Lemon Bread (Panettone) and Butter Pudding



With one of my 2014 resolutions goals being to create less waste, I have been working towards using up everything in my fridge. On the whole, this has seen me spending most evenings eating, instead of consuming wine (another of my resolutions goals).  However, this less wasteful me has also discovered a delicious new recipe along the way, which I think you will LOVE!

Got any leftover Panettone lurking in the cupboard?

I have to admit that before Christmas 2013 I had never in my life seen or eaten Panettone. Where has it been all my life?!  This year we were given a loaf and as I wasn't quite sure how best to eat it, I decided to make a lemon bread and butter pudding.  Of course you can use just regular sliced bread too, for this recipe.

Ingredients:

Panettone loaf (or 6 slices of white bread)
Lemon Curd
Sultanas/Raisins
Small knob of butter
Caster sugar for sprinkling
4 egg yolks
3 ozs caster sugar
5 fl ozs milk
5 fl ozs double cream


  1. Slice your panettone, butter every slice and then spread with lemon curd.  Cut each slice into triangles.
  2. Grease your oven proof dish (about 30 x 20cms).
  3. Layer your panettone slices into the dish and sprinkle with sugar (if you're using plain sliced bread, sprinkle them with sultanas/raisins as well).
Make Custard:
  1. Whisk 4 egg yolks with the sugar.
  2. Simmer milk and double cream together in a saucepan over a low heat.
  3. Stir this into the egg mixture and pour on top of the bread.
  4. Bake in a bain marie (fill a larger dish with boiling water and sit your bread and butter pudding dish inside it.
  5. Put the whole lot into the oven and bake at 175 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until the top is browning.
  6. Finish off by sprinkling more sugar over the top and browning under a grill.


Such a wonderfully wintry pudding, perfect with a splash of cream or a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

  1. This looks perfect - I forgot to "serve" (i.e. open box) the panatone at Christmas what with the stampede for the best ones in the Roses tin and the mince pies, so I do indeed have one left in the cupboard, and lemon is my kids' favourite kind of cake. Thanks!

  11. I never liked bread and butter when I was younger except for the top slices that were crispy! This one looks and sounds delicious as I love panetone so I may just give this a go :)

  15. Mmm, bread and butter pudding, I always forget about that and it's perfect for winter. Plus I'm pretty sure no-one has ever finished their Christmas panettone, so the recipe is doubly genius!

  17. This looks absolutely delicious. I adore Pannatone (am amazed at how many people don't know about it) and find its also delicious toasted so that's another tip if its gone stale. However, it rarely gets a chance to get stale in our house! I'll add this one up my sleeve for when I'm wanting to do something unusual. THanks S x

  24. I never thought of that combination, but will try it for sure next time I have leftover Panettone! I love bread pudding, but usually I go for the chocolate ones. I have to try a lemon one!

  25. This does look very delicious. Love the resolutions too, hope to see what else you create when using up the items in your fridge :) It's definitely something we need to work harder at.

  26. that does look lovely but pannetone never last long in our house. We have been cooking our own last year and this year (nearly set fire to the house on new years day making one - but that's another story!) and the homemade ones get polished off even quicker. I do sometimes have leftover regular bread - so this is definitely one to try. xxx
