Did someone gift you (or re-gift:-) with a Panettone bread this year for Christmas? We seem to receive one every year and this is what I love to do with the fruity sweet traditional Italian bread.

With family gathering and opening presents on Christmas morning, my Panettone french toast recipe served with coffee for the adults and hot chocolate for the kiddos is a great way to relax and enjoy and are fuss free for the home chef!
