bananas-foster-french-toast-square-768x768Hii, this is my first post and it’s featuring Tessa’s (handletheheat) recipe! I love this, it is a great breakfast recipe and I would love to eat this for breakfast everyday.
So here it is:

-Yields : Serves 2-3
-Prep Time : 15 minutes
-Cook : 15 minutes


French Toast:

2 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
Challah bread, cut into 6 1/2-inch slices
Unsalted butter, for frying
Vegetable oil, for frying

Bananas Foster Topping:

4 tablespoons (57 grams) unsalted butter
1/4 cup (50 grams) light brown sugar
2 firm bananas, sliced
Pinch cinnamon


Make the French Toast:

Preheat oven to 250°F.

In a large shallow bowl or dish whisk together eggs, milk, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Soak as many slices in the egg mixture as possible for 5 minutes, turning once.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a very large saute pan or griddle over medium heat. Add the soaked bread and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until well browned. Add more butter and oil to the pan as needed. Once all the bread is cooked, place it on a baking tray in the warm oven.

Make the Topping:

In a small skillet, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved into butter. Add banana slices to pan, stirring so they are covered in caramel sauce. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon. Bananas are done when they are warmed through. Pour bananas foster mixture over French Toast.

And done! I hope you love it and please check out the original recipe and other great baking and cooking recipes in Tessa’s blog!
