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!
Have you managed to get you January off to a healthy start or are you like me and seem to be hanging on to the winter comfort food? I’m not going to beat myself up over it as things will balance out very soon I’m sure, spring is just around the corner after all! A feel a wave of healthy posts coming on, just you wait and see:-)
