You have probably also heard that the word “Panettone” really means “Pani di Toni” in Italian, which means “Toni’s bread”. Actually, that’s quite a true story. Panettone cake was created by an Italian baker, Toni, who lived in Milan.

Panettone became a great success story of a creative recipe because originally nothing turned out as he planned. Panettone cake was born thanks to Toni’s mistake after working so hard on Christmas Eve. Toni made, at the same time, a batch of bread and a cake dough, according to his boss’s request. Due to being too tired, he ended up adding the fruit for the cake in the bread dough and then he tried to fix the slip-up he made by adding candied fruit, butter and eggs to the recipe as well.

When he brought the “bread cake” to his boss, the last-minute creation amazed him and as you know, this was a hit across the city.

Since then, Panettone flavours have been created everywhere, which is why we have brought you our favourite. Today we bring you our  Panettone cake with grapes, which is a great idea for Christmas!

Filling ingredients:

  • Chocolate drops
  • 1 jar of condensed milk
  • Powdered milk
  • Grapes: 500g
  • 1 tbsp margarine

Doughs ingredients: 

  • 3 eggs
  • 120g sugar
  • 120g margarine
  • 250g water
  • 10g dry chemical yeast
  • 500g wheat flour 

Dough cooking instructions:

Whisk all the ingredients (excluding the flour) in a blender for two minutes. Then pour into a bowl and add the flour and mix thoroughly until the dough becomes quite uniform. Put the dough aside, cover with plastic wrap and leave to rest for 15 minutes.

Next add the chocolate drops, combine the dough and mould it. Once the dough is formed, grind the grapes and lay on top of the dough then bake for about 40 minutes at 180 °C or 356°F.

Let’s fill our Panettone! 

Put the margarine, condensed milk and the powdered milk in a saucepan and blend well until thickened and let it cool. Then mix the crushed grapes into the mixture. Once, you’ve done it, you can fill it and decorate your chocotone 😊.
