This is very rich and delicious and is perfect for impressing your company. I love it, but usually scale it down quite a bit since it's just me. It's in my B&B arsenal.
- To make sauce: In a small pan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat; carefully add bananas and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from stove and add bourbon; return to flame and continue simmering an additional 2 minutes. Cover and keep warm until ready to use.
- To make batter: In a large bowl, whisk eggs and salt. Add vanilla. Pour in cream, continuing to whisk until well blended.
- Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dip each bread slice in batter and cook each side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
- Transfer 2 bread slices to individual plates and top with banana slices and sauce. Serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
WOW! What a Father's Day treat for DH! Made this with Brioche Loaf # 94536 and it was fabulous! Simple, yummy and very filling. The only change I made -- due to personal preference was I substituted Captain Morgan's Rum for the Bourbon and added a splash of Banana Liquor with a little nutmeg as this is how I usually make Banana's Foster. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!
So, I just made this up for breakfast. This was wonderful! I used a 2-day old challa and it worked just fine. Like Animate Me, I made some whipped cream with the extra cream - I piled it on top of the French Toast. My only problem with having this for breakfast was that I couldn't NOT drink the Makers Mark while cooking. I'm tipsy before 10am! Thanks for a keeper recipe.
Wow! what a great recipe! I made this for breakfast today. It was very very flavorful. I had to use Something other then Bourbon as i couldn't find a bourbon that suited my taste as well as a good price in the local booze store. I just didn;t want to shell out 30+ dollars for Makers Mark. So, instead i opted to use Cruzan Banana Flavored rum. I had some cream left over from using it in this recipe and seeing as how i don;t use cream daily i figured I'd make a homemade whipped cream with the extra. I don't think I'll ever make French toast the "other" way again. I rather enjoyed a cinnamon-less French toast. This is a great recipe, thanks a bunch.
