Ingredients need for Leftover Panettone Chocolate & Cranberry Pudding

Vegan Panettone Pudding

I used vegetarian ingredients for this recipe for friends, but you can easily make it vegan. Use dairy free custard (I like Alpro), vegan chocolate spread and vegan panettone, which is available to buy online.

The flavours blend together beautifully to make this festive pudding that's a breeze to make. It's so easy and quick, you can easily through it together if unexpected guests arrive or if you just want an easy and quick pudding to serve to your friends or family.

My ingredients are from Costcutter, who really believe that Christmas is about bringing people together and spending time together. They have a campaign just now called Bringing Christmas Together, with ideas and yuletide recipes. I particularly like their recipe for a White Christmas Mojito.

They have everything you need from the perfect wine pairing, party food that everyone will love and every thing you need for the most delicious festive meals.

And look at that cute little panettone!

Making Leftover Panettone Chocolate & Cranberry Pudding

Easy Store Cupboard Pudding

You know my key word is easy and this is a very easy pudding. You just slice your leftover panettone (although this is so good, I would buy panettone especially), spread it with chocolate spread, add a scattering of juicy raisins, cranberries and chocolate chips (because there is never enough chocolate), then you top the whole dish with custard.

Leave the custard to sink into the pudding for 20-30 minutes before popping it in the oven.

The result is the most gooey, soft pudding that is the perfect festive dessert.

It's a real family favourite.

Pear and Mincemeat Strudel

Pear and Mincemeat Strudel

A rather special dessert. Flaky layers of pastry wrapped around juicy pears and using up any leftover spicy mincemeat (which is spiced dried fruit and nothing to do with meat). 

Disclosure: I created this recipe for Costcutter. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.


  1. This is such a creative way to use up leftover panettone! This dessert sounds dangerously good! Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Oh yes it is definitely dangerously good as it's so moreish.

  2. What a great idea for leftover pannetone! It looks so luscious and rich -- definitely a decadent dessert!

    1. Yes decadent but so simple and quick to make. Well worth making.

  3. That looks so good Jacqueline, I like that the custard is baked into the pudding. I use my local costcutter a lot, I will look and see if they have any of those little panettone cakes left. They might even be reduced now. I hope you had a good Christmas. Jill

    1. Yes do look and see if they have the little or full size panettone left. I used four of the little ones, but of course you could use one small panettone and made an individual pudding. Yes we had a great Christmas, I hope you did too.

  4. This sounds and looks absolutely delicious! Panettone is such a treat to me, and with the chocolate and cranberries, this is perfectly festive without being too hard or involved!

    1. Exactly seasonal but very easy and absolutely delicious. I hope you try it.

  5. That flavor combo sounds incredible! I can't wait to try this!

    Love this recipe because it's a great way to use up leftover pannettone, which we always have a lot of! We live in Italy and my hubby is a doctor. Seems all his patients give him pannettone at Christmas! I still have about 4 to use up! So thank you for sharing this!

    1. Ha, well this is the perfect recipe for you Jacqueline. I hope you enjoy it. Just remember the vanilla ice cream to eat it with, while it's hot.

  7. This looks so good Jac. Lucky friends I say. We didn't have a single scrap of leftover panettone, it all went way to quickly. But if we had, I'd be making this like a shot.

    1. Haha well it is rather good, but next time you see one, pick it up and make this.

  8. This looks and sounds incredibly delicious!!

  9. Oh yum! I wish I had leftover panettone as this would be so tasty and a very popular dessert for the children after school too!

  10. Such a delicious looking recipe! I love panettone so much, missing having it this year as didn't see a vegan one anywhere. Might make my own next year.
