For some reason, I always think of that song when I think of Venice:)
It is one of the most requested songs for Gondaliers to sing ……
Yet it is a Neapolitan song.
But this lovely beauty is all Venetian!! It’s a Veneziana.
A Venetian version of Pandoro perhaps or a Panettone, as the dough is similar but without the fruits.
Definitely a festival bread and it does take a little effort but WELL worth it. Continue reading
You know I love sweet breads.
I love all sweet breads but the fruity ones hold a special place in my heart….
This one I love as i put a dollop of molasses or treacle in it, to give it a wee bit of extra oomph!

i am a bit concerned!
My friend told me i was being breadist…………I said “What?’
Sexist, racist, elitist, oldist…..NOW BREADIST!!

In order to appease my breadist leanings, I shall add a new category .
I shall call it greedyboys in honor of my greedy boys who tends to have more cakeist and biscuitish leanings than bread.
It will be cakey/ biscuity type things so then i will not be breadist.
Here is a wee preview of what we can expect to see in greedyboys…….
And I promise to do at least one non bready thing a week!!
Triple Choc chocca cookies
