It's almost Christmas (yay) and i'm sure many of us are looking forward to the seasons festivities, spending quality time with the family and slightly indulging ourselves. Since starting my food blog in 2012, and sharing my culinary journey i've embraced Christmas traditions from other cultures. In my household we have a mixture of English and Caribbean foods, such as the traditional turkey with the classic rice and peas. I know many would probably tuck into a hearty trifle or a boozy Christmas pudding, but I usually have West Indian Fruit Cake. The weeks leading up to Christmas I like to now try different countries cuisine, Birmingham German's Christmas market is a great place to start: I recently purchased some German Lebuken, and this dish, Panettone French toast is a twist on an Italian classic. This recipe features from Nigellissima, and is a doddle to make or should I say assembly. I haven't made panettone before but for £2 from Morrisons, why bother when you can buy? All you do, to make this dish, is slice the pannettone and then dip into an eggy mixture, fry for a minute on each side and dust with icing sugar. What you are left with is gloriously sweet, crispy, delicious and slightly crunchy pudding that young and old will enjoy.
Here is how my panettone French toast:
