Where does Panettone come from?

The cake filled with dried fruits and dried grapes is an Italian Christmas tradition and originated in Milan, but there are three different versions to explain its origin. The first version is that the product was born in the year 900, invented by a baker named Tony. For this reason, the cake would have become known as pane-di-Tone. The second version of the story says that the chef Gian Galeazzo Visconti, first Duke of Milan, prepared the product for a party in 1395. And the last version tells that a certain Ughetto decided to get a job in a bakery in order to be close to his beloved. Adalgisa, daughter of the owner. There, he would have invented panettone, between 1300 and 1400. Happy with the news, the baker allowed Ughetto to marry Adalgisa. In Brazil, the tradition began to expand after the Second World War, when Italian immigrants decided to make the same panettone consumed by them in Italy at Christmas time.
