From Italy with Love
Panettone Bread Pudding

From Italy with Love<br> Panettone Bread Pudding
Panettone Bread Pudding from Due Forni of Austin, Texas

Panettone originated in Milan, Italy, and, much like fruitcake in the States, it’s a common gift throughout the holiday season all over Italy. So popular, in fact, that most households end up with multiple loaves. Panettone is a rich bread similar to a brioche, filled with eggs, butter, and just enough yeast to give it a light, ethereal texture then studded with raisins and candied citrus throughout to give a bit of extra sweetness. It is delicious eaten out of the box, or right out of the oven, but if you’re feeling adventurous, Panettone also serves as a base for a delicious bread pudding. Chef Allen Lewis of Due Forni in Austin, Texas has developed a recipe that is simple yet delicious making it an ideal dessert for your Christmas feast, or a quick weeknight dessert during the holiday season. At last, something to do with all those extra loaves!
