    This my second year making this recipe. My old fashioned Italian parents loved it. It just needs a little tweeking. At my mothers suggestion, I substituted a product called "vanillina" powder for the vanilla extract. This is available in small packets and you will need 3 or 4 of them. This will produce the missing "aroma" that was mentioned in a previous review. It does rise too high in the machine so I always pull off a lump after the second rise ( a bit smaller than a tennis ball) and discard it or bake it in the oven as a small bun. I used dried (or candied) mixed peel as the fruit along with some golden raisins. This is what you often find in store bought panettone  -  30 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Terrific recipe! I added 1/4 tsp each of lemon extract and almond extract. I used golden and brown raisins and candied lemon peel.  -  23 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe came out great! I substituted fiori di sicilia (1/2 tsp.) for part of the vanilla for a more authentic flavor. This sure beats paying $10 for every loaf.  -  22 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
