There is something festive about the puffed dome of Panettone bread. And what’s better on a Holiday morning, than a delicious bread pudding made of Panettone? Now, I’ve made them in the past and even posted one before, but this one is different because I used a Chocottone! I came across Chocottone in an Italian grocery store, which is basically a Panettone made with milk chocolate instead of raisins and fruit. I immediately knew that I had to make a bread pudding with it for my kids. So that’s exactly what I did! It turned out awesome, it was fluffy with the perfect amount of sweet! The boys loved it, and it was quite the treat for breakfast on an uneventful Thursday morning too! haha
Get The Recipe
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 loaf of Panettone cut into 1 inch cubes
- 8 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- Butter to grease pan
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 9×13 pan and arrange the bread cubes in the dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together your eggs, whipping cream, milk, and sugar until blended.
Pour the custard over the bread cubes and push down with spoon to submerge. Let stand for 30 minutes, occasionally pushing the bread into the custard. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until set in the center.
When it first comes out of the oven it will be puffed up, as it cools it will fall.
Top it with syrup or eat it plain, either way it’s delicious! A perfect dish to serve for your Holiday brunch or Christmas morning. Bon Appetito!
Have A Safe and Happy Holiday!
