Have you bought your panettone yet? The supermarkets, delis and other foodie shops are stocking them for Christmas, so now is the time to stock up on a few of these delicately flavoured breads - so you can make the most wondrous bread and butter puddings next winter (though it's truly so cold today, I'm tempted to make one now). What a smug pleasure, laying down seasonal stores for future months.
Be sure to slice them up before you stash them away in your freezer, a size that fits your baking dishes. But - oops! Look, one slice accidentally fell out and got itself buttered, demanding to be eaten now! How could I refuse?
