The taste is authentic.Hard to mix.I added more milk,as it did not POUR well. Would also halve the quantity of nuts and fruit. I think two TABLEspoons of baking powdermore appropriate than 2tsp.This did not rise well at 325 - at 1 hour and 15 min. in the oven I put heat up to 345 Could also use a bundt or angel cake pan but coffee can worked well. Not bad, but just as expensive as pannetone from the bakery.
