Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricotta
Panettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious fruit recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my panettone & honey pudding with chargrilled fruits & ricotta for you to enjoy.

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

Feast your eyes on the finest panettone & honey pudding with chargrilled fruits & ricotta! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Lightly drizzle the honey over both sides of the panettone. Arrange the slices in a baking dish or shallow casserole, about 26 x 26cm.
  2. Place the eggs, egg yolks, caster sugar, vanilla and Marsala in a large bowl. Whisk using a balloon whisk until pale. Gently whisk in the double cream and milk.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the panettone, pushing it down to soak up as much liquid as possible. Sprinkle over the demerara sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the custard is just set.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat a cast-iron char-grill pan over a high heat for 5–10 minutes. Once hot, lay the pineapple and peaches in the pan and cook for about 1–2 minutes each side (depending on the ripeness of the fruit) or until just softened and with char-grill markings. Remove the pan from the heat and toss in the cherries, leaving them to warm through in the residual heat.
  5. Put the ricotta, honey and a few drops of vanilla extract (if using) in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Serve the pudding with a large spoonful of the sweetened ricotta and char-grilled fruit and a dusting of icing sugar. Drizzle with a little extra honey.

Perfect for a midweek supper, this dish is quick and easy to make and low-fat too. Radicchio is very popular in Italy, particularly in the north, where it grows mainly in the Veneto region. Prized for the rich red colour and slightly bitter flavour of its leaves, radicchio is also a rich source of vitamin K.

Stufato di agnello alla pugliesePuglian Lamb Stew

You’d have probably expected me to cook a seafood dish when visiting the picturesque cove of Polignano a Mare, in Puglia. However, despite facing the sea, the absence of safe moorings for boats has prevented the development of a fishing tradition in the town, so it relies on agriculture. The area is famous for its wonderful fresh vegetables – especially salad, olives and potatoes – so I decided...

TEGLIA DI PIZZA PICCANTE CON ACCIUGHE, ZUCCHINE, E AGLIOPizza Tray with Anchovies, Courgettes, Garlic & Chilli

Anchovies are found in large numbers in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy, where they are a staple food and are eaten fresh or preserved in olive oil or salt. They’re high in antioxidants, and some research suggests they may be linked to longevity. If you prefer, replace the anchovies with black olives.

Conchigle Rigate PiccantiShell Pasta With Spicy Pork And Tomato Sauce

I love this shape of pasta and this sauce is perfect for it. The delicate taste of the pork with the strong flavours of the chilli, olives and sun-dried tomatoes is a match made in heaven. I know that most people add cheese to pasta sauces but please don’t to this one. It really doesn't need it and will actually ruin the natural flavours of the ingredients. If you fancy, substitute the conchiglie...

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

Zucca al Forno con Peperoncino e SalviaRoasted Squash with Chilli and Sage Crumbs

I don’t about know you, but I sometimes get bored of always having potatoes with my main meal. I created this in order to still have a substantial side dish, but with more exciting colours and flavours. Try this recipe with pumpkin when it is in season and you can use Parmesan cheese instead of Pecorino.
