Description

I make banana bread French toast with my leftover sesame banana bread, and boy is this decadent and delicious. Bananas foster adds some extra banana goodness on top.


Ingredients

Scale

Bananas foster:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of allspice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp dark rum or brandy
  • 2 medium bananas (ripe but firm), sliced 1/inch thick
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream

French toast:

  • 4, ¾ inch slices of leftover, slightly stale banana bread (such as my Sesame Banana Bread)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk or cream
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Fleur de sel (or other chunky sea salt), for topping

Instructions

  1. Make bananas foster: Warm a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter in the pan and stir in the sugar and spices to combine. Add rum and simmer mixture for about 2-3 minutes or until the alcohol is somewhat cooked off. Gently fold in the bananas. Turn off heat and stir in the cream. Cover and keep warm.
  2. Prep French toast: While the bananas foster is cooking, preheat a large skillet for the French toast over medium heat. Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and salt in a wide bowl.
  3. Cook French toast: Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan per 2 slices of bread. Dip the bread in the egg mixture, coating on both sides, and place in the pan. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until browned, cooking in batches if needed.
  4. Serve: Top the French toast with the bananas foster and a sprinkle of Fleur de sel. Enjoy.
