Holiday Panettone Bread — Citrus Accents

GF Recipe Summary

Gluten-Free Holiday Panettone Bread — Citrus Accents: A sweet bread with dried fruit and nuts, plus accents of Orange, that makes a perfect holiday treat.

Panettone Breads have been a staple of the Christmas holiday season for centuries. Essentially a leavened fruit-cake, this bread has a flavorful mix of dried fruits, nuts, and citrus in a sweeter light bread. It is relatively simple to make since it uses baking powder for leavening (yeast for flavoring). This version is a couple inches thick (not quite as tall as some of the traditional cylindrical Panettone breads you may see, but it is more likely you will have a pan in which to bake it).
