Even if some people insist on calling it "panettone", the Genoese "pandolce" from Genova doesn?t have much in common with the Christmas cake made in Milano. It gets its name from the shape of the bread, slightly rounded on top, but there?s also a version which is flatter, a more recent invention, not as risen and circular in shape which, sweetened by the addition of raisins, pine nuts and pieces of candied fruit, gives a finished product that is enviably appetising. "Panettone" is strictly a Christmas cake, whereas "pandolce" is not typical of any season or festivity, and can be found all year round in the well-stocked shops of Genova and Liguria.
