The banana in this recipe is pureed into the batter along with eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. This is wonderful!


  1. Place all ingredients except bread in a blender and mix well.
  2. Pour batter into a shallow dish.
  3. Dip each bread slice into batter for several seconds, coating both sides.
  4. Place bread in a buttered non stick skillet and cook over medium heat until golden on both sides.

I love french toast. This one was delicious. Loved the idea of putting the banana into the batter. It was so good, prepared this way. The french toast bakes dark, but is not burnt. It has a wonderful flavor. Garnished with icing sugar and a little maple syrup. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game

Thanks Marie for posting this Gooseberry Patch recipe. We made this this am for Christmas breakfast and it was delicious and easy. It has a subtle banana flavor perfect for kids and adults. I doubled the recipe and used texas toast. The batter has substance and makes a lot of french toast. Nice when you want a change from the regular. Served with maple syrup, butter, and a banana garnish. Enjoy ChefDLH

Great concept mashing the bananas with the egg. It works! I served the French toast with blueberries and 2 slices of bacon Lovely Sunday Brunch. A bit of Maple Syrup would go well on them too.
