Chocolate and cherry panettone


Welcome to Day 12 of the 12 days of Christmas on Ellie Bakes, where I will be sharing a festive recipe every day until Christmas Eve. I think Christmas is the best time of the year for baking, and I have lots of great recipes to share!

These individual panettone are the perfect Christmas morning breakfast! They can be made the day before and then reheated in the microwave. They are perfect served with a Chai Latte while opening presents!

So this is the last day of the 12 days of Christmas on the blog, Thankyou everyone for reading, it has been so much fun. Merry Christmas!


Chocolate and cherry panettone:

For the dough:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 120ml warm milk
  • 2 tbsp. fast action yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks

For the Second proving:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 165g soft butter
  • 80g caster sugar
  • Zest 1 orange

To add before shaping:

  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 100g dried cherries
  1. Mix the first batch of ingredients together to make a smooth mixture, then cover with clingfilm and leave to prove for half an hour.
  2. After half an hour, add the second lot of ingredients and stir until combined, then tip out onto the surface and knead for 10 minutes. It will be very sticky to start with, but should get less so as you knead it!
  3. Leave to prove for 2 hours until doubled in size.
  4. Once it has proved, knead in the chocolate and cherries until well distributed,  then divide into 12 pieces (should be 100g for each piece if you’re being precise!) and put into the tin.
  5. Leave to prove for 2 hours, then bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 10 minutes. When cooked, turn out onto a board, remove the paper and cover with a tea towel.
