  • 150 gram flower
  • 300 gram Manitoba flower - for sale online
  • 150 gram boter
  • 150 gram raisins
  • 150 gram sugar
  • 75 gram mixed nuts
  • 50 gram candied fruit
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tl fennel seed
  • 1 el honey
  • 1 orange
  • 15 gram baking powder - 1 bag

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Grab a bowl and mix in the raisins, nuts, candied fruit and fennel seeds and mix well. 
  • Melt the butter in a pan. Squeeze the orange (keep the juice).
  • Take a mixing bowl and add the two types of flour, sugar, honey, two eggs, melted butter, orange juice and baking powder. Mix this with a wooden spoon and then continue by hand until a nice ball of dough forms. 
  • Place the dough ball on the counter and sprinkle the mix of nuts, etc. over the dough. Knead the dough further by hand and add the nut mix little by little so that everything is well distributed throughout the dough. 
  • Make a flat ball to form the shape of the panettone and cut a large triangle into the top of the dough with a knife. Take a baking tray and cover it with baking paper. Place the panettone on top and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 1 hour. 
  • Use a setting on the oven so that both the top and bottom of the panettone get heat. 
  • Check with a skewer whether the panettone is ready. If no dough sticks to it, it's done! Let it cool down a bit and then:
  • Delicious bites!
