it is one of those Saturday mornings that I really crave for a good breakfast treat.
I wake up, search my pantry and take out anything that can inspire me.
I spot the rum bottle, and the bananas.
I remember the banana foster southern dessert I first tasted in Pittsburgh a couple of years ago...
That's it... A banana-foster inspired breakfast....
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 4 slices of toast bread
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 1/3 cup of rum
- 1 Tbsp of butter
- 1 large banana cut into slices
- white sugar to cover the bananas
- heavy cream
- vanilla extract
- powder sugar
- You will need a small torch (the one used to make Crème brûlée)
- Whisk together the eggs, milk and rum.
- Dip each slice of bread into the mixture, and allow to soak for 10 seconds on each side.
- Melt the butter over medium heat in a saute pan.
- Place 2 slices at a time into the pan and cook until golden-brown (~1-2 minutes per side).
- Whip the heavy cream together with the vanilla extract and set aside.
- Cover the banana slices with white sugar and "burn" the bananas with the torch until they caramelize.
- Serve the banana slices on top of the rum-flavored french toast, some vanilla whipped cream on the side and dust with powder sugar.
I hope you enjoy!
Have a nice day!
