Panettone Bread Pudding

Panettone, an Italian fruit-and-nut bread, is available around the holidays and is used to make this fragrant bread pudding. The panettone's filling provides most of the flavor, so just a little orange zest and vanilla will do.
Wonderful holiday dish! I added 1/4 cup rum to the pudding mixture, and used a bourbon sauce recipe, substituting rum for the bourbon. This gave the dish a traditional Italian flavor.
