This is a festive take on the classic bread and butter pudding, but with some classic Christmas ingredients thrown in, including prunes, orange and panettone.
100g California prunes, halved
75g caster sugar
200ml double cream
Preheat the oven to 190ļC
Cut the panettone into slices or chunks and place into a shallow ovenproof dish. Throw in the halved prunes and make sure they\'re distributed evenly around and over the panettone
Grate the rind of the orange into a large bowl, then peel and segment the orange, holding it over the panettone to catch all the juices. Add the sugar and eggs to the orange rind and whisk together
Bring the milk and cream to a simmer in a saucepan, then pour over the egg mixture, whisking all the while
Pour the custard mixture into the dish and lightly press the panettone down to soak up
the liquid. Leave to stand for at least 20 minutes
Bake the pudding for 30-35 minutes until the custard has set. Can be eaten warm or cold.
