Looking for something to do with that leftover banana bread?
Try this twist on your classic “french toast.” Just make sure you baked the banana bread in a 9×5 loaf pan instead of muffin tins. My banana bread loaf was short in height since I halved the recipe.
Just slice your left over banana bread (banana bread recipe). My slices were about a 3/4″ thick. The thicker the slice, the lower the heat you should use when making the french toast. I then whipped one egg with 2 tablespoons of milk, a dash of nutmeg, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. (I only made one serving). Next, I dipped the slices of banana bread in the egg mixture. After a couple of minutes, I turned them over. While the banana bread was soaking up the egg mixture, I put a skillet on the range on medium-low heat.
I then transferred the slices to the skillet (you may want to use some form of grease–butter, veg. oil–if your skillet is not non-stick).
After a few minutes, I turned the slices over and waited for the other side to brown. After they were cooked, I dipped each slice in a cinnamon/sugar mixture (1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons sugar). I then topped it with butter and syrup.
Delicious and easy!
