I know it’s a little late but Panettone makes me always happy. For those of you who aren’t familiar with panettone it is an rich Italian sweet bread prepared usually around Christmas time. The preparation of panettone takes a few days which involves a careful attention to details. I decided to make an easier version for you guys so you can enjoy this magic for the upcoming Shabbat dinner.

candied oranges

40 gr candied oranges

dried apricots

30 gr dried apricots

dried cranberries

20 gr dried cranberries

golden raisins

20 gr golden raisins

chocolate chips

30 gr chocolate chips

Step 6

Round the dough and place in a greased bowl covered with a towel. Let it rest until doubled in size.

Step 7

Divide as you like, I divided this beauty to 6 pieces of 150 gr each.

Step 8

Round each piece to a ball. Cover with a towel and let it sit for 10 min.

Step 9

Open the balls to strands and braid. Decorate the challah with more panettone toppings.

Step 10

Let her proof. You know it is ready to be baked when you touched the strands (gently!!!!!) and it bounced back slowly.

Step 11

Brush with egg yolk mixed with a sip of water. Don't make a pool of egg on the challah. Light Brushing. We don't want an omelette on our bread!

Step 12

Bake in a preheated oven to 380F or 190C for about 25 min. If the top of the challah gets brown to fast, cover the top with an aluminium foil. You know the challah is ready when the internal temperature reaches 190F or 95C.

Step 13

Once the challah is coming out from the oven, cover immedietly with a couple of towels. The towels will keep all the steam that is coming out from the hot challah which will result in a super soft crust.

Step 14

If you plan to eat it in the next few days- close in a plastic sealed bag once cooled down completely.

Step 15
