Breakfast Panettone cups
Updated: Jan 10
Do you guys still have some leftover Panettone lying around your pantry? 🤔
If you live in Italy, I bet you do!
If you don't, I hope you can find it somewhere and give it a try!
Panettone is a traditional yeast-leavened bread stuffed with candied fruit and raisins and it's a Christmas staple in almost every Italian home so after the holidays it's almost impossible not having some leftovers.
Here a super easy and delicious idea to give this dessert a new life: Breakfast Panettone cups! 💁♀️
How? Cut out some round slices and bake them inside a muffin tin.
Then, when ready to serve, fill them with yogurt and whatever cereal you have on hand (I used Fruity Pebbles, LIFE Cinnamon, Coco Pops and Honey Loops!).
I adapted this recipe from Chiarapassion but you can also read my version below.
--- TOPPINGS ---
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin (no oil or butter is necessary for the pan).
Slice the panettone horizontally into 1 cm slices (I made 2 slices).
Cut out some round pieces with an 8 cm cookie cutter and place them inside the muffin tin.
Press down the panettone to shape the cups and bake them for about 10-12 minutes, until they are golden and crisp on the edges.
Let them cool before removing from the pan.
Fill them up with yogurt and cereal.
You can fill up these cups with whatever you want. Here are some suggestions: greek yogurt, pastry cream, mascarpone cream, chocolate cream... or, as suggested by Chiarapassion, you can even try a savory combination adding gorgonzola and ham.
If you make it let me know! :)
