1tsp.dry active yeast
Rinse raisins and candied fruit under warm water. Cover it with brandy and leave for 4 hours.
Heat milk until warm (do not let it boil). Add active dry yeast and a teaspoon of sugar. Nicely whisk the mixture until sugar dissolves and set it aside for 5 to 10 minutes for the yeast to start reacting.
Beat in two eggs and add sugar, pour vegetable oil. Thoroughly whisk the mixture using a mixer. Add vanilla sugar and lemon zest for extra flavor.
Sieve all the flour and combine it with salt. Start adding flour to the main mixture by bunches and at the same time whisking the dough. Use low speed at first and then keep it increasing until the dough thickens.
Add butter and knead the dough.
Drain brandy from raisins and fruit. Add them to the dough.
Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge for 7 to 8 hours.
After refrigerating the dough, knead the dough with your hands and form a ball. Put the ball into a baking form and let it sit for 2-3 hours in a warm place. The dough should rise in the end.
Preheat oven at 350ºF/180°C.
Whisk an egg yolk, add milk, and smear with this mixture on the top of the dough.
Bake Panettone for 20 minutes. Then lower the heat to 300ºF/150°C and bake for another 20-30 minutes. You always can check the pastry for doneness with a wooden skewer. If the top starts burning, transport the form to the lower rack of the oven. Before serving let the Panettone cool down a bit!
