Panettone (in the Bread Machine)

Course Bread, Holiday
Cuisine Italian
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 30 minutes
Servings 1 loaf


  • 2 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup candied peel
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans


  • Add the first 8 ingredients to the mixing bowl in the bread machine.
  • Add the yeast according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • Close the machine and turn it on. If you have an option for "light" baking, use it as this dough browns readily.
  • After the first mixing cycle (about 30 minutes) the machine will stop to allow the dough to rest. Add the fruit and nuts at this time.
  • Check a half-hour or so later to see that they have gotten mixed in thoroughly. On some machines you may need to help it along a little with a spatula.


Some people will argue with me that the pecans are not authentic. They are right, but I love them. Omit them if you like.
This stuff is REALLY good toasted with butter or made into french toast for a very special breakfast.
