What’s In Bananas Foster French Toast
Banana’s foster French toast might sound fancy, but it’s actually made with basic ingredients that you’ll likely already have in your kitchen.
We used sourdough for the bread, as it’s sturdy enough to hold the rich sauce without falling apart. This then gets dipped in a mixture of eggs, milk, mashed ripe bananas, cinnamon, and salt for a flavorful and custardy French toast.
You’ll also need sliced bananas (these can be fresher), salted butter, light brown sugar, and brandy to make the incredible bananas foster sauce. It’s buttery, sweet, and has a hint of brandy for a touch of sophistication… because you FANCY.
