Baking Pandoro Cake With Utmost Perfection in Italian Style

When it comes to the variation in baking cakes, we always have to look towards Italian cuisine. Most of the local bakers use the same bread, whipped cream, and flavors every time when you order the cake for a special occasion. Let’s bake something distinctive and purely Italian in your kitchen! We are talking about the famous Pandora cake which as a wonderful history of more than 100 years. Initially, this famous eight star pointed cake was introduced to the wealthy society of Italy. Later, it becomes a popular Christmas cake and an integral part of Italian culture. The secret of pandoro lies behind its kneading and loaded butter. For making fluffy and delicious pandoro cake, you need a reliable recipe as we are mentioning below.

Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour (divided) (300 grams )
  • Unsalted butter (200 grams)
  • Egg yolks (divided) (5)
  • Granulated sugar (divided) (120 grams)

  • Vanilla extract (1 teaspoon)
  • Cream (1/2 cup)
  • Powdered sugar (30 grams)

  • Take it out, unmold and allowed to cool down on a cooling rack. Your pandoro Italian cake is ready to serve. Don’t forget to sprinkle the powdered sugar dust over it before serving.

Some additional tips to make your Pandoro cake more delicious
