When life hands you banana bread, make french toast!
Oh yes, weekend breakfast time, not really the time for a light and healthy meal in our house. This one was sweet, decadent and oh so delicious! Topped with a dash of powdered sugar, a dab of butter and some homemade syrup. Don't forget to slice up some fresh fruit for the side so you feel like there's something healthy on the table. Enjoy!
Fluffy French Toast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I also added 1/2 of a vanilla bean)
1 tablespoon white sugar
12 thick slices bread (I used 6 slices of banana bread)
Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.
