Recipe: Chocolate Panettone Pudding


This is one of the most comforting Christmassy desserts ever! And, better still, we constructed it using ingredients left over from our Xmas shoot. If you don't get too distracted by Mike in the background then you'll love it!


  • 250 ml double cream
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 4 extra egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium orange, zested
  • 1 small loaf panettone bread
  • 1 handful of fresh cranberries
  • few chunks of dark chocolate
  • few chunks of white chocolate

Step 1

Make The Custard

Crack the whole eggs into a bowl with the double cream, separate the other egg yolks and add those too. Whisk the eggs and cream together with the sugar, cinnamon and orange zest.

Step 2

Rip And Dunk The Bread

Rip up the bread into chunks and dunk in the cream mixture. Arrange those loosely into a smart serving baking dish fairly haphazard and scatter the chocolate and cranberries plus any leftover custard. Leave to soak and rest for half an hour at room temperature.

Step 3

Soak And Bake

Preheat an oven to 200ºC and bake the pudding for 20 minutes until slightly golden on top and set with with a slight wobble in the middle. Serve hot with lashing of cream.



Awesome looking dessert!


Recipe for 2 10cm ramekins. I only have a stove top and broiler (use for grilling fish with direct flame from upper corners, I try to make cream brulee with this broiler but it was a disaster) but somehow I can create bread pudding by myself. People are making bread pudding everywhere but I can't even taste a store-bought version. I finally make it after a few attempt, yay, so I want to share with you guys.


This was the least attractive but by far the tastiest dessert I made!


I don't think any words are needed to express the awesomeness of this desert!


Delicious and ever so slightly healthier version of the traditional bread pudding recipe
