Caramelized Banana & Cream Cheese Filled French Toast. Doozy of a name isn’t it!?
Found this recipe on Pinterest & just had to try it. So first if you don’t know what Pinterest is, you my friend are missing out.
Secondly, if you’d like to know, I’m the gal who can introduce you to the most amazing website that has everything from fashion to recipes to crafts –
pretty much anything you can think of. Okay, so back to what I was saying, found this recipe which took me here.
This recipe took a little bit of time to prep but not so much time that you want to give up.
Now to the ingredients! But first doesn’t that look yummy!?
2 large bananas
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
8 slices bread
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
butter, for frying
In a large pan heat butter and brown sugar over medium-low heat. Slice bananas on diagonally and place into hot pan.
Cook for about 5 minutes per side or until bananas have caramelized. Remove from heat.
Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together until combined.
Preheat a large pan to medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter. In a pie plate or shallow dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt together.
Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture right before placing into the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Spread an even layer of the cream cheese mixture over each slice of bread then place a single layer of bananas on top, then top with second slice of bread to create a sandwich. Repeat until there are 4 sandwiches created.
Serve with butter & warm syrup.
