    Serves: 2 

    • 2 bananas
    • 2 eggs
    • 75ml milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 knob butter
    • 4 slices white bread
    • 1 teaspoon icing sugar

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Mash the bananas with a fork then add the eggs, milk, nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon, and salt and whisk until combined into a runny consistency; try to get rid of as many lumps as possible
    2. Put a large frying pan on a medium heat. Place the knob of butter in the pan. Dip a slice of bread in the banana mixture and allow the bread to absorb it for about 10 seconds on each side, then transfer the slice to the pan. Cook each slice on a medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat for the other slices.
    3. Combine the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon with the icing sugar and stir. Sprinkle over the French toast before serving.

    Cook's notes

    At a squeeze my pan fits three slices of bread at a time, so if making more, preheat the oven to 100 degrees C, and when french toast is cooked leave in the oven to keep warm.
    You can use cream instead of milk to give a richer flavour.
    Syrup works well as a topping.

    This is very good. Make sure the heat is on medium or even medium-low, as it tends to burn easily. I made a half portion yet it still made enough for 5 slices of gluten free sandwich bread. Thank you for the recipe.  -  25 Mar 2016
