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.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 8 slices white bread
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) skim milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a cast iron or other ovenproof frying pan with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat.
  2. Spread mashed banana on top of 4 slices of bread. Place remaining four slices on top.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip bread in egg mixture for 45 seconds on each side then place in frying pan.
  4. Cook bread for two minutes on each side and then bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until golden. If you don't have an ovenproof pan, bake on an ungreased baking tray. Serve immediately.


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!
