This is a beautiful bread pudding perrrrrrrfect for the holidays :-) Enjoy!!!
- 12 ounces panettone, sliced into triangles
- 1⁄3 cup dried dates, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup pecans
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 1⁄4 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon light brown sugar
- grated nutmeg
- First take out a baking dish (4-cup baking dish) and heavily butter it.
- Then, arrange half of your panettone triangles in the dish overlapping them a bit.
- Scatter 1/2 of your nuts over the panettone and then evenly scatter your chopped dates.
- Then, place another layer of the panettone on top, overlapping them a bit.
- Heat your butter, milk, cream, and vanilla in a small saucepan just until simmering, remove from heat.
- Put the egg, maple syrup and honey in a large bowl and add freshly grated nutmeg.
- Next, whisk in the hot milk, making sure to whisk vigorously so as to keep the egg from cooking.
- At this point you will want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Pour your milk-egg mixture over the panettone layers, and lightly press down on the bread so that it is fully submerged in the liquid.
- Leave the panettone pudding aside for about 15-20 minutes to allow everything to soak up nicely.
- Take the rest of your pecans and sprinkle just a bit of water over them (JUST A BIT).
- Toss them in the sugar/cinnamon mixture, and toss them over the pudding.
- Sprinkle the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the dish (there wont be much).
- Grate a small amount of nutmeg over as well.
- Bake in your preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until it has risen and has a beautiful golden color.
We loved this, and it was so enjoyed!
Excellent bread and butter pudding- the dates add a lovely toffee sweetness. 30 minutes was sufficient to cook this thoroughly, too. Worth buying a panettone for!
Okay, I died and went to heaven when I tasted this delicious bread pudding. I had a couple of panettone hanging around after Christmas and decided to make a bread pudding with one. Your recipe sounded the best and let me tell you I was not dissappointed! Easily done and the taste is fabulous! Mine only took half an hour for some reason to bake. Good thing I checked it early or I would have burnt it. Thanks for a fantastic recipe. I can't wait for next year now so I can make this taste treat again!
