This recipe is awesome! I add 1 Tablespoon grated orange peel, candied orange peel, dark and golden raisins, toasted pine nuts, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon orange extract. The flavors of these additions is extraordinary. Thanks for this bread machine recipe. It makes fabulous French toast.
Hmmmmm......the first time I made this one as directed I had a few "glitches." The second time I made it I used the fruit and nut setting on my machine and that turned out much better. (I have a Breadman Ultimate.) Makes a huge loaf and does need a little extra time to finish baking in the middle IMO. I followed Steve's directives and purchased candied citron, orange and lemon separately and that was good advice. I threw in some dried cranberries for color and used lemon extract instead of almond as that's what I had. This is a pretty solid rendition of panettone. If you're looking for the real thing buy it but if you don't mind a close substitute, make this!
This is wonderful! I literally threw this into the bread maker, hoping for the best but not expecting it to be as good as it was. I followed catwhispers recommendation and substituted some oil for butter, with a wonderful buttery flavour as a result. I did not have any candied fruit but figured that I often buy the plain panettone anyway so went for it without. I found the texture a little heavier than a bought one but overall it really had the kind of flavour and 'dryness' that I love. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this recipe Steve I am really pleased to be adding this to my growing collection of bread maker recipes!
This was absolutely wonderful. The only change I made was to use 3 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons oil instead of all oil, since panettone should be traditionally buttery, but the oil probably gives it some of its good texture. Even though I am an almond fanatic, I think this smaller amount of extract works, perhaps because I added the butter. The flavor was nice and subtle, and all blended well together. Thanks for a great recipe.
After trying a number of bread machine panettone recipes, I was very glad to find this one. It was excellent and became my keeper. I also will substitute all or some of the oil for butter as another reviewer has mentioned.
I am new to bread machines and this was my first cake. I replacd the water with milk and half the oil with butter. The panettone was just great. The texture is very good and so is the taste. I shall opt for a lighter crust next time, as it seems a little too dark on medium, but that may be just in my machine. Thank you for an easy and doable recipe.
Made this yesterday. It turned out great, the whole family loved it. I used butter instead of oil, citron, pineapple & candied cherries. Thank you for the recipe.
Great recipe! Tall and light. I used 1 tsp of almond extract as suggested by other reviewers. Very tasty. I used 1 tablespoon of yeast which I think is about one package. This one is a keeper.
I keep making this fabulous bread because as soon as we near the end of a loaf, my husband says, "Please be sure and make more of this bread before we run out!" Excellent toasted for breakfast, it is flavorful but not overpowering, with a nice moist texture. The only changes I make to the recipe are increasing the candied fruit to 3/4 cup and the almond extract to 1 tsp. Thank you Steve for a GREAT addition to my bread recipe collection.
This was a big hit on our Christmas table! I used candied lemon peel, dried apricots, dried cranberries, raisins and dried cherries but omitted the almonds, so added 1/2 tsp more almond extract. So good and so easy. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
