Chocolate orange panettone bread pudding

I did not expect to be blogging a recipe for leftover panettone in February, but I had 3 mini boxes of the Italian sweet bread to use up after finding them reduced in my local co-op to 25p each. I couldn’t leave a bargain like that sitting on the shelf so I took them home 🙂

This chocolate orange bread pudding is a rather delicious way of using up leftover panettone, but it would be equally as good with brioche. 
Chocolate orange panettone bread pudding

Adapted from Nigella Lawson’s chocolate chip bread pudding from “Kitchen”

250g chocolate panettone or brioche, cut into 3-4cm cubes

100g chocolate chips

Zest of one large orange

3 large eggs

40g caster sugar

125ml double cream

500ml full fat milk

4 tsp demerara sugar

Preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly butter an ovenproof dish with butter. 

Arrange the bread in the dish. Scatter over the chocolate chips and orange zest.

Whisk together the eggs, sugar cream and milk. Pour this over the bread. Leave to soak for around 20 minutes, then sprinkle over the demerara sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the custard has set and has a slight wobble. 

This pudding is pure comfort food! I think we all need a little comfort in these current times.  So once you’ve made this, all that’s left to do is curl up on the couch with a blanket, a good movie or book and enjoy 🙂 

I shared this recipe with Recipe of the week link up over at A Mummy too.
