Here is the recipe for my previous post for Panettone it is reasonably straightforward if a little time consuming but definitely worth all the effort.
355 g Strong flour
1/2 tspn Salt
7g Dried fast acting yeast
3 tblspns Lukewarm water
2 Whole eggs
Vanilla essence/seeds from vanilla pod/paste (as you prefer)
1 Lemon (grated zest)
170g Soft butter
85g Sultanas I prefer golden
60g Candied peel
Make a dough with all ingredients except the fruit and knead until smooth then add the fruit and leave in a bowl covered until double in size.
Go and do some more christmas shopping, this takes a long time, you can even leave it in the fridge overnight.
Gently knock back the dough and get the air out of it and form a smooth ball and place in a baking paper lined tin.
Leave to double it’s size again and cut a cross on the top with a sharp knife and bake in a preheated oven 200 C for 10 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 180 C and continue to bake for maybe 40 minutes or so, you can test it by inserting a skewer or thin knife as you would with a cake.
Remove from oven and cool in the tin for 10 minutes then on a wire rack.
Would love to hear how it turns out for you. Good luck!
