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!
- 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.
2 large eggs
¼ cup whole milk
¼ heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tbsp. Tastic Sweet*
Brioche, cut into 6 1/2-inch slices
Bananas Foster Topping:
4 tablespoons (57 grams) unsalted butter
1/4 cup (50 grams) light brown sugar
2 firm bananas, sliced
¼ cup your favorite rum, optional
- Preheat oven to 250F.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
