Panettone Bread Pudding

Sometimes I get obsessed with making a certain kind of food. This past year I got obsessed with: bread pudding, rice pudding and risotto. Which are all creamy in texture…so I guess I'm a creamy person.

Whatever that means.

Although obsessions die down, mine never totally go away. And here's the thing about bread pudding, it is totally acceptable as a breakfast or dessert. Any dessert that can pretend to be a meal is ok in my book.

I was being a bit naughty when I made this Panettone bread pudding…

Before we get to the terrible-ness, this is Panettone. Sometimes it comes in a little box like this. My grandmother gave me this one. So…um…you need one of these if you want to make this. It's specific. I mean, I put the word "Panettone" in the recipe title, so you can't say you didn't see this coming.

Other ingredients you need: 1 stick of butter, 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk…

…oh, and 1 cup of heavy whipping cream. Yes, you read that right. I KNOW. Genius or evil? Answer: both.

I only used 3/4 of the loaf I had. I'm a waster of food.

Cube the bread and place in a square baking dish. In a bowl mix together eggs, whipping cream (YES!), milk, vanilla and sugar. Melt the butter and allow to cool before adding. Once you stir in the butter then pour the mixture over the bread cubes. Try and make sure they all get their fair share. Then bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes. Cover the baking dish with foil for the first 20 minutes and then remove foil for the remaining 5-10 minutes.

If you remove your foil for the last 15 minutes, you will get some crispy pieces like I did. Oops.

The good news: still one of the best bread puddings I've ever had.


Excuse me, I really need to go for a jog now.

oh my.
I HATE panettone bread, but this… this looks veeery convincing, even with that whole cup of heavy cream. Maybe I’ll give panettone another chance ;)
