A Banana's Foster bottom layer adds a tasty twist on the traditional favorite. I make this the night before a bake the following morning. I was able to plate the casserole banana side up. This was my first time making this and my 8 year old son really enjoyed it. He gave me a "10".

Directions

  1. Using a small sauce pan, melt butter. Add brown sugar and salt. Stirring until sauce starts to bubble lightly. Remove from heat and add rum and liqueur. Set aside.
  2. Mix together milk, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, salt, cinnamon & sugar.
  3. Butter a 13 x 9 baking dish, layer the sliced banana's and drizzle with sauce. Layer half of the bread, all of the chocolate morsels and top with remaining bread. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover with plastic wrap and gently press down on the top to make sure the bread gets to adsorb the egg mixture. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Let stand at room temperature 30 mins prior to baking. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake 45-60 minutes Allow to cool for 5 mins before serving.

Took this to a family brunch and it received pretty good reviews, though mainly from the kids. My DH did not enjoy it - I substituted rum flavouring and left out the banana liqueur to be more kid friendly - that may be why. I personally don't like to eat chocolate too early in the day, but I thought the flavours were good together. I would make this again but as a dessert and include the rum and liqueur.
