What could be more Christmassy than a pudding made from everyone’s favourite food-gift panettone. It’s soaked in a creamy custard and baked for an unbelievably delicious dessert. This is the perfect dessert for anyone who isn’t a fan of the traditional Christmas pudding or just wants a simple, no fuss way to end a Christmas meal.
Be sure to save this recipe for later as it works even better with slightly stale panettone so it’s perfect if you have some to use up post-Christmas.
