Greetings to you on yet another glorious sunshine-filled day (sarcasm duly noted). I'm not sure what is going on with this weather, but I think I'll actually be surprised if I walk outside one morning and see the sun.
So...despite the less than stellar conditions outside, I'm here to brighten up your day with a delicious recipe sure to satisfy your brunch crowd. Per usual, this recipe is a snap to make, and if you know how to make french toast, you are halfway there.
If you are following the blog, you might have noticed I made this just two short days ago while I was in Austin. I recommend baking your banana bread a day or two prior so the egg wash can really soak in the bread. I was told this could be on a restaurant's menu, which to me, was probably one of the highest compliments ever given to me (thanks Uncle Chris)!
For the 13th installment of abundant life Tasty Tuesdays, I give you banana bread french toast. You're welcome!
1 loaf of your favorite banana bread
1/2 C milk
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
1. Whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
2. Slice banana bread into 1/2 inch-thick slices.
3. Dip each piece into egg wash and grill in a skillet on medium heat.
4. Top each piece with powdered sugar and sliced bananas.
For a truly decadent dish, you could top slices of the banana bread french toast with my bananas foster recipe from last week. I know, I know. It's almost too mind blowing, but it would knock the socks off any restaurant brunch item!
Reader question: what's your favorite brunch item? I think mine is a tie between monkey bread and mimosas.
