Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding

Posted By Kerri


We were given a panettone for Christmas which we’ve been enjoying but they’re rather large for two people and as it’s been open for a little while we thought we would try and use it up in a different way. The obligatory Christmas leftover recipes in magazines always suggest using it instead of bread in bread and butter pudding so that’s what we did.

It’s not really a recipe as such but here’s how we did it in case you want to do the same, this serves two:

Slice the panettone and cut so that it fits into your dish. Layer it up, pour over custard and leave for about 15 minutes so that the custard soaks into the panettone.

Sprinkle with sugar and then bake at 180 for about 45 minutes.

We left ours to cool so it went very firm but still retained a lovely buttery texture and vanilla flavour. I think it would be at its best served warm with lots of leftover custard.

    I love bread and butter pudding. I wish someone had given me a pannetone so that I had an excuse to make this version!
    It is good made with hot cross buns too.

    Antonia’s last blog post..Happy New Year!

    I’ll remember the hot cross bun tip for Easter, although I have already seen some in the shops!

    Hi!!! I have an important question: you say “leftover custard”…what kind of custard did you used??

  4. Kerri said,

    He Benedetta,

    That is an important question, I was really unclear about that in the post actually so will amend. Basically, I just mixed up some milk, cream and eggs and poured that over but any kind of custard (homemade or shop bought) would be fine I think.

  5. Looks amazing with that crispy top!

    Panettone makes the best ever bread and butter pudding. I am eating this now (virtually of course) whilst I type.

    Hi Kells, over the last few weeks I have been eating Bread Pudding bought from various bakeries near my work, all of which are different in texture, taste, content and looks. Do you think that can be the English dish for Wednesday???? (2 days for the bread to get stale)

    Yikes, I could give it a go but I don’t think mine would be a patch on the stuff mum makes. It’s a good idea though. Maybe give mum your stale bread for now (she is closer, after all!) and I’ll get her recipe and give it a go for next time I see you.

    i make mine with brown hot cross buns.. spread with a little apricot
    jam .. then grate some dark chocolate so it falls in between the layers /

    then soak in cream milk and eggs mixed with a little advakaat custard / which you can find a recipe for on the net. .. its easy ..

    sprinkle with brown sugar

    That’s a great idea, Ian. I saw hot cross buns at the supermarket earlier and I always end up buying too many so this would be a great way to use them up.
