Method
Pre.heat your oven to 400 deg.Beat butter & sugar till smooth.Add the essence,egg,egg yolk & beat it for another 2 minutes.Now add the flour & the poolish knead it well.As i don't have a stand mixer i used my kitchen counter top to knead the dough.After kneading well add the soaked fruit mixture,orange & lemon zest.
Dust your kitchen counter top ,using your hand knead the dough to make sure the fruits are well incorporated.Cover it & rest it for 2 & 1/2 hours in a warm place until it doubles in size.Take the dough & put it into the prepared pans,press it well & leave it to ferment again for 1 hour.
As i don't have a panettone pan,i used my regular round cake pan lined it with a parchment paper both bottom & sides.The parchment paper on the side portion was a bit higher than the Pan's brim because the dough will rise above the pan while fermenting.
Make a X mark on top of the bread & place a very small cube of butter at the middle.Now bake the dough at 400 deg. for 20 minutes,then reduce the temperature to 350 deg bake for 10 minutes.Place a foil loosely on top of the bread & bake it for 20 minutes.
Each oven temperature varies,make sure you don't burn.Bread is done if your tooth pick inserted in the middle & comes out clean.
Remove from oven cool completely & then cut.
