In December we suggested that when your Italian friends gave you a panettone, there was a way to use it if you did not finish it. That would be to make bread pudding and we supplied a recipe.
We used a panettone we bought for the extravagant price of $35 from Sud Forno. Here is a pic of the result with friend Stephen Ledrew on the right holding a competing trifle, which he deliciously spiked with Cointreau. They were both delicious and we are looking for more stale panettone in order to duplicate our recipe.
