Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding with Marsala
In a way I'm very glad that the delectable Italian raisin and fruit bread, called Panettone, only comes in to the house at Christmas. I absolutely love it and keep taking sneaky slices. It makes a splendid festive version of bread and butter pudding, like this.
|400g panettone, cut into round slices 1.5cm thick|
|20g whole candied peel|
|175ml double cream|
|60g golden caster sugar|
|zest of 1 small lemon|
|4 eggs, beaten|
|½ whole nutmeg|
|Need help with conversions?|
|Equipment: A 1.5 litre baking dish, well buttered|
This recipe is from Delia's Happy Christmas
Begin by putting the raisins in a small saucepan with 50ml of the Marsala and bring them up to simmering point, then remove them from the heat then leave to soak and cool for about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.
Then butter the slices of panettone and cut each one into quarters measuring about 6cm (if you are using the small panettone, just halve them).
Now arrange a single layer of slightly overlapping slices in the prepared dish, saving all the nicest-looking pieces for the top.
Next drain the raisins and reserve the liquid.
Sprinkle half the raisins over the panettone, and all of the candied peel. Now arrange the remaining slices of panettone on top, overlapping them attractively so the crusts are prominent, then sprinkle with the remaining raisins.
Next, in a large glass jug (it will need to be more than 570ml), measure out the milk, double cream, the remaining 100ml Marsala and the Marsala juices from the raisins.
Now use a mini-whisk to whisk the caster sugar, lemon zest and beaten eggs. Then pour the whole lot over the panettone and grate the nutmeg over the top.
Pop the dish on a baking tray and bake for 50 minutes until the top is crisp and golden and the pudding is puffy and set in the centre.
Leave it out of the oven to settle for 10 minutes, then serve with some chilled pouring cream.

Chocolate lovers will be thrilled at this twist on an English favourite...it's even better if you keep it for a day or so before eating, served with chilled cream.
Born out of frugality (using up stale bread) this lovely pudding has, quite rightly, pushed itself to the top of the list when it comes to family favourites - and Delia's version is particuarly good.
Bread-and-butter pudding is one of the highlights of traditional cooking - and gives the family a cheap and filling finale to a meal. This version simply jazzes up an old favourite.
