Sometimes we all need a pick me up breakfast. By pick me up I mean, I want a treat. Yes! it was a treat. Andy was gleaming for every bite. For sure it has few extra ingredients than an original french toast. It is worth it. For an extra luxurious taste, I made banana foster. French toast tastes good by itself. By all means add any fruits that your heart desires. Maybe add some maple syrup. Go creative.
I am using Challah or french brioche bread, you might find it in your local grocery store. You can also use any bread that you have in hand.
Ingredients for FRENCH TOAST,
4 slices of Challah
1 cup of crushed Corn Flakes
¼ cup of Granulated Sugar
½ tsp of Cinnamon Powder
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1 cup of Milk
1 tbsp of Butter
Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a cookie tray with aluminum foil or baking sheet.
Combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and milk. Beat them until everything is incorporated.
Moist the bread in egg mixture, not soggy. Then press the bread with corn flakes.
Heat a skillet at medium flame and add butter. Once the butter has melted, start cooking the breads on each side for 2 minutes.
Transfer the breads to cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
Now is the time to make Banana Foster.
Ingredients for BANANA FOSTER,
¼ cup of Brown Sugar
2 tbsp of Butter
2 medium size Bananas
½ tsp of Cinnamon and Vanilla Extract (optional).
Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low flame. Add sugar to the melted butter. Let it bubble a bit and add the sliced bananas.
Keep shaking the skillet for a minute or until the bananas are hot.
Top the French Toast with Banana Foster and enjoy. I also added some chopped strawberries. It is totally optional. Just thought that they look pretty and tasted yummy as well.
I like my toast crunchy with caramelized banana. For more sauce you can also add more butter and sugar.
