Eggnog Panettone Bread Pudding

What to do with your leftover Panettone? I used mine in an eggnog flavored bread pudding and voila, Brunch was ready!

The nutmeg flavored eggnog bread pudding is cooked in muffin tins in a water bath in the oven. The individual servings make for a very nice presentation. The bread pudding may be served warm or cold with Vanilla Ice cream or whipped cream.

Yield: 12 servings.


* 5 cups panettone, cubed
* 3 whole eggs
* 3 egg yolks
* 3/4 cups sugar
* 2 cups half-and-half
* 1/4 cup rum
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
* Vegetable cooking spray


Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Place a tea-kettle of water on to boil for a water bath.  Reserve the cubed panettone in a large mixing bowl.

For the eggnog custard, in another bowl thoroughly whisk together the eggs, yolks, sugar, half and half, rum, vanilla extract, and a healthy grating of fresh nutmeg. Pour this over the bread cubes.

Spray a 12 hole muffin tin with vegetable cooking spray. Ladle the bread/eggnog mixture gently and evenly into the muffin tins. The big cubes sticking up look nice. Place the filled muffin tin in a tall sided cookie sheet or roasting pan. Transfer to the preheated oven and carefully pour the hot water from kettle onto sheet pan, creating a water bath for the muffin tin to sit in.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes until the tops are nicely browned, and a toothpick comes clean from the center.

Hello German Bakemaster (smile), these look delicious! I love sweets like this-so old school and wholesome. Very nice…
Hope you have a happy new year, Kirsten.

Oh, I love bread pudding made with pannetone and usually buy several after Christmas when they go on sale just for this purpose. Baking individual puddings is a lovely way to do it.

I've just been given some Pannetone – and have a weakness for custard. This is ideal.

This is a lovely way to used up the leftover Pannetone. I love to see another delicious dish being created from the leftover, I always feel good afterward because nothing goes to waste! This is really nice!

Kirsten-What a lovely bread pudding, made with the leftover Pannetone. I can't say I will try this recipe, which is so yummy, because in our household we all love it, and have it with coffie or tea, so there's never any left over!

Alas…had no stollen, eggnog or panetonne. Can we still be friends?

Wishing I had and now wishing I had leftovers. Yum!

Such great photos! Our leftover panettone is also ear marked for a bread and butter pudding, I can only hope the end result looks half as good as these!

What a great combo! I would have never thought of it! I have no left-over anything, but I'll add panettone to the grocery list!

I can only imagine how delicious this bread pudding must have been. This would be a great company brunch dish.

Sorry, Carlos. We had so much Stollen and cookies that the Panettone got a little left behind.

Leftover Pannetone? "What'chu talkin' about, Willis? LOL in our house there is no such thing as leftover Panettone.

What a wonderful idea! As always, beautiful shots Kirsten. I love the muffin tin single servings.

This sounds very good. As much as I looked forward to 'egg nog' season, I'm ready now to bid it adieu! This seems the perfect 'swan song' for the season. Thank you!

Egg Nog and Bread Pudding are two of my favorite things in the WORLD! I will definitely be trying this recipe – thanks for sharing:)
