Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding with Vanilla and Chocolate

Vanilla Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding is a sumptuous celebratory twist on a classic British pudding. The rich but airy Italian festive bread is full of delicious Christmas flavours. I've added fabulous, fragrant vanilla and decadent chocolate for the most indulgent pudding of the season.

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time40 mins


  • 300 g panettone
  • 50 g butter
  • 150 ml cream
  • 150 ml milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract - or tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 eggs - medium/large
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips - optional
  • 2 tsp icing sugar


  • Put the oven on to 180C / 170C fan / Gas 4
    Cut the panettone into 2.5 cm / 1" cubes.
    300 g panettone
  • Melt the butter and then use a pastry brush to butter a deep baking dish. Choose a dish that is about 6" x 8".Next, arrange the cubes of panettone in the dish.
    50 g butter
  • Put the cream, milk, vanilla extract, eggs and sugar into a bowl. Whisk lightly with a fork to break up the eggs and combine the ingredients. You don't need to work too hard at this!
    150 ml cream, 150 ml milk, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp sugar
  • Pour the custard mixture over the panettone. Take care to drizzle it evenly over the panettone.
  • Use the back of a spoon to lightly press the cubes into the liquid so they absorb it. Do this as gently as possible, because you want them to spring back up. Don't squash them!
  • Scatter the chocolate chips over the panettone. Now drizzle the remaining melted butter over any of the bread that is not submerged in the custard mix.
    2 tbsp chocolate chips
  • Pop into the oven and bake for 35 minutes. When the pudding is ready, it will be fluffy and golden, with the custard set.
  • Allow your bread and butter pudding to cool a little before you serve. Dust it lightly with icing sugar for a final flourish.
    2 tsp icing sugar
