Banana Foster French Toast






I don’t know who Foster but he/she is brilliant for this recipe.  Be brilliant like Foster, make this recipe!

Major Key:

  1. The bread is the foundation of great French toast. Pick one that will hold the custardy goodness French toast is meant to be.  I like Brioche, Challah and Texas Toast. 



French Toast:

2 large eggs

¼ cup whole milk

¼ heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch salt

1 tbsp. Tastic Sweet*

Brioche, cut into 6 1/2-inch slices

Unsalted butter

Vegetable oil


Bananas Foster Topping:

4 tablespoons (57 grams) unsalted butter

1/4 cup (50 grams) light brown sugar

2 firm bananas, sliced

Tastic Sweet*

¼ cup your favorite rum, optional



  1. Preheat oven to 250F.
  2. In a large shallow bowl or dish whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, salt and Tastic sweet. Soak as many slices in the egg mixture as possible for 5 minutes, turning once.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a very large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat. Add the soaked bread and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until well browned. Add more butter and oil to the pan as needed. Once all the bread is cooked, place it on a baking tray in the warm oven.
  4. Make the Topping:

In a small skillet, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved into butter. Add banana slices to pan, stirring so they are covered in caramel sauce. Sprinkle on a little Tastic sweet. (For the PROS: If using rum, pour in and ignite with flame.  It creates flair and will burn off in about a minute.) Bananas are done when they are warmed through. Pour bananas foster mixture over French Toast.
