I'm a HUGE fan of Banana's Foster.
Paula Deen's Home Cooking Show on the Food Network Wake Up Call recently showed her demonstrating her twist on French Toast.
So of course, I had to try the recipe.
It was just as good as I'd thought it would be.
Banana's Foster French Toast Recipe
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 tablespoons butter, divided
8 large croissants, halved
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup chopped pecans
6 ripe bananas, halved crosswise and lengthwise
1 teaspoon rum extract
In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, cream, and cinnamon. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Dip 4 croissant halves in egg mixture to coat both sides. Using a fork, remove croissants from egg mixture, letting excess mixture drip off. Place croissant halves in hot skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves. Set aside and keep warm.
In a large skillet, combine corn syrup, brown sugar, maple syrup and pecans. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add banana halves and rum extract.
Coat with the syrup mixture, and simmer 1 minute.
Spoon over French Toast and Serve Immediately!
