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!!
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
