Banana Caramel French Toast

Presented by BeanBath Café

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 T honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 8 slices day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread, 1/2-inch thick
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Garnishes:

  • Fresh banana slices
  • Hershey caramel syrup
  • Pecans or candied pecans

DIRECTIONS

In medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, honey, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. (This may be done the night before.) When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 375°F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is setting in a sheet pan. Allow the bread to rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with bananas drizzled with caramel syrup and sprinkled with pecans.
