Baked French Toast With Banana And Chocolate


Another nourishing breakfast recipe that my kids love is Baked French Toast With Banana And Chocolate. Don’t you think they look like more like a dessert rather than a breakfast meal? I think it looks like a breakfast Tiramisu. :-) The baked French toast is not excessively sweet and my kids absolutely love the combination of banana and chocolate for breakfast. Yummy, try it!


Baked French Toast With Banana And Chocolate

Ingredients

4 Large Eggs
½ Cup Milk
2 Tbsp Sugar
¼ tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
A Pinch Of Sea Salt
8 Pieces White Bread, crust off
2 to 3 Bananas, sliced
50 g Bittersweet Chocolate, chopped
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened (to grease the baking dish)
1 ½ Tbsp Demerara Sugar, for sprinkling (optional)
Cocoa Powder

1 Baking Dish (9 ½ x 2 ½ inches)

Method

Preheat an oven to 375˚F. (190˚C)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt until well combined. Dip the bread slice, one at a time, turning once. Then fit the coated bread into the greased baking dish in a single layer.

Arrange the sliced bananas and top with chopped chocolate.

Repeat with the remaining bread and egg mixture and press gently with a spatula to lightly compress the bread. Pour the remaining egg mixture into the baking dish and sprinkle Demerara sugar on top, if desired.


Bake in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed and golden in color. Remove the toast from the oven and let it cool slightly. Sift some cocoa powder over the tops. Serve the baked French toast warm or at room temperature.

Serves 4
