things you never knew you needed...
Thanks to earthlydelights recent post on egg cubers I went to the fantes.com website to check them out & discovered that there is such a thing as a pandoro pan. For baking pandoro. Have I ever had pandoro? No. So why am I suddenly obsessed with the need to make it? It looks like a lighter, easier version of pannettone.
Mind you, I SCOFFED at the pannettone molds! Mom always baked hers in coffee cans, who needs to spend money on a mold for pannettone?
Anyway, pandoro seems like a great thing for Christmas. My MIL loves all things Italian and I can bake a second for our traditional Italian Christmas Eve fish-fest at my mom's.
So I ordered a pandoro mold. And it's on it's way to me. I can't wait!
On my way to work this morning it occurred to me that the pandoro mold looks a lot like those molds that I already have for shaping tortillas into bowls for taco salad...
