If you’re going to cook one thing this weekend, make it banana bread french toast. Use this simple recipe for the tried and true banana bread that’s going to be delicious, every single time, and slice, and cook on the griddle for delicious, satisfying, french toast.
Violet caught a bit of a cold this week and hasn’t been eating much more than fruit and ice pops. Amidst the whining after Jamie left for work, the only phrase that I was able to understand aside from popsicle was banana bread. Luckily, I had a loaf that I made yesterday, without chocolate chips, to avoid the messy hands that come with eating it.
This morning called for something a little more decadent. We commemorated making it through the week, and feeling better going into the weekend with a delicious breakfast of orange juice, banana bread french toast + bacon
Tip: omit the chocolate chips for a banana bread loaf to slice and put in the freezer for french toast. One loaf makes about a dozen slices, using a long loaf pan. Freezing the sliced pieces, you can make banana bread french toast easily a morning, with very little preparation. .
For french toast, I use two eggs, a splash of milk, vanilla, cinnamon and a tiny pinch of cardamom. Mix everything together, coat the bread and fry on a griddle over medium high heated pan, coated in butter.
