One of my goals for 2012 is to go through some of the utterly “food blogging newbie” posts when I first started and redo the recipe with new photos and, occasionally, play with the recipe a bit. Hard to believe that it will be 4 years for Cooking In Stilettos this March.
For the holidays, one of the desserts that is often requested is Giada’s Panettone Bread Pudding with Warm Cinnamon Syrup. I originally wrote about it in 2008 and decided to document it again but add my own little twist to it.
At the beginning of the holidays, I often head to Philly’s Italian Market and pick up a box or two of some amazing Panettone Bread. This year, I decided to add to my tried and true recipe with the addition of some rum soaked cherries. In my humble opinion – this was the best panettone bread pudding that I have ever made! Friends were asking for the recipe, family headed back for seconds and thirds and, well, this bad boy didn’t last too long. A word of caution is necessary however – this dessert is rich so consider yourself advised before you dive into its puffy gloriousness with a spoon.
