bread baking challenge # 24 PANETONE


PANETTONE =pane di tony (Antony's bread).

First I added all the ingredients, mix all with the paddle of my "Cuisine art",

I add butter, soften, at room temperature, tbs by tablespoon, until is well mixed in the dough,

and then I add dried cherry(I didn't have any raisins) soaked for a while in dark rum, orange, and lemon essence. I zest a lemon and add it to the dough, to mix it all together after I change the paddle with the hook.
The hook will knead for 10 minutes, at medium speed.

After 2 hours, the dough will rise a lot, almost getting out of my bowl


Cut the dough into 2 parts, to bake in 2 pots. I chose to use an old big coffee can because I read a long time ago it is good for this kind of Christmas bread.

I arrange a coffee can lined with parchment paper,  and I put half of the dough, at the bottom of the can.
 2 more hours until the dough is raised at the end of the can.


Bake at 325F for 1h and 30 minutes. I tried for 1 hour to see if it is baked, but the stick came out full of dough, so I keep it in the oven for 30 minutes more.
Perfectly brown and well done!

I keep it on a wooden stick, to cool down and I am going to cut a slice when is cooled.
The whole house smell of vanilla, sugar, oranges, and lemon.

What a remembrance of my child's Christmas days!!!



  1. Azi m-am delectyat cu panetone, copt de tine si am constata ca e mult mai bun decit cel al italienilor. Bravo tie!

  2. Fabulous! Good for you! I've always wanted to try making this, but never put the time aside. Yours looks delicious.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Merry Christmas darling! I hope it's everything you hoped for. Love the look of the panettone! Very very creative.

    I have to tell you, I never made a better choice in my life than to switch over to pastry as a career. I love it. It's my true passion.

    I'm in NJ now, no longer Vermont. One day I'll go back though :)

    Best wishes to you and your family!
