Christmas Italian Style

As panettone was mentioned a few times in our last post, we decided to share our favourite panettone recipe – tried, tested and loved.

Here’s what you’ll need for one panettone:

600 gr cake flour

150 gr castor sugar

1 tsp. quick yeast

a pinch of salt

150 ml warm water

5 eggs

200 gr softened butter


What to do:

Mix together the flour, sugar, yeast, salt and water. Then work the eggs into the dough, stir in the butter and raisins. Bring the dough together and roll it into a ball. Leave to rise for 24 hours.

Lightly oil your baking tin and line it with parchment paper. Knead the dough, place it in the tin, and leave to rise for two hours.

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius, and bake for 20 minutes.
