A buttery, crispy and soft Panettone bread and butter pudding with citrus tones that will melt your heart with every mouthful.
We decided to visit my father in law and partner the other weekend and as we had not seen them for a while we participated in exchanging late Christmas gifts. From us, we gave our usual Christmas hamper full of delightful homemade chutneys and the like.
We also received some delightful foods. One of these foods was the classic Italian Christmas bread, Panettone.
It was quite a large one too at 1 Kg. Now the question is what do you do with a 1 Kg Panettone? I can think of plenty but the one that really came to mind was bread and butter pudding. A classic British pudding.
With the Panettone already very sweet and full of succulent raisins, a hint of citrus it did not take much to really bring this dish together.
This dish once cooked brought with it a buttery, crispy soft bread, and butter pudding with citrus tones coming from the added orange zest and juice.
One of the best parts to look forward to when making this pudding is when you remove it from the oven and have that beautiful wobble of just set custard. You know it is going to be such a delight to eat.
Serve it with cream or a lovely custard and you will be smiling ear to ear and if you want more have it cold anytime and reap the delights of such a great classic pudding with an Italian twist.
