Banana French Toast Ingredients

You’ll just need five simple ingredients to make this delicious stuffed French toast breakfast recipe!

  • 1 small banana – choose a small ripe one, not too brown though.
  • 2 pieces of white sliced bread – I use Warburtons Danish bread for this recipe partly because it’s less calories per slice than regular bread, and I love how it tastes.
  • 1 large egg – whisked
  • pinch of ground cinnamon – this gives the toast just the best taste and it smells delicious as it cooks. Warm cinnamon is a gorgeous scent.
  • 20g butter – I use unsalted butter, you don’t want salty butter ruining the sweet taste of this delicious toast.

      Step Three – coat the sandwich in beaten egg and cinnamon

      • Get the egg prepared – tip the beaten egg onto a plate and give it a swirl to cover the plate fully- this just makes it easier to get an even coat of egg on the banana sandwich.

      • Dip the French toast – put the banana sandwich into the beaten egg and press down so the bread soaks up the beaten egg mixture. You want to really soak both sides.
      • Flip the sandwich over – to coat the other side and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.

        Step Four – cook the banana French toast

        • Add the knob of butter – to a hot frying pan and melt until it’s sizzling and bubbling.

        • Cook the French toast – put the banana stuffed French toast into the hot pan and cook over a medium heat until it’s golden brown.
        • Flip the french toast – over carefully and cook it on the other side until it’s golden brown.

        How To Make Cinnamon Banana French Toast Your Way

        • Change the spices – you could switch the ground cinnamon for ground ginger or nutmeg or miss the spices out all together. You could also flavor the egg mixture with some vanilla extract.
        • Go healthier – with the bread – you could opt for wholegrain or seeded loaf. Or go super indulgent and use brioche or challah bread.
        • Sweeten it up – try sprinkling the bread with just a little dusting of icing sugar as it comes out of the hot frying pan – it will give the french toast a really delicious doughnut style taste…. and that’s a good thing! Or drizzle over some maple syrup or sprinkle on some brown sugar to serve.
        • Add in some chocolate – you could even add in some chocolate spread – just a little spread on to the bread before you add the mashed banana, they’ll mingle deliciously together as it cooks. And yes, this absolutely works really well with peanut butter too!
