Simple Panettone

Annamaria Settanni McDonald Recipe

By Annamaria Settanni McDonald ArtByASM

Panettone is a tradition Italian Yeast Bread with candied fruits. I used to buy it for my mom every holiday but good panettone is expensive. I found a recipe that is great that I make instead of buying panettone at an Italian Import store. It's cheaper and fresher.

    Hi Kristin, I used Sunmaid Fruitbits. I found them by the raisins at the grocery store. the fruitbits were perfect for this recipe unlike candied fruit that you use in fruitcake. Hope you can find them. I did throw a few pieces of chocolate chips in just to try it but think I will leave them out next time I make it, though my husband liked the chocolate chips.
