Try THIS At Home... Instead

Now, this is a loaf of bread!  Homemade, fresh, fluffy, airy and made with real flour!  That's right... I caved.  But I just had a slice!  Toasted with butter.  And it was divine.  Pure heaven.  But it tastes just as tasty plain when it's warm or in french toast form!

You can easily find Panettone in any Italian market or deli.  But this time we wanted to try making it fresh in our bread machine while using Donna Rathmell German's recipe with a couple minor changes.  And there is nothing like smelling freshly baked bread in your home!

What you'll need:

Bread Machine
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp freshly grated lemon peel
3 cups bread flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/3 cup golden raisins
2/3 cup candied fruit

Follow your bread machine cooking instructions for how to make this recipe using the above ingredients.  There is a science to this.  But 4 hours later after the machine has done its magic, you then get to slice into a warm sweet Italian bread.
