Panettone French Toast

I recently received two samples of Bauducco Panettone through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.

Everyone was very excited to try the panettone, especially the one with Hershey’s chocolate chips:

The panettone tasted great as is, and even though it was really hot and summery at the end of September here in California, it put me into a holiday kind of mood. Panettone is a traditional bread eaten around Christmas and New Year’s time in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, and growing up, I ate Panettone quite regularly.

The panettone we received came with some recipes, and one of it was for French toast.

I don’t make French toast very often, but hubby and the toddler love it, so I made some. Since the panettone is quite rich, I decided it would be perfect for dessert. I followed the recipe but substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream and also added a few vanilla drops to the egg mixture.

A nice, sweet treat! I froze the rest of the bread, and we’ll enjoy it little by little as a special treat once in a while over the next few months. Thanks Bauducco Panettone and Foodbuzz Tastemaker program for making our lives a bit sweeter! Smile

Questions: Have you ever had panettone? If so, do you like it? Do you like French toast? 

Be well,


  1. dear sweet EVERYTHING SWEET, Andrea.
    My girl would looove this :)

  2. First, your son is adorable and his plate looks great. I'm not such a panetonne person but adore french toast. My family does as well.

  3. Aww, look at the toddler just staring at his french toast, waiting patiently for you to take his picture with the food :) I love it.

    I have never tried (or even heard of) panettone. Or at least I don't think I have (my grandma may have made this once, but I just don't remember!). There are many Italian foods that I have tried, but just don't remember.
    And of course, I LOVE French toast. Who doesn't?! Especially with berries and Greek yogurt. Great idae making it a dessert!

  4. what a fun bread to try! I've never seen this!

  5. No never had it. Have seen it in shops when we were on holiday in Italy but never bought it. It looks delicious.

    I do love French toast but haven't made it that often. Thanks for tip because I'm going to remember this and make it again soon.

  6. love french toast!! Usually make it with cinnamon swirl bread but this looks tasty too :)

  7. I have never had that bread but boy oh boy do I LOVE french toast!!!
