PAN CO'SANTI (walnut, raisin & cinnamon bread) : Original Italian Recipe

If you are in Siena around this period you will find almost everywhere a cake called “Pan co’ Santi”. The translation could be “Bread with Saints” and its name is due to All Saint’s Day, the 1st of November, the festive day in occasion of which it is prepared. In Tuscan dialect the saints are walnuts and raisins that you can find inside this fluffy and sweet bread. People from Siena use to serve “Pan co’ Santi” with new wine or “vin santo”, a sweet fortified wine typical from Tuscany.
