Lemon panettone?

Anyone know where I might find one? A client gave my husband one last year and it made the best french toast I've ever eaten. The bread was lemon-infused, with a modest amount of lemon flavored custard in it (toward the bottom of the cake). The custard had limoncello in it or some other lemony alcohol. I've only seen the more traditional type w/ raisins in my Carroll Gardens neighborhood, but perhaps I've not looked hard enough. Would love to find one, preferably in Carroll Gardens, but I'll travel for it. Thanks in advance.

    1. Ive not seen variations on this in Brooklyn italian bakeries, but places that carry imports have many variations. D Coluccio for example has a lot of different specialty types as do many italian groceries that carry imported pannetone around Christmas. Id suggest in checking in your local italian groceries and tell them what you are looking for - they ight be able to order for you.

        Coluccio always these filled panettone and pandoro and I suspect places like Eagle on 5th Avenue would, too; certainly large Italian grocers would.

      2. Thanks, Jen Kalb and Bob96 for reviving this chat. Fairway, of all places, had a big selection of pannetone on display yesterday, including lemon. They had a few different brands, several different flavors, and 2 different sizes -- the traditional high one and also mini ones.
