Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/gas 3/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.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, vanilla extract and sugar and pour evenly over the panettone.
  3. 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 serve with spoonfuls of whipped cream.

I made this with chocolate chip brioche and the texture and lightness were absolutely heavenly, but I thought overall the dish was slightly not sweet enough (and I never say that!) so I think I would add a bit more sugar next time.

Used currant buns as needed to use them up. Was so easy and really tasty. Will definitely use this recipe again.

This recipe was delicious but I had to double the quantity of custard. When I poured in the recommended amount it barely covered half of the bread, but doubling it the pudding was just perfect, moist at the bottom and crispy at the top. I also used sliced brioche loaf and raisins instead of panettone and it was great. Very popular with the family!

Fantastic pudding, loved it!!! Surprisingly light but still feels like a real comfort food. I will definitely be making again.

great recipe as it stands, but lends itself to a little creative interpretation! Using duck eggs makes it outrageously rich but delicious (although you can actually hear your arteries clanging as you eat it), as does adding a small dash of amaretto to the bread as it soaks. I tend to use quite a bit of nutmeg in my custard too, but no sugar, as it does tend to be very sweet.
You can't really lose with this recipe!

I couldn't find panettone and was rushed for time so made this with brioche - it was superb and everyone really enjoyed!

I made this using a panettone that had chocolate sauce in it and topped in chocolate. The end result was amazing! Would like to make it again using a fruit panettone, I think it would work really well. Although the pudding was very rich it remained light and very moreish!

I made this today and it was delicious. I made a slighlty bigger version and just added extra cream and another egg. Oh, and some grated orange zest.
The pudding was lighter than I expected - really worth making and would definitely do again.

I made this for my other half (he gets to eat the whole thing because I can't eat wheat) - he's almost finished the first one and is now nagging me to make a second one with the left over panettone!! I added large chunks of dark chocolate to it and apparently this made it perfect!! And so easy to make!!

Delicious! As per other users I reduced the amount of sugar and I only had about 50ml of cream so just made it up with the milk. It still tasted lovely. I also added about 30g of 70% chocolate broken up. Definitely reccomend trying it.

I made this the day before to take to my Moms for a New Years day lunch, a little nervous how it would taste re-heated but it was delicious such a light pudding and glad that I omitted the sugar as it was sweet enough, a friend ate and enjoyed it who doesn`t usually eat puddings so a huge success, will definitely be cooking this again!

This is absolutely yummy. I added a good handful of whisky soaked large raisins (2 tablespoons whisky soaked for 4 hours)plus the remaining whisky. You could also use brandy. I also made sure the custard had not set too much coz it's better with runny custard.

I scaled this down for 2 people & it was great! Hubby bought a panettone especially for this recipe, & we'll definitely be having it again over Christmas! Really fruity & with grated nutmeg on the top - yum!

I changed this recipe quite a bit. I added a bit more cream as I think I had a tad more panettone, and I also added fresh vanilla as well as the vanilla extract, then I broke some cinnamon sticks and fresh cloves and let the custard infuse for a little while. I only buttered the dish, not the slices of panettone. I sprinkled some chopped pistachios on top, sliced figs, poured the custard over, and the sprinkled brown sugar over the top so that it got a nice crust. I didn't have a dish big enough to put that one in for the water bath, so I just put a separate dish at the bottom of the oven for the steam. It was delicious!!

This was really good but I must say much better reheated on the second day, as it really brought out the flavours. Easy and delicious
