Caramelized Banana French Toast

A heavenly blend of crispy bread, sweet caramelized bananas, and a hint of cinnamon, the Caramelized Banana French Toast is a delicious treat for breakfast or brunch. This homemade gourmet dish is incredibly easy to make and will surely impress your guests. Let’s get started!


  • 4 slices of thick-cut bread (Brioche works best)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • Butter for cooking
  • Maple syrup for serving


  1. Cut the bananas into thin slices and set them aside.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
  3. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are well coated.
  4. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and melt a knob of butter.
  5. Place the bread slices onto the skillet and cook until golden brown on each side.
  6. While the toast is cooking, melt some more butter in another skillet over medium heat. Add the banana slices and brown sugar, and stir until the sugar has melted and the bananas are coated and caramelized.
  7. Serve the French toast hot, topped with the caramelized bananas and a drizzle of maple syrup.


For an extra touch of luxury, serve your Caramelized Banana French Toast with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. If you prefer your toast a bit crunchier, you can add a handful of chopped nuts to the caramelized bananas. Remember, the key to a great French toast is to use stale bread as it soaks up the egg mixture better, resulting in a fluffier and more flavorful toast. Happy cooking!
