  • 7g sachet easy-bake yeast
  • grated zest of 2 clementines

  • 150g luxury mincemeat
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 5tsp clementine juice

Method
  • In a bowl, mix the white bread flour, caster sugar, yeast and clementine zest. Add the butter, beaten egg and warm milk. Mix to a soft dough, then knead for 10 mins.

  • Put in an oiled bowl and cover with oiled clingfilm. Leave in a warm place to prove until doubled in size. 

  • Roll out on a floured surface to 40cm x 15cm. Cut into 3 long strips, then spread with the mincemeat. Draw in sides, seal to form tubes, then plait. Dab ends with milk and tuck under. Put on a lined baking tray, cover with oiled clingfilm and prove until doubled. 

  • Preheat oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6. Bake for 15 mins, cover with foil and bake for 15 mins more. Cool on a wire rack.

  • Mix the icing sugar, clementine juice and orange extract, and drizzle over the plait. Scatter over the banana chips to finish.
