4 pieces of fruit of your choice (think, apples, pears, or nectarines)
¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
2 cups (500ml) milk
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ panettone loaf, thickly sliced
60g unsalted butter, chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Toppings of your choice (think Crème Fraîche, yogurt, or whipped cream)
Finely chopped nuts of your choice (pistachio, macadamias, or walnuts)
Icing sugar, to serve
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray and line it with baking paper.
2. Place the fruit on the prepared tray and scatter with 1 tbsp sugar. Roast for 25 minutes or until tender.
3. For the French toast, place eggs, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, a pinch of salt flakes and the remaining 2 tbs sugar in a large shallow dish and whisk to combine. Add panettone slices in a single layer and let stand, turning the panettone halfway, for 6 minutes to soak.
4. Melt half the butter and half the oil in a large non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. In batches, place the panettone in a pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Repeat with remaining butter, oil and panettone. Divide panettone among serving plates and finish with desired toppings and fruit. Scatter with nuts, dust with icing sugar and drizzle with fruit roasting juices to serve.
