Recipe — Maple Spice Mini Panettones
10 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, partially cooled
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 3/8 cup maple sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of ground ginger
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup maple taffy


  1. Pour the warm water into a large bowl, add the yeast and maple syrup and let stand for about 10 minutes or until foam appears on the surface.
  2. In another bowl, vigorously beat together the eggs, butter, milk, maple sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir into the yeast mixture.
  3. In a third bowl, combine half of the flour and the spices. Stir the flour mixture into the batter. Now gradually add the rest of the flour, a little at a time, until you obtain a soft dough that is no longer sticky.
  4. On a work surface dusted with flour, gently knead the dough to develop some elasticity and shape it into a ball.
  5. Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a damp towel and let rise for 1 hour in a warm place.
  6. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to release the air bubbles.
  7. Preheat the oven to 200 ºC (400 ºF). Form the dough into ten small balls. Place them in buttered cups.
  8. Cover and let rise for 15 to 30 minutes, until they have doubled in size in the cups. Brush the balls with the beaten egg.
  9. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool on a rack lined with waxed paper.
  10. Cover the cups with plastic wrap and place in the freezer.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
