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.



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


  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.
