I love making easy, delicious, and pretty recipes like this Bananas Foster French toast. Like they say in Mexico “de la vista nace el amor” which basically means that when something looks good, you are immediately attracted to it. I think that this saying can be applied to food as well! This Bananas Foster French toast recipe is absolutely delicious and you won’t be able to stop eating it!
Last year my husband planned a weekend escape for our anniversary. He secretly planned everything, from who would watch the boys, to the fancy dinner, to a couples massage, and a nice hotel, all as an amazing surprise for me. Let me tell you, it was a very relaxing weekend and we were able to try some great restaurants too. The restaurant that we went to for breakfast was beautifully decorated and was a great environment. That is where we first tried Banana’s Foster french toast, which is what I ordered. It was so delicious and I couldn’t stop eating it even though it was a very large portion!
Those that know me know that, being from Mexico, I love spicy, savory foods. I like sweets too, but they always come second. For example, sometimes I will buy ice cream thinking that I will be eating it soon, and a few days later when I am ready to eat I come to find that my husband already finished it off days earlier! All that said, there are some sweet recipes that I can’t stop eating, and Bananas Foster French toast is now one of them, and it is quickly becoming a favorite. We have been regularly making it, and including it in our “breakfast in bed” birthday traditions. We simply love it!
I hope that you will try this recipe on one of those lazy days where everyone is at home, relaxing and spending time as a family. The secret to making this Bananas Foster french toast is having nice, thick bread, and making the Bananas Foster sauce very carefully so that it doesn’t burn. Some people add rum to the recipe, but I don’t like it, so this recipe does not include it – and in my opinion it doesn’t affect the flavor at all!
