Description

Similar to panettone, another Italian classic, this cake is made with a yeast dough that has a subtle citrus flavor and dried fruit mixed in. Grated lemon zest and orange zest provides the citrus flavor, and plumped raisins are the dried fruit, though dried figs or dates would also work well in this recipe. The cake is meant to be sliced and dipped into vin Santo or other dessert wine, but is also good dolloped with whipped mascarpone cheese or creme fraiche.

Ingredients

300 grams all-purpose flour
100 grams sugar
40 grams butter (softened and cut into pieces)
2 eggs (medium, lightly beaten)
60 milliliters milk (warm)
10 grams yeast (brewer’s)
lemon peel (Grated, 1 of each)
salt
1 vin santo (shot glass, may substitute with a sweet dessert wine)
anise seed
raisins (soaked in some warm water)

Directions

1Dissolve the yeast in the milk.
2Combine the flour with the sugar, a pinch of salt, and the grated orange and lemon peel.
3Add the softened butter, the eggs, a handful of anise seeds, a handful of drained raisins, and the dessert wine.
4Knead the ingredients until the dough is smooth and uniform in consistency (if necessary, add more flour). Shape it into a ball.
5Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm area for approximately 2 hours.
6Knead the dough again with floured hands and shape it into a ring, place the ring of dough in a tube pan which has been buttered and floured.
7Let the dough rest again, in the pan in a warm area for approximately 1 hour.
8Preheat the oven to 180C and bake the cake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes.
9Serve the cake once it has cooled completely with cream or homemade jams, or dipped in Vin Santo.
