Who doesn’t like french toast? I never really eat it, but when I do, I always think why has it been so long. And then another three years go by before I have it again. Such a shame because it’s so good and gives me a reason to eat syrup.
I have been craving it for several weeks now, so I thought I would make baked french toast.
These were so fun and easy. I love how cute they came out served in individual dishes.
You can have them whipped up in a snap and save them for later to serve.
Cut 1/2 to 3/4-inch slices of French Bread.
Mine were somewhere in between so that I could fit three pieces into these cute little dishes I had.
And I’m so sorry. I have absolutely no idea where I bought them.
Marshall’s and TJ Maxx always have cute little dishes on sale though. Maybe it was there.
Eggs. Milk. Cream. Off to a good start.
Sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Even better.
Whisk it all together until blended.
And then dip your bread slices in the mixture and soak up all that goodness.
Place three slices of coated bread in each dish.
And stuff a couple of bananas in between each slice.
But first coat the bananas in the same mixture and then dip them in brown sugar.
Stuffed. Next time, I’ll stuff two on each side instead of one.
Let the dishes chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
When your ready to bake, mix a little brown sugar and butter and sprinkle on top.
When they are done, you’ll end up with these baked banana bread beauties.
Just sprinkle some powdered sugar on. Some sugar? … or a lot.
I lean towards a lot.
Pour maple syrup on top and you are good to go.
And just curious, which way do you lean with your syrup?
Waffles? Pancakes? or French Toast?
