This Christmas, I have prepared 3 bakes;
2.Chocolate Pecan Pie
3.Zimtsterne : A Traditional German almond cookie
1. I first prepared my starter of flour ,yeast and milk.
2.When the starter doubled its volume, it was mixed in the mixer with the rest of the ingredients;
namely flour, butter, eggs and dried fruit mix.
I have cranberries, citrus peels, sultanas and raisins in my dried fruit mix.
3.The dough was then kneaded and shaped. It was then placed in a bowl and left to proof til double its volume.
4.It was then taken out of the bowl, kneaded and then transfered into the Panettone mold. It was left to proof til double its volume again and/or when dough rise to the brim of the mold.
5.The dough had doubled its volume again and rise to the brim of the mold.
7.When it was taken out of the oven, I used two metal skewers and pierced all the way through the panettone and hang it up side down to completely cool it.
Very happy with the bake.
