Fruit and Nut Panettone { for bread machine recipe }

Original recipe is adopted from ‘Bread Machine Cookbook’ by Better Homes and Garden.

When it comes to making bread, often I doubt myself with the thought of will the bread will rise or will the bread be fluffy when it comes out of the oven. With that in mind I hardly make bread. Not to mention that making bread takes more patents and I don’t feel I have time to use , waiting until it rises and then baking. You know, I have plenty of time inside the house during the winter. But just to spend all day in the kitchen in this fine summer weather, would really test my patients. I would rather be outside playing with my son and shooting.

One of my dear friends just gave me a bread machine. Walla! That is a great solution for me. So I made this bread for the first time, real bread I meant. Using bread machine is very easy! I think the machine does the job by itself.  I think my 5 year old boy could do the job LOL.

Festive Fruit and Nut Panettone.

For 2 pounds bread.
1 cup milk
2 eggs
½ cup butter (no substitutes), cut up
3 ¾ bread flour
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
½ teaspoon salt
4 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast (2 packages)
1 cup dried tart, cherries (I mixed with papaya dried fruits)
¾ pine nuts

½ cup golden raisins (I don’t use raisins but chocolate sprinkle instead)
1 slightly beaten egg
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon pine nuts
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)

How to:

Add the first 11 ingredients to the machine according to the manufacturer’s directions. Select the dough cycle.
Meanwhile, coat an 8x3-inch spring form pan or soufflé dish with cooking spray. For collar, cut a piece of clean brown wrapping paper into a 25x6-inch strip. Fit the collar around the inside of prepared pan, overlapping slightly. Coat the inside of collar with cooking spray. Set aside.

When cycle is complete, remove dough. Punch down. On a lightly floured surface, gently knead in raisins. Shape dough into a ball. Place in collared pan and flatten slightly to cover bottom of pan. Cover; let rise in a warm place for 45 to 60 minutes or until nearly double.
Stir together the 1 egg the water; brush over top of loaf. Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon pine nuts. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into center of bread comes out clean. If necessary, loosely cover with foil the last 10 to 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning.
Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
