Break tradition with this fabulously festive bread and butter pudding, which uses brightly coloured sweet potatoes, chocolate and Italian Christmas cake to revamp an old classic. A show stopper that will brighten up the Boxing Day feast, this pud is also practical as it makes use of any extra panettone that hasn’t been gobbled up yet. The Love Sweet Potatoes campaign aims to tell everyone about sweet potatoes and of all the different ways they can be used in everyday meals. The North Carolina US farming family at Scott Farms is behind the campaign and has been growing sweet potatoes for over four generations. They are now the largest importer of sweet potatoes into the UK.
The Panettone can be replaced with bread, brioche or any cake you might like. If you’re using bread, you might like to increase the amount of sugar. This bread and butter pudding is also delicious served cold!
