Leftover Pannetone

What would you make with it? I've toasted it, which is nice, and I'm thinking it would make a great base for French toast and/or bread pudding. Any other ideas?

    1. I've made both French toast and bread pudding with pannetone, and you can't go wrong with either. Let your slices dry a bit, make sure your custard base is a little richer than usual (use whole milk and/or half-and-half-- skim milk will disappoint), and let the pannetone slices/cubes get good and soaked. You'll be in heaven!

        1. I use pannetone to make French Toast on Christmas morning, and usually use some eggnog in addition to milk for soaking. Quite delicious. Also, you can certainly freeze the pannetone and save it for another time.

          1. I think it makes an interesting trifle, as long as it is not stale.
