I hit the jackpot! Last week I went to the grocery store to pick up some fruits and veggies and there was a produce special.
I bought a bag of twenty bananas for 99 cents! Yay, me!
I was thinking of all the banana recipes I could try out. Of course there’s a banana split and banana pudding, but I wanted to make something I’ve never made before.
I decided to try an easy bananas foster french toast recipe. I truly have a sweet tooth, so this is a great excuse for me to have something a little sweet for breakfast.
Bananas Foster French Toast
Most bananas fosters recipes require rum to be used, but since my babies were going to eat some I opted to use rum extract just to be on the safe side.
The flavors of oranges, vanilla, and rum give this bananas foster french toast a little something extra. My husband loved it and I think I’ll serve it at my next brunch!
- French Toast
- 2 Eggs, Beaten
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 ½ Tbsp. Sugar
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
- ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon
- Pinch of Salt
- 6 Slices Whole Grain Bread
- Banana Jubilee
- 4 Tbsp. Orange Juice
- 3 Tbsp. Butter
- 3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
- ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon
- ¼ Tsp. Vanilla Extract
- ¼ Tsp. Rum Extract
- 3 Ripe Bananas, Sliced
- For French toast, in a small bowl mix all ingredients, except bread. Pour mixture into a casserole dish. Soak bread on each side for 30 seconds. Over medium heat in a frying pan, cook bread on both sides until golden brown.
- For banana jubilee, in a sauce pan over medium heat, warm butter until completely melted. Add butter, sugar, cinnamon, and extracts to pan. Cook for 2 minutes, constantly stirring. Add bananas to pan and cook for 1 minute. Top French toast with banana mixture. Serve warm.
