This my second year making this recipe. My old fashioned Italian parents loved it. It just needs a little tweeking. At my mothers suggestion, I substituted a product called "vanillina" powder for the vanilla extract. This is available in small packets and you will need 3 or 4 of them. This will produce the missing "aroma" that was mentioned in a previous review. It does rise too high in the machine so I always pull off a lump after the second rise ( a bit smaller than a tennis ball) and discard it or bake it in the oven as a small bun. I used dried (or candied) mixed peel as the fruit along with some golden raisins. This is what you often find in store bought panettone

I did not care for this recipe.I have to say, I use my bread machine all the time so nothing went wrong with that. This bread is nothing like Panettone, it's not sweet at all and the amount of dried fruit does not even come close. Mine tasted salty.

Terrific recipe! I added 1/4 tsp each of lemon extract and almond extract. I used golden and brown raisins and candied lemon peel.

This recipe came out great! I substituted fiori di sicilia (1/2 tsp.) for part of the vanilla for a more authentic flavor. This sure beats paying $10 for every loaf.

Really easy to make and really good. Not at all heavy. I add 3 cups flour to the bread machine then toss 3/4 cup drained, candied mixed fruit and 1/4 cup raisins with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour. I have a large (3 lb) bread machine, so it handles the added fruit without any problems. Then I slice the bread thin and toast it.

Very good with or without the dried fruit.

Great bread! I made the dough in the bread machine then divided it and baked in a mini-loaf pans. I freeze all but 2 or 3 of the minis so I can take them out when I need them and do not go stale. My kids loved this bread too! I used some to make mini loaf sandwiches (a little pb and applebutter) for their lunches, a huge hit! I have a feeling I will be making this often...
