Bauli Pandoro and Panettone cakesHow many of you love to entertain guests in your home? I know I do and it’s something I do pretty regularly. I love playing hostess but I don’t always know what to serve or have a few days to spend in my kitchen making it.

If that sounds like you…read on!

Bauli Pandoro and Panettone cakes

During the holidays I spent 9 days in the hospital having surgery and dealing with kidney stones. Matter of fact, I got released on New Year’s Eve at around 5 PM in the evening. On top of that, my family had already made plans to come over to our home to spend the evening with us…since I was hospitalized for Christmas. Yikes!

Luckily for me…I had received the Bauli Authentic Italian IL Pandoro DI Verona Limonce to review for all of you a few days earlier. This is a ready to eat oven baked cake that can be eaten as is…or turned into an even fancier dessert by checking out the How To videos listed above.

Bauli Pandoro and Panettone cakes

This is a super rich & moist lemon cream cake that is packed full of yummy flavor. If you love lemon…you’ll love this one for sure! It comes with a lemony powdered sugar that you can shake on top of it or leave it off…entirely up to you and your taste buds. As you can see, we used it and were super happy that we did.

Each of these delicious dessert cakes has 9 hearty servings. We decided to slice our’s a little smaller and got about 12 nice size servings. Each serving has about 330 calories with 140 calories from fat. Not bad at all.

Everyone who tried it absolutely loved it! My great auntie was Italian and was always making a variety of lemon flavored cakes & desserts and this is something she would of definitely loved! It’s rich, decadent, moist and delicious! It satisfies your sweet tooth and so much more!

I’m glad that I had this on-hand for our little impromptu New Year’s Eve party. I had something delicious to serve to our guests and I didn’t have to spend any extra energy baking (trust me, I have none right now). This cake tasted fresh and we loved it!

  1. I have seen these but not tried them but I love lemon desserts so think that I would like these cakes. It is a nice idea to have a dessert ready made that is so good. Wish I could go get one right now.

  2. I’ve never tried Panettone but I always see it at stores during the holiday season. The lemony powdered sugar on top sounds amazing. Hope you’re better after the hospital visit!

  3. Oh, poor you! I’m happy to hear that you’re out of the hospital, and hopefully, feeling much better by now. But what a great chance to taste and share the Pandoro di Limonce cake on New Year’s Eve! I love those Italian cakes and breads, and often pick them up during after-Christmas sales (because I’m cheap like that). Coincidentally, I’ve got a Panettone-style loaf in my bread machine right now! We’ll enjoy it for breakfast for several days.

    Looks fab! I love panettone, especially toasted with butter and a hot coffee. Yum!

  5. Cute little cakes. Doesn’t look like there’s much to them but you can sure dress them up. A nut sauce would look good. That’s a great deal if you can find them on special after Christmas.

    You know I was at CVS today to get a prescription and saw these cakes! They were oon sale, and I thought- not another fruit cake. I guess it wasnt a fruit cake at all and they sound like they would be delicious. The best part? They must have been sold at Christmas, they were 90 percent off. I am going to pick a couple up!
    Hope youre feeling better!!!!
