¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon cinnamon
8 slices of good quality bread (I prefer sourdough)
2 tablespoons butter
halved strawberries, or your favourite seasonal fruit
maple syrup, to drizzle
icing sugar and cinnamon to dust
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and cinnamon.
Submerge each slice of bread in the egg batter for 30–45 seconds until bread is soft and soggy.
Slice the bananas in half length ways and fry on a medium heat in a non-stick frying pan with half of the butter until golden and caramelised. Set aside.
Place the remaining butter in the pan and fry the bread on one side until golden brown. Flip the bread and place the caramelised bananas on top of the four pieces of the bread (slicing to fit if necessary) while still frying. Place the remaining pieces of bread on top of the bananas and flip once underside is golden brown.
Serve with your favourite fruit, a drizzle of maple syrup and a dusting of icing sugar and cinnamon.
