    Incorrect; choux pastry is not cake, therefore your argument is invalid. Twinkies are, in fact, merely a lazy Swiss roll.

    Had a panettone for dinner, its so good!!! I should probably have eaten something healthier but here we are

    It was a traditional one with the dried fruits and stuff, and i know they're not for everyone, so here's the discussion topic: how do you feel about panettone?

    Ive never had the chocolate one, but i can tell you the fresh kind is immeasurably soft (aside from the crust), and the candied fruits are a bit bitter but overall fits with the cake's mild sweetness really well

    No such thing here. We do have easter breads, which seem to be quite similar, and i am in favour.

    So pannetonne seem to be cake shaped from what i´ve seen, but the texture is like easter breads, which are sweet, i believe contain milk, and well, bread shaped or sometimes braided. traditionally have raisins, but plain is also an option.

    I like Panettone now with a milky hot drink I can dip pieces of it in like the gremlin I am but the first time I ever had it I was Betrayed because I thought it was a kind of muffin :(

    Hot chocolate and panettone is honestly the best combination imo

    I'm not a great fan of the chocolate chips, but I think if I had a fruit one I'd really enjoy it.

    So someone who happens to live in my area posted a link to that in a server I’m in, and she made the grave mistake of mentioning that she’d seen it locally…

    I’ll report back if I go through with it.

    Is there a functional difference between soup and stew and if so, what's the defining factor?

    Chunks.

    The more chunks, the closer it is to stew. Bonus if the chunks are in a broth that's been thickened in some way. If the broth is more liquidy than water and there are few to no chunks, leaving a spoon not just viable but 100% the only way to eat it, it's a soup. If a fork is viable but infuriating due to the amount of chunks, then it's a stew.

    I agree with the chunk-based definition, but personally rather than spoon/fork, I'd differentiate them by spoon/bread. I can eat stew with pieces of bread; chicken noodle soup would make the bread too soggy.

    I do not use bread based measurements as I dip bread into all stews and soups that I am permitted. Soups make my bread something I don't need to chew and that's just beautiful. Stews simply flavor it and make it slightly easier to chew but really I'd rather not have to chew ever.
