Wheelie Wednesday - Pannettone

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom and I are baking Pannettone bread in our bread machine today!
We made one last week and it was so yummy that mom and dad ate it all and dad has requested that mom and I please make another one.

The recipe calls for 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons of milk but mom has eggnog in the house and she thought that it might add a nice flavor. And seeing as the eggnog is richer than milk, we decided to do 1/2 cup of eggnog and 1/2 cup of water + 2 Tablespoons of water.
Mom is afraid that straight eggnog might be too heavy for a yeast bread? We shall see!
This is the candied fruitcake mix getting added in!And we're adding crushed anise seed and some anise extract because we like the flavor.
Here is the recipe in case anyone else would like to make it:

Mix in the order given~

Into the bread pan place 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk
Add 1 egg
Add 3 Tablespoons of butter, sliced into smaller pieces
Add 3 cups of unbleached flour
Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar
Add 1 teaspoon of salt
Add 1 cup of candied fruitcake mix
Add 3/4 teaspoons of anise seed and 1/4 teaspoon of anise extract
Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of bread yeast over the top.

We're all set to close the lid and push the start button!
In 3 hours and 30 minutes we'll be popping a nice hot loaf of bread out of the bread pan but in the meantime, get ready for delicious smells to be happening in our kitchen!

Here is the finished loaf! It's ready to eat for breakfast tomorrow! Dad will be so pleased! I guess the eggnog wasn't too heavy! The bread has height!

This is a Christmas card that mom's friend, Elaine sent to us. Isn't it just adorable!
See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

We have a bread machine too! It is a tad scary when it runs, though, and I stay far far away.



MMMM! I can smell it too! Yummers. Are you taking delivery orders?

Mack said...

My mom has been wanting to replace her bread machine for a long time - I think this just sealed the deal!!!

I hope you and Maggie & Mitch get a taste.

We don't have a bread machine, but just looking at that, we've almost decided to get one. Mom makes all of our bread by hand - she's wondering if she can convert that recipe. We'll see what happens.

Pannetonne, we love that. Our Nonna always gives them out at Christmas and Easter.
We've got a breadmaker. Thanks for the recipe. B will give it a go. He is our chief breadmaker in this household. He makes fresh bread everyday for the B&B guests.

Noah xx ps happy new year pals. D says see you soon.

We think egg nog makes everything better! Moms have never had that bread- but it looks sooo good. And lots of work! I bet muscles are tired after mixing all that!
We can smell it baking now!

Sue said...

We all listen for the final bell on the bread machine that says it's done. Mom lets us all share a slice, even the birds. Yum, there's nothing quite like freshly baked bread.

Lorenza said...

The Panetone looks delicious!
I am sure the eggnog made it better!
Kisses and hugs

The yeast is in the fruitcake mix??
Because there was no yeast in your
recipe. I have been thinking of getting a bread machine. I make bread by hand and it is getting harder and harder. Not as young as I use to be.
Happy and Healthy new year to you all!!!
