I didn’t grow up eating panettone but the first time I tried it I was in heaven.  Buttery, sweet bread filled with the flavours of Christmas morning! Unfortunately, my family doesn’t share my affection for panettone, so I had to find a way not to eat the whole darn loaf myself! Enter this skiers french toast, the easiest and most delicious way to save myself from eating an entire loaf of panettone!

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 small panettone (900 grams)

5 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp orange zest

  • Add the butter, brown sugar and maple syrup into a small pot and melt everything over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook the mixture for about 3 min until brown sugar is completely dissolved.

  • Pour the butter mixture into a 9 x13 baking dish.

  • Use your hands to break the panettone up into bite sized pieces and place them on top of the butter mixture in the baking dish.

  • Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, lemon and orange zest together and then pour evenly over the panettone.

  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place in the fridge over night.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake your skiers french toast on the middle rack for 40 minutes.

  • Serve dusted with icing sugar or fresh fruit.
