Miniature Panettone ~ The Italian X'mas Cake 托尼甜麵包

Oh dear, Christmas is getting near ! I can feel the mood is in the air and the weather is getting chill over here too. Last year, I made a fruit cake during this time of the year. However, I wanna tried making the panettone this year,  the Italian dessert. I remember the last time I made one, it was about 4-5 years ago but it wasn't tasted as good as this one here. I think the difference is I'm using half bread flour and half all purpose flour, which causing the texture isn't breaking apart so easily. Plus, this is the first time making sweet bread by mixing flour with butter to crumbly form before further process. The out come is overwhelming ! I found this wonderful recipe from Martha Stewart site.

Ingredients :
1 TB  instant yeast
100ml  warm milk
1/3 cup  all purpose flour

1 egg yolk
2 eggs
1 tspn  vanilla essence
1-1/2 cup dried mix fruits, soaked with 4 TB brandy overnight
(cranberries, raisins, candied citrus & cherries)

1 cups  all purpose flour
1 cup  bread flour / high protein flour
3 TB  sugar
a pinch of salt
170gm  cold butter, chopped

* Egg glazing : 1 egg yolk + 1 tspn milk
* icing for dusting

Method :
(1) combine ingredients (A), mix well then set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
(2) put ingredients (C) into mixer then blend till well cooperated to form dry crumb.
(3) now, beat together ingredients (B) into ingredients (A) till well mixed.
(4) next, add (A) & (B) mixture into ingredient (C) and let to knead till a sticky smooth dough is formed. Then leave to rest for 2 hours.
(5) once its ready, knead dough to release extra air bubbles then place it to working table.
(6) divide dough into 14 portions and place each into cupcake paper cups, then let to rest for another 30 minutes.

And finally, nom nom nom..... enjoying part of the masterpiece. Love how the texture turns out. Absolutely, soft, moist & delicious and smells really good too ! Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy.
