French Toasts with Caramelized Bananas
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp sugar
zest of 1 orange
pinch of grated nutmeg
3 slices egg bread
olive oil (for frying)
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp sugar
juice of 1/2 orange
- Preheat an oven to 175°C (350°F).
- Place eggs, milk, sugar, zest and nutmeg in a bowl and mix it. Cut bread slices in half, place slices in a bowl with egg mixture and then place in a flat dish like a baking dish and pour the egg mix over it. Leave it for a minute or two, so the bread will soak the mixture. Heat a frying pan with a bit of an olive oil and fry toasts on each side until golden (about 2 minutes each side). Then place toasts on a baking tray covered with paper and bake for about 10 minutes.
- In the meantime cut bananas, melt butter on a frying pan and start to fry bananas so it’s golden brown on each side. Sprinkle sugar over it and fry for 1 more minute, then add an orange juice and fry for 5 more minutes, so the juice becomes thicker.
- Serve toasts covered with caramelised bananas.
It has been a long time since I posted up a recipe that I’ve tried out! I forgot how bad I am at taking food photos… or how bad I am at making the dish look pretty in the first place. Don’t judge, please LOL!
Anyway, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Maybe everyone can make a sweet breakfast for their significant other! Wouldn’t that be nice? I know I would like someone making me breakfast! So get off your bum everyone, and make a lovely breakfast to show your love T_T LOL.
So I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, because I was missing some things as always haha. I didn’t have egg bread, but I thought it would be fine. I just wanted some french toast. I also didn’t have any orange juice on hand so I skipped that. I’ll probably be trying this recipe again in the future to see how it’ll add to the overall flavour of the recipe~.
I also experienced some hiccups when I was trying out the recipe. It didn’t turn out quite right while I was frying it LOL. I don’t even know.. I’ll try this recipe again in the near future though because I think I know what I did wrong. I think I accidentally left it in the mixture a little too long. Next time I probably won’t be leaving it the mixture for “a minute or two” because I’m not using the same type of bread.
All in all, I think this will make for a delicious recipe and it’s the caramelized bananas that really make things shine. Have I ever mentioned that I love fried bananas? De-lish-us!!
