Chocolate Orange Panettone Pudding

Chocolate Orange Panettone Pudding - Fab Food 4 All

I’m not quite sure what has happened this year but my usual January healthy eating kick just hasn’t really got going! I blame the mild December we had followed by the sudden chill we got in the last few weeks. So this and the need to use up some leftover food from Christmas has meant my January recipes look nothing like those of previous years and instead are full of comfort food. Forgive me then for another Bread and Butter style pudding in the form of Chocolate Orange Panettone Pudding but I thought perhaps I wasn’t the only one who had bought extra after Christmas so if you’d like to use yours up in an extra delicious way, then this recipe is for you!

If you’re not keen on orange zest you could always leave it out and if you had more chocolate chips you could add more. I used 20g as that is all that I had as I have a chocolate Hoover in the house, namely my daughter, so if it’s not bolted down I’m very lucky to find any left!

  5. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    Love chocolate orange, great idea for a bread and butter pudding. I started off eating really well for the first couple of weeks of January, have started slipping a bit but will try to get back on track soon 😉

    1. Camilla

      Thank you! Good Becca, I’ll join you in that:-)

  9. Beth Sachs

    Ooof this looks yummy. A proper hearty pudding and a great way of using up leftover pannetone

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Beth, it was yummy:-)

  10. Alida @My Little Italian Kitchen

    This is a fab recipe Camilla!
    Every year I end up with lots of leftover panettone and sometimes it comes Easter and I still have a couple sitting there on the shelf. In Italy they are really cheap, just over £2 each.. less than 1 Kg of bread! That’s why it is easy to buy far too many!
    I should try this recipe.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Alida. I picked up another one after Christmas in the sales. I do hope you give the recipe a go:-)

  11. Mayuri Patel

    Brilliant way to use panettone for a bread pudding and to top it up with chocolate and orange. What a wonderful combination. Must have tasted so delicious.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Mayuri it was fabulous:-)

  12. Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy

    This sounds like my kind of dessert. Will have to remember this for next Christmas!!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Gloria:-)

  13. The Food Hunter

    This sounds wonderful!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you, it was:-)

  14. Ali @ Home & Plate

    I love the flavors of dark chocolate and orange together. This is the perfect sweet treat.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Ali:-)

  15. Christie

    What a fab idea to use panettone instead of bread.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Christie:-)

  16. Annie @ Annie's Noms

    Chocolate orange is my favourite flavour combination in the whole world, I love this!! It’s right up my street. What a gorgeous panettone pudding!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Annie, it’s one of my favourites too:-)

  17. Sophie

    Chocolate, orange and panettone?! Sounds like a very tasty combination. Bread & butter pudding is one of my favourite desserts and this version sounds epic!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sophie:-)

  18. Kate | The Veg Space

    This looks really stunning Camilla, if I wasn’t doing Veganuary I would be popping round for a slice right now! I really don’t know why we try to eat so healthily in January when its so freezing cold and there’s Christmas leftovers like this to be used up – why not May/June when the weather is warmer and we face the prospect of summer clothes for motivation?!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kate. I’ve usually been pretty good in January but I really do blame the weather as it’s been very topsy turvy lately!

  19. Sally - My Custard Pie

    I think that panettone is much better baked this way. Custard improves everything! Nice recipe.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Sally, yes custard does indeed make everything better:-)

  20. Emily

    I love anything chocolate orange and panetonne too? You think of some amazing dessert combinations! xx

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Emily:-)

  21. Dom

    i’m bread and butter pudding crazy and any twist on the original is a beautiful thing… this is a stunner, plus the added choc chips.. i’m in heaven! Love the colour too.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you lovely:-) xx

  22. kellie@foodtoglow

    This looks just the recipe if you have an extra panetonne – love the chocolate orange combination. My Dad would so love this. 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks so much Kellie;-)

  23. Helen @ Fuss Free Flavours

    Oh, what a great use of leftovers. A panettone is one of those Christmas things that seems to carry on giving for ages afterwards. I usually just slice it and then freezer, then toast from frozen.

    1. Camilla

      Another great idea Helen;-)

  24. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    I would so love to eat something like this at the moment, but I indulged in cake at the week and I am trying to keep cake to a minimum at the moment.
    This sounds incredible though.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Dannii, yes a little of what we fancy does us good but like you I always keep things in moderation although on the blog this month it doesn’t look that way particularly LOL – maybe just a few more sweet treats have gone through my kitchen this month:-)

  25. Isabella

    I adore panetonne, (I bought more then needed for Christmas as well!) this recipe looks so delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Isabella, I tried my first Pandorro this Christmas which was also lush:-)

  26. munchies and munchkins

    Oh wow Camilla this looks amazing… I love anything chocolate orange! Thanks for including my pudding xx

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Becky and a pleasure:-)

  27. Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs

    Ooooh I do love the combination of chocolate and orange 😀 what a great way of using up leftover panetonne post-Christmas!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Emma:-)

  28. Kavey

    I didn’t have any pannetone this Christmas… outrageous as that is. This looks lovely.

    1. Camilla

      Oh my goodness Kavey, but I’m sure you had lots of other delicious Christmassy sweet treats – I seemed to fit them all in this Christmas, even Pandorro!
