut into its bottom and a part of the soft interior to be removed, the cavity is then filled with chantilly cream or vanilla gelato. Cream or gelato can be served as a garnish to pandoro slices.
