On mother in laws last morning of her visit with us I made this delicious breakfast! Yum. Bananas in a caramel sauce over French toast!! I do wish the caramel sauce had been saucier! But it was still yummy! Got the challah over at the breadsmith. If you’re local you should definitely try their breads! Especially the apple pie bread!
Overnight Bananas Fosters French Toast
adapted from skinnytaste
10 oz Challah bread, sliced 1 inch thick
6 large eggs
1-1/2 cups fat free milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
For the Banana Topping:
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
4 medium ripe bananas, sliced
Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange bread slices in one layer in baking dish, squeezing them slightly to fit.
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, sugar, and salt until combined well and pour evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight for best results.
Preheat oven to 350° F. and bring bread to room temperature.
Bake uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 40 to 45 minutes.
Meanwhile while it’s baking, in a large deep sauté pan melt light butter over low heat. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add a few drops of water if needed and let sauce simmer about 2 minutes. Add sliced bananas and remove from heat. Keep covered until french toast comes out of the oven.
When french toast is cooked, divide among plates and top with bananas. Enjoy!!
