Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce

December 18, 2011

It is Panettone Season around the world, but luckily for me my local baker has one of the best.  I always enjoyed the different variations I brought back from Milano and Roma from local bakeries and now my enjoyment continues.  I do not suggest buying some unknown brands in neighborhood stores, they just do not do this beautiful bread justice.  (But if you do get one of “those” as a gift, do not despair.)   Make this luscious dessert that will please all.  And better yet visit and get inspired, he will teach you how to make any and every bread you love or have ever thought of making.
