Panettone Recipe

This easy panettone recipe delivers the most beautiful sweet bread and is undoubtedly the item that decorates the Christmas table in a way that nothing else can. The panettone stands out above all other items and children glare at it as if it is a gift from above.

We decided to share this panettone recipe now, seeing Easter is around the corner, and in the same way, Christmas is celebrated, we also celebrate Easter with Panettone is an item on our lunch and dinner buffet. I can honestly tell you that people take more pictures of the panettone than anything else. Besides being tasty, it is also a beautiful sweet bread.

Children absolutely adore panettone and I know for a fact that they believe in things we tend to ignore. You can see the glitter in their eyes when they look at the panettone, and I always wish I knew what they were thinking.

We are happy you are here and glad for the opportunity to share special occasions with you. Please tell us what you think of this panettone recipe. You can also take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom

  1. Whisk together the water, eggs, lemon, orange zest, and vanilla in a mixing bowl
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, yeast, and salt. Add the egg mixture and kneed until it forms a soft dough. Add the butter and kneed until it forms a sticky dough. Place the mixture into a lightly greased bowl and cover with a cloth. Allow rising in a warm place for 1 to 1½ hours. At the same time soak the dried fruit in the rum, and allow to soak for the same time as the sweetbread mixture
  3. Fold the fruit mixture into the bread dough until fully incorporated. Pur the panettone mixture into a round baking tin (18 cm), and allow it to rise for another 1½ hours
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Bake for 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove the baked panettone from the oven and place it on a drying rack. Allow cooling completely before serving. Enjoy!
