What to serve with Panettone?

    I was given an Italian Panetonne cake for Christmas, still unopened. According to its box it's "an ideal dessert" but I've never had one before. Have got the family over for lunch on Sunday which seems like a good opportunity to open it (and hopefully eat it all as it's taking up a lot of space in my larder!).

    I'm wondering what to serve with it though. Just a slice of cake on its own looks a bit dry. Any ideas for what I could serve with it?

    That's what I do with it too. I find it dry and dull otherwise.

    As others have said,it makes a lovely bread and butter pudding or any other puddings that would use bread.

    My other half slices it, toasts it and has it with *shudder* cheese.

    Me? I have it with ice cream :)

    Oh, and it's nice in trifles especially if you slosh it in limoncello

    Cut two thick slices, horizontally. Sandwich some mincemeat between the slices. Fry in a pan on both sides in a little butter until golden brown. Tip onto a plate, dust with icing sugar and cut into wedges to serve with ice cream or cream. Repeat with the rest of the pannetone!

    If you CBA to make a proper dessert, it'll be nice with a bought fruit compote and some whipped cream or mascarpone

    I do like it just with coffee though.

    I love a slice with tea or coffee, otherwise bread and butter pudding as others have suggested.

    Yup, B and B pudding, or give it to the birds.

    Use as the base of a baked Alaska.

    Put some slices in the freezer about 1 hour before you are going to eat them. Melt dark bitter chocolate and some orange zest and some cointreau until runny, let it coolslghtly. plate up the freezing cold slices and pour the chocolate mix over evenly,leaving a couple of spoons of the mix. It should set hard. Then sandwich the slices together using the remaining mix as "glue". Return to freezer for 5 mins. Cut into small triangles, eat with ice cream and/or coffee.

    Also nice with milk chocolate and rock salt

    I used this recipe and it was a great success. Everyone loved it, even my 1 yo and 3 yo grandchildren. Thanks. This will be my go-to recipe for left over panetonne if anyone ever gives me another one!

    A bit late I know, but I'd make either a mandarin or cranberry ice-cream or sorbet to serve with it.
