Eggnog Panettone Bread Pudding with Brown Butter Sauce

Indulging in the holiday spirit with a thick slice of this rich and moist Eggnog Panettone Bread Pudding drizzled with Brown Butter Sauce

This post is written in collaboration with Straus Family Creamery. All opinions are mine alone.

Picture this – a decadent fusion of rich Organic Eggnog, sumptuous panettone, and a luscious brown butter sauce coming together to create a dessert that's as magical as the holiday season itself.

The air is filled with the aroma of spices, the kitchen is a haven of warmth, and the anticipation of indulging in a delightful treat is enough to make your heart skip a beat.

Here is my easy, step-by-step recipe for a twist to the classic bread pudding: Moist and rich, perfectly sweet, made with panettone bread, infused with Organic Eggnog and a touch of nutmeg flavor. Served up with a drizzle of luscious brown butter eggnog sauce!
Can you think of anything better to do now than savoring a bite of this dessert?!? I thought so :)

To make this bread pudding special and perfect for the holiday I'm using two classic holiday treats: Italian panettone and creamy premium Organic Eggnog from Straus Family Creamery!

Panettone: for this recipe, you can use any panettone you can find at your grocery store. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive. And you can use plain vanilla panettone, like I did, or change it up with the classic raisin and candied orange panettone, chocolate chip panettone, or your favorite.

Eggnog: For this recipe, I'm using my favorite, Straus Family Creamery Organic Eggnog.

Straus Family Creamery is a Northern California creamery producing minimally processed organic dairy products, and it's the first creamery in the United States to be 100% certified organic and non-GMO Project Verified in North America. What I love the most about this company, is their mission is to help sustain family farms, support family farming, and revitalize rural communities. You can really taste the difference of quality and tradition with every bite! Learn more about Straus Family Creamery, their mission and organic dairy products on their website:

Things to remember when making this recipe:

Let the panettone cubes soak with the eggnog-egg mixture until absorbed.

Slowly bake the eggnog panettone covered in aluminum foil (except for the last 15 minutes), so that the moisture stays inside and you end up with a pudding that is golden brown on top and soft and slightly gooey on the inside (not rubbery and dry).

How to serve: let the bread pudding cool down for about 20 minutes, scoop it in bowls, and serve warm with warm brown butter sauce!

Note: for better-looking slices, you can cool to room temperature and refrigerate the bread pudding for at least one hour. Once refrigerated you can easily slice it up, and you can serve cold (with warm brown butter sauce) or reheat it and serve it warm.

If you are not a big fan of brown butter sauce, you can skip that step and serve this eggnog panettone pudding with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or maple syrup. Just as delicious!

How to store: make sure to store the leftovers in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days.

How to reheat:
- regular oven: place in preheated oven at 350F, and bake covered for about 10 minutes.
- or in the microwave, at 60% power for about 60 seconds.
This Eggnog Panettone Bread Pudding with Brown Butter Sauce is the perfect way to spread the joy of the holidays through the magic of cooking. So buckle up your apron and get ready to channel your inner culinary artist with a recipe that not only honors tradition but also adds a modern twist to the classic holiday repertoire.
