This Easter Panettone Bread is not a traditional Panettone, but a tweaked version of it and it’s a delicious one! This recipe is so easy because you make the dough in your bread machine.
Make the Dough in a Bread Machine
I love bread. There is just nothing more mouthwatering than a freshly baked loaf smothered in butter! But the funny thing is I’ve never actually made bread the traditional way, which is strange because I grew up watching my Grandma bake loaves and loaves of home made bread in her kitchen on the farm…there was seriously no better smelling place on Earth than bread day at Grandma’s. I wish I had learned her bread making magic, but I never did. So my bread making skills, or lack there of, came from a bread machine that we received as a wedding gift. I have to admit though, that I love my bread machine…it’s the greatest invention ever. It takes all the work out of making delicious home made bread, as it kneads and lets the dough rise, then magically bread is created. But the one thing I really dislike about bread machines is the shape of the loaf after it has baked, so I actually only use the machine to make the dough, then I shape it myself and bake it in the oven. That’s what I did with this Easter Panettone recipe.
After making the dough in my bread machine, I kneaded in the lemon zest and currants before shaping it. Then I baked it in my oven, and ended up with at delicious home made loaf of bread that is perfect for Easter brunch. It’s moist and slightly sweet, with a hint of lemon…so delicious!
