Chocolate Orange Panettone Pudding

As one traditional dessert, Bread and Butter Pudding, merges with another traditional Italian Christmas cake, magic is created! This warming dessert is what you need coming in from the cold, dark nights. It is made extra luxurious with the addition of orange marmalade (pulling on my Dundee roots) and dark chocolate chips, even those who don't usually favour a bread and butter pudding or panettone will enjoy this recipe!


50g butter

100g orange marmalade

250g panettone (whichever flavour you prefer - we've gone traditional in this one)

2 eggs

150ml double cream

200ml whole milk

1tsp vanilla extract

2tbsp caster sugar

100g dark chocolate chips

Icing sugar (for dusting)

  1. Heat the oven to 140c Fan

  2. Grease a shallow baking dish with 1tsp butter

  3. Cut the panettone into 1cm thick slices - keep the crusts on - and butter the sides with the remaining butter. Spread a thin layer of marmalade over the buttered sides

  4. Cut the slices in half and arrange in the baking dish buttered side up

  5. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, vanilla and sugar and pour over the panettone. Sprinkle over the chocolate chips

  6. Create a bain marie by sitting the baking dish in a deep roasting tray filled with 1 inch of hot water and put in the oven to bake for 35 minutes until the custard has set and nicely browned on top

  7. Dust with icing sugar before serving
