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.
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
mini semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)
1In a bowl combine eggs, sugar, orange marmalade and melted butter.
2Add flour, baking powder and baking soda.
3Fold in raisins, candied fruits and optional semi sweet chocolate chips. (optional : soak the raisins and candied fruits in a little brandy the day before)
4BAKE in a 9x5x3" loaf bread pan greased and floured at 350F. for 50 min. or until top is amber golden.
5Cool it and store in a bread bag to keep moist.
