MY PANETTONE RECIPE
(adapted from the Hitachi bread machine book)
3cups bread flour
1 stick butter
3tablespoons dry milk
4 tablespoons candied fruit
1/4 cup raisins(I like golden raisins here)
2tsp instant yeast (red SAF preferable)
egg wash for the tops
I mix this in my bread machine through the first rise. I then take it out and shape it into three large or 6 small loaves. To get the traditional round shape I use baking flower pots. I have these in two sizes.
These odd looking giant mushrooms tasted fine but what a mess to look at. I then decided that I must use all four of my big pots. So after a few hours I tried again!
Guess what is under the cloth? Of course.......
SUCCESS! These look more like the Pope's hats they are suppose to resemble! And still delicious...
