Pandoro can be found in most italian homes during the holidays. It is basically a sweet bread that is shaped like a star and dusted with icing sugar just before serving.
Nothing beats Pandoro french toast drizzled with real maple syrup the day after Christmas.
In this simple recipe the warm delicate buttery flavor of the Pandoro is elevated by the added vanilla and sealed with a crunchy golden brown exterior.
Pandoro French Toast
Leftover Pandoro (6 pieces)
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp sugar
Use a day old Pandoro leftovers (2 or 3 days old works just as well)
Slice it in half (vertically) and then make 1inch thick horizontal slices which you then cut in 2 (vertical).
Place pan on medium heat and add enough butter to coat the bottom of the pan once melted. Add butter when needed as you go.
Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar and quickly dip your Pandoro on each side.
Place Pandoro in pan and cook until golden brown on each side.
Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy
*You can do the same recipe with Panettone, it's just as delicious! *
