banana bread french toast

What to do with leftover banana bread you ask?

Well, let's make banana bread french toast!


I know Veggie Girl will relate to this as she eats a lot of banana bread when she's not eating her Lara Bars.
This french toast does not need any syrup, just butter. A little crispy on the outside and soft & cake-like on the inside. This is so easy to make too, just use the same egg batter you would with regular french toast, fry in butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or whatever you're craving, top with butter, and eat. Easy.



I'm trying out my new camera that I got for Christmas. It's a Canon something. It takes really good pictures in the worst of light which I love since my last camera I literally had to have the stars align in order to get great photos. This new camera is just so much easier, but now I have to learn how to use all the buttons to make my photos even better for shooting food so that my shots are a little more in focus.

What did everyone get for Christmas? Do tell.....

  3. This looks SINFUL and I would definitely be a devil and eat it! Oh my gosh. :)

    I actually am excited that I got a new pan set (which I've wanted for a long time) and a luscious robe (from my ex of all things). Hmm....maybe he can redeem himself. Hehe! As always, I get gift certificates as well. I spent my TJ Maxx one last night for a few more kitchen things and two fluffy pillows for the couch.

  7. That sounds delicious! My family loves french toast, I'll have to try sprinkling it with cinnamon and sugar, it sounds too good.

    This Christmas was incredible, and I got so many wonderful kitchen items. But perhaps my favorite would be the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, I couldn't believe it!

    Happy New Year!

  8. The question is, how come you have leftover banana bread? But this looks luscious!!! And it's mall about saving the bananas, right? I got so many nice things this year, guess I was a good girl ;)

  9. Not that I EVER have extra banana bread, but this is reason to make an extra loaf. Or seven. YUM. Could you carmalize some bananas for the top please? Thanks.

    And we totally didn't do gifts for each other this year, but I am getting a massage and pedicure thanks to the foot comment. ;) And yay about the camera! I love new toys!!

  14. no syrup, eh? for once, i may actually agree that a pancake/french toast/waffle concoction may not need that extra boost--it's wonderful! :)

  16. What a great breakfast. Wish I can have some now for breakfast :) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family Dawn. I too got a new Canon for Christmas :)

  17. Dawn, I just saw your comment on my site, and it sounds like your Christmas was incredible. You should invest in rechargable batteries and a battery charger, it has saved my family sooo much money, and once the batteries die, they only take a couple minutes to charge back up. Check out Best Buy or Circuit City - anywhere like that.

  19. What a treat it looks really tasty Dawn. :-)

  20. This banana bread looks just as awesome as you say. I must try it, although I would need to make two loaves to have any left over for French toast with my bunch.

    For Christmas I got the cast iron tripod Dutch oven I've been wanting for years. I can't wait to cook in my fireplace!
