Hello, hello my friends!
The Panettone is a famous Italian brioche usually served for Christmas but also, shaped as a dove, for Easter. It’s a delight bite after bite…
It was high time for me to share it with you!
Let’s see the recipe, Chef!
- 10 g dehydrated yeast
- 120 g water
- 500 g flour
- 150 g sugar
- 10 g vanilla sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 100 g butter at room temperature
- 1 g salt
- 100 g candied oranges
- 1 orange zest
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsp icing sugar
- 1 tbsp ground almond
- 2 tbsp sugar pearls
Place the yeast in your food processor bowl. Add the water and combine. Add 100 g flour and shape a ball. This is your levain.
Pour the remaining 400 g of flour on top without combining. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Add both sugars. Knead.
Then add the 2 eggs and the egg yolk, butter and salt. Knead until the dough is smooth and homogeneous.
Cover with a clean linen and leave to rise for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, knead while pouring the orange zest and candied orange cut in small cubes.
Pour in a buttered Panettone mold and set aside for 1 more hour.
Preheat your oven at 170 C / 340 F degrees.
Combine the egg white, icing sugar and ground almond and spread on top of the dough.
Spread sugar pearls.
Cook for 50 minutes.
