Panettone - Italian Fruitcake
Yield: 4 Servings
1 c All-purpose flour (plus 2 TBL)
1/8 ts Salt
1 pk fast-rising active dry yeast
2 tb Warm water (see yeast package for temperature)
3 tb Granulated sugar, divided
8 ts margarine
1/2 ts Each grated orange peel and brandy extract
3 oz Mixed dried fruit, coarsely chopped
Sift together flour and salt onto sheet of wax paper; set aside. In small bowl sprinkle
yeast over water; add 1 teaspoon sugar and stir to dissolve. Let stand until foamy, about
5 minutes. In mixing bowl, using electric mixer at medium speed, beat eggs with remaining
sugar until frothy; add margarine and beat until well combined. Continue to beat while
adding orange peel and brandy extract. Add yeast mixture, then gradually beat in sifted
flour; beat at high speed for 5 minutes. Add dried fruit, beating until thoroughly
combined. Cover bowl with clean damp towel or plastic wrap and let stand in warm
draft-free area until dough is doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray 3-cup fluted mold with nonstick cooking spray. Punch dough
down, then turn into prepared mold; bake in middle of center oven rack for 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 325 F and bake until top is browned and cake begins to pull
away from mold, about 30 minutes longer (cover with foil if Panettone is browning too
quickly). Unmold onto wire rack and let cool.
