Scrape the dough into the oiled bowl and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm, draught-free place to rise until nearly double in bulk, about 2 hours. Return the dough to the bowl of the stand mixer and fit the mixer with the dough hook. Drain the macerated fruit and add to the dough. Beat on low speed for several seconds, until the fruit is well mixed with the dough. Place a disposable 6-by-4-inch paper panettone mold on a cookie sheet. Carefully scrape the dough into the mold.
