- 500 grams of flour
- 30 grams of brewer's yeast
- 120 grams of butter
- 180 grams of eggs (3 or 4 eggs)
- 100 grams of sugar
- 80 cc or ml of water
- 660 grams of dehydrated / candied fruits and nuts to taste
- 1 teaspoon salt
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Sift the flour into a bowl and form a hole in the center. Place sugar, water and yeast (shelled) in the center and leave to ferment. Observe that this fermentation is assimilated to a shaving foam, then you must spread the salt around the edges (between the flour and the walls of the bowl without touching the ferment), and then knead incorporating the eggs.
Once we have a homogeneous dough for Genoese sweet bread, we dump it on a table and add the butter in cubes (it can also be ointment). Adding the butter will make it difficult to knead (sticky dough) but not to add more flour, but to knead vigorously to generate the gluten until we see that the dough is easily detached from the table or counter. I advise you to hit the dough against the table by lifting it with one hand and then whipping it against the table many times until it comes off and then form a bun with it.
Trick: If they respect the proportions, the mixing will be easier.
In a bowl sprinkle a little flour, place the Genoese pandolce bun inside and cover it to prevent air from entering. Let stand in a warm place until you double the volume (Approximately 1 hour).
Sprinkle flour on the table and roll out the dough bun from the genoa cake, then add the fruits and nuts. One of the techniques for incorporating fruits is to roll the dough with the fruits, and once the roll has been formed with a knife, cut it into slices and form a tower with them, but as each one is placed on top, it must be put in a different position and then proceed to a slight kneading.
Form a bun with the Genoese panettone dough and then put in a floured bowl, cover and put in the refrigerator 4 or 6 hours (It can also be done without a refrigerator).
Put a platter on top, put the Genoese sweet bread roll and lightly crush the center. Bring baked 180 ° C for 30/35 minutes.
Decorate the Genoese panettone with white icing and / or chocolate ganache for example.
