French toast is even better with the addition of mashed banana. For a full on brunch, garnish with fresh strawberries, icing sugar and maple syrup.
French toast is best made with slightly stale bread. It's a great way to use up bread that might otherwise find its way to the bin!
Delicious! I would suggest one change, however. The bananas get very runny in the oven if you mash them. I now make this recipe using sliced banana instead. - 14 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was very good! We changed it a little bit by adding some cream cheese and sugar in with the mashed bananas, and we served some of the mixture on the side. Quite a treat for breakfast! - 05 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this was pretty good although i took the advice from other users and didn't sliced rather than mashed the bananas. my 6 year old would eat this every morning if he could. thanks for sharing. - 28 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
