Sasha's Pandoro Christmas Cake

Sasha's Pandoro Christmas Cake

The Christmas cake I prepare every year.


Borsari Classic Pandoro
Whipping cream
Icing sugar
Freshly squeezed orange juice or lemon juice
Orange or lemon zest
Assortment of berries
(Optional) Sparklers


  1. Whisk some mascarpone and whipping cream together (1:1 ratio).
  2. (Optional) Add in some icing sugar if you'd like to sweeten.
  3. Add in a touch of freshly squeezed orange juice or lemon juice along with some zest.
  4. Slice your panettone twice so you'll end up with three separate pieces.
  5. Starting with the broadest layer at the bottom, spread of a layer of cream on top.
  6. Stack the second layer, rotating it just slightly - repeat this with the third and last layer.
  7. Decorate it with an assortment of berries - redcurrants, blueberries, raspberries or even kumquats if you've got those on hand.
  8. Using a sieve, dust some icing sugar over it to make it look like snow.
  9. (Optional) Top it with some sparklers!
