    1 hour 35 min

    This panettone recipe calls for both a bread maker and an oven, and is more rich and flavourful than most - you just can't find many panettone recipes that have rum or cream.

    Yum recipe. Thanks for sharing.  -  15 Apr 2012


    Have tried this recipe and used two teaspoons of yeast and general purpose flour, rather than strong flour. It was very good. Just a little more fruit I think and then it wopuld be perfect.  -  20 Jan 2014


    I have not tried this recipe, but I would assume that it should be a teaspoon of yeast not a tablespoon? This seems excessive by far?  -  05 Oct 2012
