•    Set a large, non-stick frypan over medium heat; brush lightly with some of the oil.

Tetley Tips:  

  • This recipe is a great way to use up day old bread as a replacement for panetonne. 
  • Honey could be used instead of maple syrup Tetley Chai Latte Vanilla can be used as a substitute for the Tetley Chai Classic, but omit the vanilla extract in this case Reduce the fat content of this recipe by using 5 egg whites instead of 4 whole eggs and spraying the pan with non-stick spray instead of brushing with oil.  
  • Look for panettone that is star shaped to look extra special on the plate, usually available at Italian grocers.
