Ingredients (for BB-CEC20, serves 6):
- 210g (210mL) milk
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 427g (3-1/3 cups) bread flour
- 46g (4 Tbsp.) sugar
- 5.6g (1 tsp.) salt
- 57g (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
- 4.2g (1-1/2 tsp.) active dry yeast
- 12 oz. mixed dried fruits (Zante currants or raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries)
- 3 Tbsp. Amaretto or apple juice
- 1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
- 1 Tbsp. grated orange peel
- 1 Tbsp. butter for grease, softened
- 1 tsp. milk for glaze
You will need a panettone paper baking mold with a width between 6.5”-7”, and a height between 4.25”-5”.
1. Before you add the ingredients, make sure the kneading blades are properly attached. Add the Dough ingredients to the baking pan in the order listed.
2. Place the baking pan into the breadmaker, close the lid and plug the cord into the outlet. Select HOME MADE course. Press the CYCLE button, turning OFF the following: Preheat, Rise 1, Rise 2, Rise 3, Shape, Bake, Keep Warm. Select the KNEAD cycle. Press and hold TIME until the display shows 0:20. Then press CYCLE twice to record. Press START.
3. Chop the dried fruits and place them in a microwaveable bowl, adding the Amaretto or the apple juice, then mix thoroughly. Cover and warm the mixture in a microwave at high (1200 w) for 30 seconds. Add the grated lemon and orange peel and mix. Cover and set aside.
4. When the Home Bakery completes kneading, press CANCEL. Remove the dough from the Baking Pan to a lightly floured board. Roll dough into a 12” x 10” rectangle.
5. Mix dried fruits to the dough. Evenly lay out half of the fruit mix to the dough, leaving 2” at the top.
6. Lightly roll over the fruit mix to evenly distribute and seal. Fold the dough in half and pinch the ends. Roll the dough again to a 12” x 10” rectangle once more and repeat step 5 and 6 to mix in the remaining fruit mix, making sure that the fruits are evenly mixed into the dough. Continue by forming the dough into a ball.
7. Grease the panettone paper mold with softened butter using a brush.
8. Place dough at the center of the mold and brush with the remaining butter to keep from sticking to the paper mold. Cover dough loosely with a plastic wrap.
9. Proof the dough in a warm place (75ºF-90ºF) for 2 to 3 hours until the dough has risen taller than the mold.
10. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Brush the surface of the dough with milk for the glaze and bake on the middle rack for 20 minutes. Lower heat to 300ºF and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes. To check if the panettone is ready, stick a skewer into the middle and check to see if it comes out clean from the center of the bread.
11. Remove from the oven and place on a rack, allowing to cool completely. Enjoy!
