This delicious Italian holiday bread has all of the flavors and aromas of traditional panettone but with none of the gluten.

Gluten Free Panettone Recipe
Making gluten free panettone at home requires only a few simple changes to the traditional recipe! Start by replacing the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten free flour blend. We recommend using Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour for best results. You’ll also need to use xanthan gum as an additional binder in place of wheat gluten since there isn’t any present in the gluten free flour blend. If you don’t have xanthan gum on hand, you can substitute agar powder or chia seeds instead!
The rest of the recipe is similar to traditional panettone – just add eggs, butter, sugar and dried fruit like raisins or currants to your batter before baking in the oven at 350°F until golden brown. When finished baking, let cool before cutting into slices or serving warm with honey or jam!
Aromatic and Flavorful Ingredients
The secret behind this gluten free panettone is in its ingredients. The recipe calls for light brown sugar, honey, raisins, orange peel, butter, milk, cornstarch, tapioca starch and nonfat dry milk powder which all combine to create an aromatic blend of flavors that will tantalize your taste buds. The combination of sweet and zesty notes make this bread a wonderful accompaniment to any meal or snack. Plus, it’s easy to make with minimal fuss!
Moist Crumb and Golden Crust
When it comes to texture and appearance, gluten free panettone does not disappoint. The dough is soft yet firm enough to hold its shape when baked. As the bread cooks in the oven it creates a beautiful golden-brown crust on top that adds just the right amount of crunch when you bite into it. Inside is an ultra-moist crumb that holds itself together nicely as you eat it – no crumbling mess here!
How To Make It
Making gluten free panettone is easier than you think. All you need are a few simple ingredients like almond flour (or other nut flours) instead of regular wheat flour; dairy-free butter substitutes such as coconut oil; and egg replacers like chia seeds or flax meal mixed with water. You can find these items at most grocery stores or online if necessary. Once you have all the ingredients ready to go simply mix them together in a bowl until they’re just combined – don’t overmix! – then spoon into greased pans and bake according to instructions on the package for a delicious treat everyone can enjoy this holiday season!
Gluten free panettone offers an aromatic blend of flavors for those who cannot eat traditional wheat breads during the holidays. With light brown sugar, honey, raisins and orange peel among other scrumptious ingredients in each bite, this moist Italian bread will be sure to please even picky palates with its sweetness and zestiness alike.
