Banana Foster French Toast

This Easy Bananas Foster French Toast is one of our favorite breakfast recipes! Crispy slices of buttery brioche are topped with a delicious homemade bananas foster sauce made from dark rum, butter, brown sugar, heavy cream, and crunchy pecans. Delicious on it’s on, but devilishly good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

TGIF! With less than 4 weeks until Easter, I’m currently working on all things BRUNCH! And you can’t think of brunch without thinking of French toast! It’s a timeless classic, and mainstay on restaurant menus around the world!

And this Bananas Foster version is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Just one bite transported me back to New Orleans, where I first experienced the joy of bananas foster!

The toast itself? It’s tender and buttery, yet crunchy, crispy, and almost caramelized at the edges. And the banana topping? Oh my gosh… it’s to-die-for flavorful! Between the almost caramelized bananas, crunchy pecans, and buttery RUM flavor, I may never go back to putting maple syrup on my French toast again.

Pin

1 loaf of brioche or challah bread, sliced thick
4 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp rum (optional)
2 large bananas, sliced
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Maple syrup, for serving

Instructions:

Prepare the Custard:
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, heavy cream, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
Soak the Bread:
Arrange the bread slices in a single layer in a shallow dish.
Pour the custard mixture over the bread, ensuring each slice is well soaked. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes, flipping the bread halfway through to ensure even absorption.
Cook the French Toast:
In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
Add the soaked bread slices to the skillet, cooking until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Cook in batches if necessary.
Make the Banana Foster Topping:
In the same skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat.
Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved.
Add the rum (if using) and stir to combine.
Add the sliced bananas and chopped pecans, cooking until the bananas are caramelized and the sauce is thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
Assemble and Serve:
Place the cooked French toast slices on a serving platter.
Spoon the caramelized banana and pecan mixture over the top.
Drizzle with maple syrup and serve immediately.
This Banana Foster French Toast is a showstopper at any breakfast or brunch table. Enjoy every delicious bite!
