Panettone French Toast

‘Tis the season, for panettone. If you haven’t had panettone you don’t know what you are missing. Billed as an Italian Speciality Cake, panettone to me is more of a bread than a cake. It is very light textured, fragrant and studded with raisins and candied citrus. The brightly colored boxes containing panettone usually start appearing in the stores between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don’t know the brands I like the best but you can’t go wrong with the one in the blue box or this one wrapped in red.

To start open the box and remove the cake from it’s plastic wrapper.

I cut through the paper and the cake, removing only what I plan to use and keep the rest wrapped for freshness.

I decided to make French toast with my panettone this morning. I was delicious too. Here’s my recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 thick slices of panettone
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 2 drops fiori di Sicilia (see note) optional but oh, so good
  • 2 TBS Butter
  • Powdered sugar and syrup for garnish

Cooking Note: Fiori di Sicilia is a combination of citrus and vanilla with a pleasingly floral aroma sold exclusive at King Arthur Flour. You can read about it HERE.

DIRECTIONS:

Slice your bread into three thick slices.

Break the eggs into a shallow bowl. Add the half and half and Fiori de Sicilia and stir to mix.

Place the butter in a non-stick pan on medium heat. Be careful not to let the butter burn. Place the bread into the egg mixture and coat ob all sides. Don’t leave the bread in the egg too long as it make be soggy when cooked. Remove the bread and place in the heated pan.

Cook the French toast on both sides until golden brown.

Remove from pan. Garnish with butter, syrup, and powdered sugar. Feeds one really hungry person or two not so hungry people.

Oh yum.
