Preparation:

To make an airy Italian panettone cake, the weight of the products must be measured with special precision: you will need kitchen scales.

The eggs are put in the fridge in advance so that they are at room temperature. We separate the proteins from the yolks: we only need the yolks.

The butter is also removed from the fridge in advance to soften it.

Sift the flour through a sieve into a deep bowl. Then add the sugar and vanilla sugar, as well as the dry yeast. Mix all the dry ingredients with a blender.

In another bowl, combine the yolks and honey. Heat the milk a little and pour in the yolks, then mix. Pour the liquid ingredients dry and mix with a blender.

Then add soft butter to the dough in portions and continue kneading the dough with your hands: it takes about 10 minutes.

Wash the lemon well under running water, wipe with a towel and remove the skin. Add it to the dough and mix for another 5 minutes. Collect the dough in a layer, cover with cling film and place in a warm place with no drafts. The dough should grow well: it will take 3 to 6 hours.

Meanwhile, wash the candied fruit and raisins and pour in some boiling water. If you want, you can add a little brandy or rum. Leave the fruit in this state for several hours. Then pour them into a colander to drain off excess liquid and spread on paper towels.

Knead the leavened dough again with a blender or by hand. Then add the nuts and mix again.

We place paper shapes for Panettone on a baking tray – no need to grease them with anything, and if you use other shapes – grease them with oil. Divide the dough into each shape, filling one-third.

Place the dough with the dough in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours. For example, in a preheated oven at 50 ° C. During this time, the dough should increase slightly in size.

Then heat it to 180 ° C and bake the panettone cakes for about 25-30 minutes – if small or about 40-45 minutes – if large. Remove and allow to cool.

You can decorate the top with icing or melted chocolate. Serve an appetizing Italian panettone cake and enjoy the taste.
