Panettone Christmas Bread for the Bread Machine

Original recipe from here...

3/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons yeast
1 cup chopped mixed candied fruit
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Add all ingredients in order giving except the fruit.

Add fruit as the dough starts to come together into a ball, a little before the "add in" beep if your machine has it.

The recipe recommends using the "Sweet Bread" and "Light Crust" settings. I used the "Basic" and "Light Crust" settings and the bread was still a little doughy in the middle. Next time I will either use the dough setting and bake it in the oven (would make two small loaves), or use the next setting on the machine which bakes it about 20 minutes longer.
