Pannetone Bread Pudding – Magnifico!

A great way to use up those left over pannetones that are lingering in the cupboard post Christmas!

Experiment with the different flavoured ones!!

A favourite of my daughter’s! Scrumptious!



50g butter
250g panettone (about 5 medium slices)
2 eggs
14oml  double cream
225ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp caster sugar
Icing sugar, for sprinkling -optional

You could serve with cream but it is really creamy enough!!


Preheat the oven to 160C / fan 140C and grease a 850ml/1½ pint shallow baking dish with a little butter.

Cut the panettone into wedges, leaving the crusts on. Butter the slices lightly with the rest of the butter. Cut the slices in half and arrange them in the dish, buttered side up.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, vanilla extract and sugar and pour evenly over the panettone.

Put the dish in a roasting tin and pour hot water around it to a depth of about 2.5cm/1in. Bake for 35 minutes until the pudding is just set – it should be yellow inside and nicely browned on top. Dust with icing sugar.

And enjoy!

  1. Hi Keith

    This looks absolutely yummy! But I didn’t buy any pannetone this year – would it work as well with brioche?

    PS. What a shame half term is over – so much still on my to do list!……

  2. Hi, Susan. I suggest you let the brioche go a little stale and hard before you use it as it tends to be softer than pannetore and may turn a little mushy otherwise! Thank you for popping by my site!
