Panettone @LondonDrugs! A Mangia Cake Breakfast!
Last year I wrote about my memories of eating panettone when I was growing up in Trail. I loved it!!
The brands may have changed and this year I might recommend that you enjoy your panettone with Illy Coffee; but that would not be why I write this most intriguing post.
This post is to give you a very quick and fun recipe that you can try this season to make your Christmas Panettone a little more Mangia Cake ( I let you click here to see if that one best describes you – LOL )!
This is a recipe for “Panettone per la Mangia Cakes”
This recipe is in essence French Toast. I am subbing panettone instead of bread, then coating it with Cap’n Crunch or Kashi’s Honey Sunshine Cereal. My naming of this sounded better, so we go with that!
What you will need is 2 slices of your favourite panettone (Of course from London Drugs!)
1 large egg, 1 tblsp or 2 of milk / heavy cream (I like cream), a little cinnamon and a drop or 2 of vanilla. Finally a cup of crushed Cap’n Crunch Cereal or Kashi Honey Sunshine Cereal. Check our this Blog Post – Kashi Honey Sunshine Cereal.
You will also need a couple of tblsp’s of butter and a frying pan that can hold both pieces of your panettone.
Turn your stove top on to med/high and put your pan on to heat.
In the minute or so that you will need to heat your pan; make you egg wash. Crack the egg in a large, flattish type soup bowl. Add the milk / cream, the cinnamon, and the vanilla. Mix altogether until frothy. Then add your panettone to the wash and coat well.
The egg wash coated panettone now gets liberally coated with the crushed cereal. Do the same with other piece of panettone.
Your pan should now be nice and warm.
To the pan – add the butter and move it around – make sure you butter does not burn (brown). Once the butter is melted, and just getting ready to foam, add your 2 pieces of panettone and let them cook on both sides – cooking is going to be by colour – just a nice (hopefully even) browning.
She is now ready to enjoy with your favourite Illy Coffee – Click here to see where you should be buying that!! I am sure you can guess which awesome Drug Store, that is ONLY in Western Canada, I may be sending you to!
Enjoy and have a Happy Mangiacake breakfast!
