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.

Linguine alla PuttanescaLinguine in a Southern Italian Sauce with Anchovies & Capers

There’s nothing quite like the taste of a good pasta puttanesca. It’s a real Italian classic and, when I’m back in Naples, my mother cooks this for me at least once a week. She always says that it reminds her of my late father – apparently this was the dish they both ordered on their first date. Well, it must have been pretty good – otherwise I wouldn’t be here, would I?

Coppette di anguriaWatermelon Puddings

Watermelon pudding is a traditional dessert from Sicily’s capital, Palermo. It’s usually eaten during the three-day feast of Santa Rosalina in July. It generally includes only three ingredients – watermelon, sugar and cornflour – but the garnishes vary from area to area, ranging from cinnamon, jasmine and pistachios to chocolate chips (which are thought to resemble watermelon seeds).

Pappardelle con MelanzanePasta with Aubergines, Tomatoes and Garlic Sauce

Many people steer clear of aubergine and yet it really is an easy vegetable to prepare. In this sauce, it enhances the tomato flavour without overpowering it, so if you have children who don’t like their vegetables, try this dish – they’ll hardly know it’s there. I often serve this pasta as a starter but be careful with portion sizes as you don’t want to fill everyone up before the main....

COPPETTE DI FRAGOLE, MASCARPONE E LIMONCELLOStrawberry & Mascarpone Tarts with Limoncello

For me, limoncello is the scent and flavour of home. Traditionally, this citrus liqueur is made from the best lemons in the world – Sorrento lemons. In Italy it is a hugely popular drink, with many people in the south making their own version. It’s really strong, about 40% proof, so you only need a small amount. Here, limoncello is mixed with creamy Italian cheeses and fresh seasonal strawberries...

Zuppa di Verdure all’OrtolanaChunky Winter Vegetable and Cannellini Bean Soup

I created this soup when I was cooking for friends who are vegetarian and they all watched me and wrote down the recipe so I figured if they were impressed, hopefully you will be too. I have used six different kinds of vegetables to make the wholesome soup you’d expect but the bread, cheese and beans give it an even more rustic feel. It’s the perfect evening family meal or a great starter for friends...

Torta Al CaffeCoffee and Ricotta Tart

Every Italian loves coffee but I have decided to dedicate this recipe to my good friend Peter Andre. I have never met another man that loves coffee more than I do, so this delicious coffee and ricotta tart is especially for those of you who are like us. The creamy ricotta cheese paired with the strong coffee is amazing.
