What better way to start a Sunday than with French Toast! I am such a huge fan. I don’t know whether it’s the cinnamon, maple syrup or the fact you can use a multitude of different types of breads but it’s always a hit in our household.
This past weekend I purchased a loaf of Tip Top Scone Toast and new exactly what I was going to make with it. A Google search later and I found the perfect recipe for our late Sunday breakfast.
Banana and Cinnamon French Toast
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 x 2.5cm-thick slices day-old bread
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 bananas, sliced lengthways
- pure maple syrup, to serve
- Combine eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, icing sugar and cinnamon in a large jug. Whisk with a fork until well combined. Pour mixture into a shallow ceramic dish.
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Dip 2 bread slices in milk mixture for 30 seconds to 1 minute each side or until well soaked. Hold over dish to drain. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until bubbling. Add soaked bread. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a baking tray. Keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining butter and bread.
- Place French toast on plates. Top with banana. Drizzle with maple syrup. Serve.
~ Enjoy ~
*Note: like I said there are endless choices of breads that you could use. I also love brioche but if you fancy fruit toast then you could use that too. As for topping, you could use any fruit you desire eg blueberries, strawberries, etc.
