Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricotta
Panettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious fruit recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my panettone & honey pudding with chargrilled fruits & ricotta for you to enjoy.

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

Feast your eyes on the finest panettone & honey pudding with chargrilled fruits & ricotta! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Lightly drizzle the honey over both sides of the panettone. Arrange the slices in a baking dish or shallow casserole, about 26 x 26cm.
  2. Place the eggs, egg yolks, caster sugar, vanilla and Marsala in a large bowl. Whisk using a balloon whisk until pale. Gently whisk in the double cream and milk.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the panettone, pushing it down to soak up as much liquid as possible. Sprinkle over the demerara sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the custard is just set.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat a cast-iron char-grill pan over a high heat for 5–10 minutes. Once hot, lay the pineapple and peaches in the pan and cook for about 1–2 minutes each side (depending on the ripeness of the fruit) or until just softened and with char-grill markings. Remove the pan from the heat and toss in the cherries, leaving them to warm through in the residual heat.
  5. Put the ricotta, honey and a few drops of vanilla extract (if using) in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Serve the pudding with a large spoonful of the sweetened ricotta and char-grilled fruit and a dusting of icing sugar. Drizzle with a little extra honey.

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

Stufato di agnello alla pugliesePuglian Lamb Stew

You’d have probably expected me to cook a seafood dish when visiting the picturesque cove of Polignano a Mare, in Puglia. However, despite facing the sea, the absence of safe moorings for boats has prevented the development of a fishing tradition in the town, so it relies on agriculture. The area is famous for its wonderful fresh vegetables – especially salad, olives and potatoes – so I decided...

BrodettoPrawn & Monkfish Soup

Once considered poor man’s food, Italian fish soup can now be found in the best restaurants along the Adriatic coast. From Trieste to Puglia you’ll find the so-called brodetti (broths), although they vary from region to region. We had countless bowlfuls on our coastal journey; each was unique and all were delicious. Here I’ve used prawns and monkfish, but any white fish would work just as well....

If scamorza is unavailable, use a mixture...

Spiedini di pollo con insalata di fagioli e ceciChicken Skewers With Beans & Chickpea Salad

This is a great way to cook chicken – the sweetness of the marmalade combines with the smokiness and spice of the paprika to give a delicious glaze. I usually cook the skewers on a barbecue, but you can char-grill them too. When threading them, it helps to use the natural curved shape of the yellow peppers or onions at either end to keep the other ingredients secure.
