Panettone French Toast.

Panettone is a sweet Italian bread filled with raisins and candied dehydrated fruits like papaya, guava, pineapple. It is usually found during Christmas time. You can simply enjoy a slice of panettone just by itself with a cup of coffee, but making panettone french toast just takes it to next level.. I am usually not a huge fan of french toasts, but I this one makes me drool!!

This simple, comforting breakfast is easy to make and simply delicious with just maple syrup, honey or fresh fruits. Enjoy!!


Serves: 2


  • 1 Large Egg
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp or Pinch of ground cinnamon or Pumpkin pie spice (optional)
  • Pinch of Sugar
  • Pinch of Chili Powder (optional)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 Slices of Panettone bread about 2″ thick
  • Butter for frying the French toast
  • Maple Syrup
  • Fresh berries

How To:

  • In a wide shallow bowl, beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, chili powder, and salt until combined.

  • Dip the slices of panettone bread in the bowl for few seconds turning to allow both sides to absorbs the egg mixture.
  • Preheat the skillet and add butter to it. Cook the soaked bread in the pan until golden brown on both sides about a minute on each side.

Serving suggestion:

  • Serve the french toast warm drizzled with Maple syrup or honey.
  • Top it with fresh berries and whipping cream.



  • Soak the bread for about 5 minutes if you like more soft creamy texture. Soaking the bread longer will give you more custard-like texture.
  • Panettone usually is sweet so you can skip adding sugar altogether, I use a bit for the caramelized color.
  • If you plan on serving french toasts later then preheat the oven to 200°F and transfer cooked french toasts onto the baking sheet. Cover them with foil if needed so that it stays moist.
