Bananas Foster French Toast - This delicious recipe is easy to make and is a perfect choice for breakfast.

Wait until you try this version of Bananas Foster French Toast! Ever since I tried it for the first time last year, I have been obsessed. It is easy to make, and perfect for breakfast in bed!

A couple of years ago, 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. This all came as an amazing surprise for me. 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 had 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!

Bananas Foster French Toast - ready to eat

Those that know me know that 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. Bananas Foster French toast is now one of them, and it has quickly become a favorite.

We now make this on a regular basis, including for our “breakfast in bed” birthday traditions. We simply love it!

How Do  You Make Bananas Foster French Toast

One of the great things about this particular recipe is that it is easy to make and uses common ingredients like bananas, whipping cream, brown sugar, and vanilla. I always start by making the french toast, because the bananas foster sauce doesn’t take very long to make.

To make the sauce, you start by melting the butter and then adding the brown sugar. Next, you add the whipping cream, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and let it simmer. Finally, add the freshly sliced bananas to finish it off.

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 I haven’t included it in this recipe. In my opinion it doesn’t affect the flavor at all!

Hi. You have listed 1-2 cups whipping cream. Are you saying 1 to 2 cups? Please clarify for me. Thanks.

Hi Lori,

Sorry for the confusion - yes 1 to 2 cups. It really depends on how creamy you want it. More whipping cream will make it lighter in color and slightly more smooth. I would start with one and then add more until it looks how you want it to.

Thanks! Charbel
