Description

This flat, yet airy, panettone contains familiar ingredients — raisins, pine nuts, candied fruit — though it forgoes the yeast and cupola shape typical of the Christmas cake. Rum is incorporated into the batter for a kick. It should be cooled completely before serving. Store, well-wrapped, at room temperaturefor up to a week. It can also be tightly wrapped and frozen for up to a month.

Ingredients

200 grams butter (at room temperature)
150 grams cookies (plain, ground finely)
100 grams cocoa (bittersweet, powdered)
150 grams powdered sugar
1 teaspoon finely ground coffee
150 grams dark chocolate
50 grams heavy cream
rum
coconut flakes

Directions

1Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler with the heavy cream and let the mixture cool slightly.
2Cream the butter with the sugar until light and foamy.
3Add the ground cookies, bittersweet cocoa, and ground coffee.
4Add the melted dark chocolate and heavy cream mixture.
5Add a few drops of rum.
6Combine the ingredients until smooth, uniform, and firm in consistency.
