10-12 slices of panettone
3 large eggs
50g of unsalted butter
250ml of whole milk

Almond, Honey & Ricotta Eggy Bread Panettone

Serves
4
Total Time
15 Minutes
Ingredients
2 thick slices of panettone
1 whole egg
75g of ground almonds
75g of salted butter
125g of ricotta cheese
10g of honey
25g of chopped almonds
Method
Step 1
Slice 2 thick pieces of panettone and place to one side.
Step 2
In a bowl using a fork whisk the egg well and on a separate plate scatter the ground almonds. Dip the panettone slices in the egg and coat well, then place into the ground almonds pressing firmly on both sides to make sure the almonds have stuck. Repeat this process for both the panettone pieces.
Step 3
Next, take a saucepan and heat it up on a low to medium heat. Once the pan is heated, drizzle in a tablespoon of oil (any oil will do as this is to help prevent the butter from burning). Add in 50g of the butter and melt, once melted add in the almond coated panettone slices and fry until golden brown on one side.
Step 4
Once golden brown, carefully flip over the panettone and cook the other side, adding in the remaining 25g of butter around the pan. Once golden brown on both sides, remove from the heat and drain on kitchen paper to absorb any excess butter.
Step 5
Place on a serving plate and drizzle with honey, top with creamy ricotta cheese and sprinkle over crunchy roasted chopped almonds.

Pear & Chocolate Panettone Tiramisu

Serves
3
Total Time
1 Hour
Ingredients
1 large egg, separated
30g of caster sugar
15ml of marsala wine
250g of mascarpone cheese
150g of leftover pear & chocolate panettone
120ml of espresso coffee
25g of chopped hazelnuts
25g of dark chocolate
Method
Step 1
To start, heat some water to a gentle simmer in a saucepan and find a bowl that fits comfortably on top. In the bowl place inside the separated egg yolk and 15g of the caster sugar, whisk together well. Place the bowl over the simmering water and whisk until thick and glossy, this will take less than 5 minutes. You will see a gradual change to the texture within a few minutes – this is called a zabaione. Once thick and glossy, remove the bowl from the heat and whisk in the marsala wine and leave to the side.
Step 2
While the zabaione cools, using an electric mixer whisk up the egg whites. Start at the slowest speed and whisk until the egg whites are white and fluffy. Then sprinkle in the remaining caster sugar and whisk until glossy and slightly firm.
Step 3
Once the zabaione is cooled add a third of the mascarpone into the cooked egg yolk mixture and beat in well using the eclectic mixer; repeat this 3 times to use all the mascarpone. The mix should be lovely and creamy with no lumps.
Step 4
Take a third of the whisked-up egg whites and beat into the zabaione and mascarpone mix to introduce the egg whites. Then take another third and gently fold in the egg whites and repeat this for the final third.
Step 5
To assemble, soak the panettone in the coffee in a separate bowl. Take your serving dish and place 1⅓ slices of the soaked panettone inside to cover the base completely. Spread half of the finished zabaione mixture into the serving dish and cover the soaked panettone well. Repeat this process 1 more time.
Step 6
Leave to set in the fridge for up to 3 hours or even overnight, keeping it well covered.
