About this recipe: I think French toast and bananas are a perfect pair. For a real American-style brunch, garnish with fresh strawberries, a sprinkle of icing sugar and drizzle of maple syrup.

Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method
Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a cast iron or other ovenproof frying pan with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat.
  2. Spread mashed banana on top of 4 slices of bread. Place remaining four slices on top.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip bread in egg mixture for 45 seconds on each side then place in frying pan.
  4. Cook bread for two minutes on each side and then bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until golden. If you don't have an ovenproof pan, bake on an ungreased baking tray. Serve immediately.

Tip:

French toast is best made with slightly stale bread. It's a great way to use up bread that might otherwise find its way to the bin!
