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.

Zuppa di castagne e finocchi con salviaChestnut & Fennel Soup With Sage

Italy is the world’s third largest producer of chestnuts and Sicilians love them. Ever since I moved to the UK, I’ve slowly started to associate chestnuts with Christmas, but I must revert to my former thinking – chestnuts can be, and should be, enjoyed all year round. This recipe uses frozen chestnuts so availability will not be an issue.

Linguine Vongole e Vino BiancoLinguine with Clams and White Wine

I absolutely love this recipe, so much so I would say it’s my favourite in this chapter. I lived on freshly landed seafood when I was a young boy and miss it hugely.  This was, and still is, number one for me. It’s so easy and yet you really feel that you have been spoiled when someone makes it for you. Please be careful when making the sauce and ensure that you do not stir the clams too vigorously...

Torta di Pane al CioccolatoChocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it's a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when...

Insalata di fregola con olive, scorza d’arancia ed erbetteFregola Salad With Olives, Orange Zest & Fresh Herbs

A true Sardinian speciality, fregola is a type of pasta typically made from semolina dough. It is similar to couscous, but with larger pellets that have been toasted in the oven so it has a firmer texture and nuttier flavour. You can find fregola of differing sizes in Italian delicatessens and online – it is perfect with fish or shellfish.

Bucatini al pesto sicilianoBucatini with Sicilian Pesto

Classic pesto is a specialty of Liguria, in northwestern Italy. However, Sicilians have their own equally delicious, lesser-known version – just a few additional ingredients take it in an entirely new and exciting direction. In this recipe I’ve used bucatini pasta, which is basically a thicker version of spaghetti with a hole all the way through, but of course pasta of any shape will be fine.
