This was the second panettone recipe I've tried this Christmas. The first was less than sucessful. I used the dough cycle because I wanted to bake the loaves in mini-loaf pans. I found out with the first batch that my bread machine doesn't signal for add-ins on dough cycle. The second time I added them a few minutes before the end of the second knead only to make an batch that was beautiful on top and an ugly, soggy mess on the bottom. Third time I removed the dough a few minutes before the end of the knead cycle and massaged the fruit (and pine nuts I added) in by hand. That worked. Baked for 25 minutes at 350 and coated with butter when removed. Beautiful.
