The notion of this marvellous Italian creation – panettone – going to waste is horrible! But in the weeks/months following Christmas this tends to happen. So if you have one that’s only been partially eaten or is drying up, this is what you can do with it 🙂 This is how you can revive a panettone!
You will need:
A whole or whatever is left of your panettone (the below values were used on 3/4 of one)
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chocolate bits
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven on 180 degrees C with fan.
Cut up the panettone roughly with your hands into large chunks and place them in a large, flat oven dish.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl.
Mix all the other ingredients with the eggs and pour the mixture over the panettone. It may seem like too little at first, but as you mix it up the panettone will start to soak up the fluids. Continue mixing until all your cake has been soaked with your mixture.
Bake for about 40 minutes until set and starting to brown at the edges.
