If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a picture of a failed attempt to make a decent panettone… I am not 100% happy with the look of this either, but I liked the taste and I decided to publish the recipe anyway 🙂

The panettone dough requires lots of time and work, but I wanted to find an easier way of doing it by using my breadmaker (Panasonic SD 2500). Although there is a special programme for the panettone (baking included), I have decided to use the breadmaker for the dough only (knead and rise phases), and to bake it in the oven in a proper Panettone mould, bought on Amazon (Panettone Mould 500gr).

After the fifth attempt, I called it a day and hope to be more successful in 2020!

Panettone 2019

Difficulty: Difficult Prep Time 110 mins Cook Time 55 mins Total Time 2 hrs 45 mins


Additional ingredients


  1. Place all the ingredients in the bread pan following the order of the list of ingredients (milk, eggs - beaten, butter, flour, sugar, yeast, and salt). Select the dough programme 21 (brioche dough) and press Start. This first part of the programme will last 55 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, peel the zest from 2 oranges and boil them in a saucepan for 1 minute. Remove the zest from the water and finely chop them. Soak the raisins in cold water for 20 minutes, then drain very well.
  3. After 55 minutes, the breadmaker will beep to indicate you can add the additional ingredients, i.e. butter (cubed and cold), raisins, and orange zest. Press Start.
  4. Once the second part of the programme is concluded (the breadmaker will beep 8 times to indicate the end of the programme), remove the bread pan from the breadmaker machine and transfer the dough into a Panettone mould of 500gr. Place the mould onto a baking tray first.
  5. Bake the Panettone in a preheated oven at 190C for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature at 170C and bake for another 35-40 minutes.
  6. Once cooled down, dust the Panettone with some icing sugar.
