A simple twist on the classic french toast, these toasties are oozing with sweet sticky caramelised banana. I like to use a chewy sourdough but any good quality bread will work nicely.
CARAMEL BANANA STUFFED FRENCH TOASTIES
8 slices of good quality bread, I prefer sourdough
3/4 cup milk
25 grams (2 tablespoons) butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Strawberries, or your favourite seasonal fruit
Icing sugar and cinnamon to dust
In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk and cinnamon.
Submerge the bread in the egg batter for 30 - 45 minutes until bread is soft and soggy.
lice the bananas in half length ways and fry on a medium heat in a nonstick frypan with half of the butter until golden and caramelised.
In a nonstick fry pan over medium heat, place the remaining butter and fry the bread on one side until golden brown, flip the bread and divide the caramelised bananas into four and place on top of 4 pieces of the bread while still frying. Place the remaining pieces of bread on top of the bananas and flip once underside is golden brown.
Serve with your favourite fruit, maple syrup and dust with icing sugar and cinnamon.
