TOASTED PANETTONE WITH SUMMER BERRIES, YOGHURT AND ROSEPETALS

Desserts, FruitAlison Lambert

Panettone is traditional Italian fruit bread which is served at Christmas time. It is delicious anytime of the day but I have used it many times in puddings. It works wonderfully for bread and butter pudding, French toast or as I have done here added a few summer berries and yoghurt and it has turned into the perfect start to your Christmas day!


Serves 4


2 Tbsp rose petal sugar
1 cup strawberries, halved and hulled
1 cup cherries, stones removed
1 cup raspberries
1 cup (280g) Greek yoghurt
900g panettone or fruit bread, thickly sliced


Method
Combine the berries together in a bowl and sprinkle over 1 tablespoon of the rosepetal sugar and let the berries macerate to draw out their natural juices.


Combine the remaining sugar with the yoghurt.


Toast the panettone under a preheated hot grill for 1 minute each side or until golden. Place on serving plates, top with the yoghurt mixture and spoon over the berries and juices.
