  1. In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon and clementine zest. Add the sliced panettone to the mixture and leave to soak for 5 mins, turning occasionally until all the liquid has been absorbed (alternatively you can wrap the bowl in cling film and chill overnight.)

  2. Scatter the almonds over a plate and carefully dunk in the soaked panettone, pressing to help the almond flakes stick, then turn and stick more to the other side. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan (you may need to use two pans if the pieces are quite large.)

  3. When the butter is bubbling, add the panettone and cook over a medium heat for 3-4 mins each side until golden. Serve with pomegranate seeds, clementine slices, and maple syrup and yogurt, if you like.

The panettone was almost disintegrating after 2 mins of soaking (even though they were good chunky slices) so I cooked it straight away without almond coating but it was quite soggy even once crispy on the outside. I put the almonds and clementines on when serving and they were nice. Overall was an ok dish but wouldn't buy panettone especially for it!
