Bananas Foster French Toast

This is one of those recipes that's so ridiculously indulgent and mouth-watering. Here is a recipe for possibly the best French Toast I've ever eaten. Hope you like bananas! Not that you need to love them, anything doused in brown sugar and butter is bound to be fabulous.

The banana topping is deeply sweet with caramel flavors while the french toast itself is caramelized, rich, with a lovely hint of cinnamon. When it all comes together it's DIVINE.

Serves 2-3
French Toast:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 6 thick slices bread
  • butter for frying
Bananas Foster Topping:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • pinch cinnamon 
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • In a large shallow bowl or dish whisk together eggs, milk, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Soak bread slices in egg mixture, allowing to absorb as much liquid as possible.
  • While bread is soaking, heat a large skillet or griddle on medium heat.
  • Melt butter in pan and brown the bread slices, working in batches if necessary. Brown for about 3 minutes per side, or until lightly golden.
  • Place slices on a baking sheet and finish cooking in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until slices have a desired brown color.

  • While the french toast is in the oven, prepare the bananas foster topping. I
  • In a small skillet, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved into butter.
