First dough (evening dough)

Ingredients Preparation
  • 520g

Start with the right sourdough: the yeast must be ready.

  • 185g
  • 590g

Add flour, water and start kneading the dough until a gluten mesh starts forming.

  • 565g
  • 895ml
    water at 24 °C
  • 480g
    egg yolks

Add the butter, which has to be creamy, and then the egg yolks.

When this is done, the evening dough is ready. Put it in a bucket and make a mark where the dough level is so that you can see the difference after proofing. Always wait for the dough until it is three and half or four times the original volume. This takes 8 to 12 hours.

  • 850g
  • 38g
  • 24g
    malt flour
  • 58g
    invert sugar
  • 120g
    orange zest

After the wait, take the dough and create a glutinous mesh again, meaning that the dough needs to become elastic and smooth.

Test it by taking the dough, and pull it so it stretches without breaking.

Put the dough in a bowl and let it rise for 1 hour.


Ingredients Preparation

Cut the dough, weigh it around 520-530 g as this time we want to make a 500 g panettone.

Round it and put it in the moulds to let it rise for 4-6 hours. 

  • 100g

Brush it with egg, put the decorations on, and cut a cross on top. 

Then bake it at 170-175 °C for about 35-40 minutes.

    Chocolate decorations

When baked, take it out and put it on the special grid for Panettone to be turned upside down so that it does not go flat. Ready to be cool and wrapped!
