Pannetone is a delicious, fruit-studded Italian bread that makes a wonderful Christmas gift, but you may have ended up with more than your fair share this holiday season. If you’re looking for ways to use up this tasty loaf, festive French toast may be in your future.

The above video has all the details, but panettone French toast is made much the same way you would make regular French toast, with one caveat. Due to its soft, slightly fragile nature, soaking the bread in batter is a recipe for breakfast disaster, so just give it a quick dip before frying it up in copious amounts of butter and (hopefully) topping with whipped cream.

Panettone French Toast [Tasting Table]


  • Panettone is a terrible. It’s dry and kind of like eating cardboard. I’ve got no idea how this became so prevalent around Xmas but is probably one of the most regifted things ever.

    • You haven’t had good Panettone then. It shouldn’t be dry. Also it’s not meant to be served on its own, best with marscapone or cream and a bit of Amaretto and enjoyed with a sweet Dessert wine.
