Cheap Eats: Leftover Panettone Cake

Bonkers bread & butter panettone pudding tart
I know, it's a thing of  culinary excellence!

'Great, you got me a Panettone! Wonderful!'

But what exactly can you do with a Panettone? 

Italians enjoy it with sweet wine and hot tea or coffee, but despite the sweet bread elbowing it's way on to British Christmas tables too, it's still a bit of a white elephant. 

You can slice it, toast it, make bread and butter pudding, or you can scour the internet for something more interesting to do with it, just like we we did last Christmas. So this recipe is based on Jamie Oliver's Bonkers bread & butter panettone pudding tart and we liked it so much, my wife bought three loaves to make again throughout the year! Panettone sold in those fancy boxes usually have really long use by dates.

Here's how to make a Leftover Panettone Cake:

Here's what you'll need:

500g Panettone
Few spoonfuls of marmalade
5 eggs
300ml whole milk
300ml double cream
Half bar of dark chocolate
Teaspoon vanilla essence
125g butter
100g sugar, brown works best

Here's what to do:
Bonkers bread & butter panettone pudding tart
Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan.

Lightly grease a large cake or tart tin with butter or margarine and sprinkle over with a little sugar.
If you need a cake tin, Amazon have some great deals.

Slice half the panettone and arrange around the sides and bottom of the tin.

Next, we need to make custard. Heat the cream, milk, butter and vanilla essence gently for a few minutes until the butter has melted.

Whisk eggs with sugar for a couple of minutes then pour over the milk cream liquid.

Tear up the remaining panettone and leave soak in the custard for a few minutes.

Spoon the soaked bread and custard in the centre of the cake tin.

Top with broken up dark chocolate and spoonfuls of marmalade.

Bake in oven for 25 mins.

It's your recipe so feel free to add any sweet leftovers, such as a crumbled up mince pie, Christmas cake or pudding; drizzle some brandy or any booze over the slices of panettone.

It's great served warm with cream, or cold with ice cream and not only is it a great way to use up leftover panettone, it's a good alternate for anyone who doesn't like Christmas pudding.
