No worry, I still have many bread recipe for my next one to submit, hopefully I'll remember to submit it at least before THURSDAY!

I have been wanting to make Panettone for years, so last christmas, I was able to make it at home. As always, I had to check Susan @ Wild Yeast blog for reference. I found the recipe for the panettone that I've been looking for, and I had to try it right away. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to convert my starter to stater that required for this bread. So, I used my sourdough starter (also from her recipe) and add pinch of yeast (just incase). I've also tried to refer to some of my bread baking cookbooks, but managed to let myself stressed out and overwhelmed. Which was not good when you tried to bake anything.

Hang nicely with metal skewer, I also hung them up in my dinning room (like Susan) so, that my 2 golden retrievers wouldn't be tempted to sniff or even lick and eat them.
The bread had nice texture, very light but lack of "shreddy" (...ness) like the one that you normally get from a bakery. And also a bit on the drier side.
Regardless how they turned out, I was pretty proud and relieved that I was able to make this festive bread. Since this is my first trial, there will be the second, the third and so on.... until I am satisfied with the result. If you are tempted to make Panettone yourself, I'd like to recommend to visit Wild yeast blog for the recipe!
Responding to Cindy's questioned to Natalie about "Vegan Panettone", here is Natalie's link (click here) for the vegan version. Unfortunately the recipe is in Italy, but she will translate it if you let her know.
