Panettone French Toast

We've combined buttery panettone with French toast to create an indulgent start to your day. Light Italian cake - rich with dried fruit - soaks in a spiced-egg mixture before frying for a golden, caramelised crust. Serve with plenty of honey.

  • Not had much luck with French toast but this one works every time and is the perfect (the only I would say) way to use up left over panettone and colomba.
