Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 75ml whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 3 mini pandoros, thickly sliced (see notes below) or brioche (6 thick slices)
  • for frying butter

BLUEBERRY SAGE COMPOTE

  • 400g blueberries
  • 4 leaves sage
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 4 tbsp caster suagr
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the compote ingredients into a pan and cook for 10-15 minutes until the fruit has started to break down and the liquid has reduced and become slightly syrupy. Remove from the heat and discard the sage leaves.

  • STEP 2

    Put the eggs, milk, vanilla and caster sugar into a bowl and whisk to combine. Dip each slice of pandoro into the egg and milk mixture, submerging for a few seconds so that it absorbs the liquid. Heat a little butter in a large frying pan, and swirl to cover. Fry a few pieces at a time, cooking for around 3-4 minutes until golden brown on each side. Repeat with the remaining slices and serve hot with the blueberry sage compote.

Pandoro is a traditional Italian yeasted bread – think panettone without the fruit. The mini loaf versions are available from Sainsbury’s and Italian delis at Christmas.
