Did you get a Panettone as a gift this year? It's a pretty popular gift these days at Christmas, but until a couple of years ago, I had never really come across one, never mind eaten one.

This sweet, enriched bread, full of dried fruit, has been made in Italy since the middle ages and has grown in popularity throughout Europe in recent years. Did you know that Panettone are hung upside down when baked, so that their dome shape doesn't get cracked and spoilt? No- me either! 

To enjoy Panettone traditionally, you slice it like a cake and serve with butter and/or jam to spread on top and have with coffee. Alternatively, you can tilt it sideways and slice circles from the end so that they will fit in the toaster. Apparently, it's amazing toasted but I haven't tried that yet.

The only problem with Panettone is that they are quite large, especially if there's just two of you, and if you are lucky enough to be given more than one, they can be quite hard to finish off before they dry out or hit their use by date. So, what to do with some delicious left-over Panettone? Make bread and butter pudding of course! And to make it even more delicious, I add chocolate chips- mmmmm!

Panettone makes a fantastic bread and butter pudding. It works very well with this recipe which uses full cream but, if you're trying to be a bit less indulgent post-Christmas, you can switch it for a milk of your choice.

If you make my Choc-Chip Panettone pudding, you won't be disappointed; it's rich, chocolatey and delicious. I like it on its own, as it's essentially cooked in its own custard, but my husband likes to add more custard to his. I'm pretty sure it would be fab with ice-cream too!
