Panettone Frenchtoast Tiramisù

Leftover panettone? Use it up to make a special pick me up Tiramisù!

Merry Christmas my peeps! Hope you had a wonderful day and lots of nice presents too 😉

After 3 years away, this year I have been able to spend Christmas holiday at home with my parents and family! I had almost forgotten the amount of food we are able to eat over a spam of JUST 2 days!

Now Christmas is over but my house is still full of leftovers, specially panettone, I’ve got something like 3 different kinds all started and unfinished.

Now, yes I can have a slice for breakfast and a piece after dinner, but it would definitely go stiff in a few days, so here is a way to use up some leftover panettone in a tasty – not diet friendly – recipe!

WARNING: this is not vegan, low carb, low fat or in any way healthy recipe, BUT it is SUPER yummy! We will think about diet in 2020, shall we?

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 8 slices of panettone (rounds of 12 cm each)
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 ml whole fat milk
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 50 g butter
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 100 g sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • vanilla extract
  • unsweetened cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

Start off by cutting off 8 rounds of 12 cm each of panettone, I used chocolate chip panettone, but any kind will work just fine. In a bowl whisk eggs, milk and instant coffee.

In a large skillet melt some butter, dip each slice of panettone in the egg and milk mixture and cook it in the hot skillet until browned on each side.

Collect your French toasts on a plate and allow them to cool down.

In a large bowl whisk egg yolks, vanilla, sugar and mascarpone cheese until you get a smooth cream.

In your serving plates place one slice of panettone French toast.

Cover each slice with a heaping tbsp of cream, drizzle with some maple syrup

Cover with one more slice, more cream and maple syrup.

Dust the top with cacao powder and refrigerate for a few hours.

Take the tiramisù out of the fridge about 30 minute before serving it to allow the French toast to soften up.

Here you have a delicious way to use up leftovers of panettone and make a super dessert!

Love
