The day after the Pad Thai experiment, my sister took charge of breakfast. She had been given a loaf of Pannetone, an Italian sweet bread, and decided to use it to make French toast. A very rich breakfast indeed, but if it’s good enough for Giada, it’s good enough for us!
The Pannetone is sliced, and then soaked in a mixture of eggs, cream, milk, and sugar. The slices are cooked in butter on a griddle or frying pan until golden brown.
The recipe called for a garnish of mascarpone and powdered sugar, but we went with fresh fruit (not pictured here.) While this French toast made a nice breakfast, we all agreed that it fell short of amazing. Given the fact that it’s most certainly a ‘special occasion’ meal, we’ll keep looking for new options.
