Vegattone: a delicious freshly baked holiday panettone only for vegans!

A unique recipe for those who enjoy holiday meals in a healthier way

Holidays are a time when overeating, gaining weight and then feeling guilty is inevitable. Although we try to eat less and be more careful, we also like to enjoy those foods that, for some reason, we only allow ourselves during this time of year.

This is the case of panettone, a variety of sweet bread of Italian origin that creates addiction and is shared with family and friends. But not all panettones are healthy. Therefore, this recipe is ideal for those who want to take a little more care of their figure and their health. That is why it is called vegattone.

This recipe that yields 2 large units of approximately 700 grams.

Panettone is a classic in every Christmas and New Year´s table. In this case, we present an option for vegans: the vegattone.



• 400 grams of flour
• 30 grams of fresh yeast
• 200cc of water
• 125 grams of sugar
• 120 grams of vegan butter ointment or vegetable margarine or neutral oil
• 1 teaspoon of salt
• 90 grams of some neutral vegan yogurt or vanilla flavor
• orange and lemon zest

All the ingredients of this vegan alternative are carefully thought for the final product to be as healthy as possible.


• 100 g of flour 0000
• 110 gr of sugar
• 160 gr of yogurt
• 1/2 of salt
• 215 gr of vegan butter
• 1 tsp malt extract
• 1/2 of turmeric to give color
• 230 gr of sultana raisins (you can use the same amount in nuts, chocolate chips, or nothing)
• 150 grams of toasted walnuts


Mix the ingredients and knead to form a pre-dough, which we leave to rise to triple its volume (ideally for 10 hours at 24 degrees). Finally, we will incorporate the ingredients of the dough into the fermented sponge, adding the butter and the fruits as the last.

You don´t need to go to the bakery to get your vegattone. This is a homemade recipe that anyone can do.

Knead well and let it rest for 30 minutes. Divide the dough into two, roll, and place in the molds. Cover them and let them rise until the breadsticks out and protrudes from the edges of the liner.

Moisten the surface with vegetable milk and cook in a preheated 180-degree oven for about 30 minutes, its interior must exceed 90 degrees of temp. When it comes out of the oven let it cool and if you want you can make it an icing with powdered sugar and lemon juice.
