Saf-instant yeast 11g

Serves 4
1 sachet Saf-instant yeast 11g
270g flour
80g sugar
50g milk
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
90g butter
11ml orange flour water
40g candied orange
110g raisins
20g sugar in grains (for decoration)
5g salt

*For the best results, first bring the ingredients to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and the Saf-instant yeast. In another bowl, mix together the sugar, milk, butter, eggs, egg yolks and orange flower water. Using a spoon, gradually incorporate the dry ingredients followed by the pieces of candied orange and raisins and mix until a consistent dough is obtained. Knead and shape into a ball. Transfer the dough to a bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Leave to rest for 1h. Once risen, work the dough gently to remove the air and place in a generously buttered panettone mould. Brush the top of the dough with oil. Cover with plastic film and leave in a warm place to rise until the dough has reached the top of the mould.


Using a serrated knife, mark the top of the dough with a cross and bake in a pre-heated oven for 40-50 mins at 180°C.
