A Bread A Month: December's Panettone

Supermarkets are well-stocked with Panettone, Pandoro, and Stollen at this time of year, and I could easily go out and grab all three, yummy cakes. But where's the challenge in that?
19.Dec.10 Panettone 2nd rising
Second rising / proofing
3 egg yolks,
butter,
sugar,
yeast,
400 gm flour,
salt,
lots of sultanas / raisins,
candied peel...
1 hour 45 minutes of rising, and
after baking for 1 hour,
we get a Panettone.
20.Dec.10 Panettone for breakfast
Breakfast!
20.Dec.10 surprisingly fluffy Panettone when heavy with sultanas and candied peel
Surprisingly fluffy, despite being heavily packed with candied peels and raisins.

And with this, my friends, we have come to the end of 'A Bread A Month 2010'!

Q. Any recipes worth repeating?
Yes! Pizza dough (obviously), cup-of-tea loaf, Ham braid, and Croissants.

Q. Where have you been getting the bread recipes from?
A Bread A Month - the enabler This book!

Q. Will there be a 2011 version?
Yes, probably! Would you like to read about it?

  2. Yay!!! Truthfully, this has been the yummiest challenge I've come across...and the panettone looks so yummy; I'm a sucker for raisins. I would love to see a new version next year. Maybe a different donut each month? ;)
