The Panettone is one of Sicily’s typical desserts eaten during the Christmas period and is much appreciated for its spongy texture, which makes it the ideal accompaniment for breakfast or for a quick snack! Indeed this is also served as dessert at the end of a meal during the festive period, alongside a good cup of espresso. Making this typical Italian cake with your own hands is no mean feat, so be very careful! It requires long hours of rising and painstaking preparation of the dough, but the final satisfaction is unparalleled. Here you will find our recipe for a Classic Panettone!

Let's start with the first dough, dissolving the sugar in the warm water in a bowl and keeping it aside. Pour the sourdough into the planetary mixer, add the egg yolks and mix with the K hook for 3 minutes.


Add the water and the sugar dissolved previously, gradually incorporate the flour and wait for it to be absorbed into the mixture.


Insert the claw beater and increase the speed of the planetary mixer. Add the chopped soft butter and continue to knead until the dough is firm and comes away from the sides of the bowl.


Transfer the dough into a buttered bowl, cover with a tea towel and place in the oven with the light switched off. At this point, you will have to wait about 12 hours for the dough to triple its volume. Do not open the oven door to avoid exposing the dough to temperature changes that could affect the proper fermentation.


After this time, put the dough in the freezer to cool for about twenty minutes, then put it in the planetary mixer and gradually incorporate all the ingredients of the second dough, continuing to work it with the hook starting with the sugar, then the egg yolks, butter, malt, salt. Start mixing and add the raisins and the candied fruit, making sure that they're evenly spread in the dough.


When the dough is ready, transfer it to the work surface, round it off with your hands and let it rest for 30 minutes covered with a bowl, then reshape it and let it rest for another half an hour uncovered. Place the dough inside the 1 kg mould, cover with cling film and leave to rise at a temperature of 28 C° until it reaches the rim.


Remove the foil, make an X-shaped incision on the surface and bake in a static oven preheated to 160 C° for 45 minutes.


Leave to rest and serve!
