Arrange the slices in a buttered dish, fitting them snugly

Mix milk with eggs, vanilla and lemon zest

Add sugar and integrate everything well

Pour over the panettone slices, making sure they're all moistened

Let stand 20-30 minutes, checking once or twice that all pieces of bread are soaked

A tester should come out clean but don't overbake it so it stays creamy
