Banana Bread French Toast
Soft, caramelised and topped with sweet bananas, the banana bread french toast from Insta foodie bloggers, @wearethefoodwhores is not to be trifled with.
It takes just 3 minutes to make and 10 minutes to prep.
And your results will look like this… drool.
1 tbsp brown or caster sugar
Whisk the egg, sugar, salt, cinnamon and milk in a bowl
Prepare your frying pan or skillet on a medium-low heat and melt 1 tsp of butter
While butter is melting soak the banana brad slices in the egg mixture, turn over after 30 seconds and soak on the other side for another 30 seconds
Once the butter is melted add the slices to the pan and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes. Once it looks all golden brown flip each slice carefully and continue cooking the other side another 3 or so minutes
Take out the bread slices and in the same pan add 1 tsp butter, 1 tsp of sugar and some chopped banana
Fry until they are all nice and caramelised
Drizzle with maple syrup & icing sugar and enjoy!
