With a little patience (this bread takes about 16 hours from start to finish), a sturdy mixer, and a few gluten-free flours, homemade gluten-free panettone is fairly easy.
My original recipe made a classic skillet cornbread, gluten-free, of course. After taking a look at it, I decided to swap out a couple of ingredients: brown butter replaced flavorless vegetable oil, and brown rice flour replaced white rice flour. I thought the brown butter's nutty-caramel flavor called for just a touch of sweetness, so I added a little maple syrup.
One day I received an email from Rosie. She told me that while she didn't consider herself a baker, she always baked pumpkin bread for her family. This bread became an integral part of her family life. Although she was coping well with her celiac diagnosis, she really missed the pumpkin bread—as did the rest of her family. After a little tinkering in the kitchen, I created a gluten-free version of Rosie's spicy, sweet bread. Here's that recipe.
