This is a very light summery french toast recipe that you can prepare the night before. I have noticed though that only woman are the ones that choose this option. I am not sure if men typically like the savory choices like my husband or they are just unsure if this will satisfy. Served with bacon though, I think they would be pleasantly surprised.
Strawberry Banana French Toast – Serves 4-6 depending on portion size.
5 eggs, 3/4 C milk, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1 TB vanilla, 1 loaf french bread, cut into thick slices, 1 ( 20oz ) bag of frozen strawberries. I also used fresh in combination though too, 4 sliced bananas, 1 C sugar, 1 TB apple pie spice, and 2 TB cinnamon sugar.
Mix eggs, milk, baking powder and vanilla. Lay sliced french bread slices in a 8×10 pan. Pour milk mixture over bread and let soak overnight.
In the morning preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine strawberries, bananas slices, sugar and apple pie spice. Put in a greased 8×10 baking dish and top with prepared bread slices from the evening before. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes. Spoon strawberries and bananas over bread. Drizzle maple syrup over the top and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Served with bacon and cheesy hashbrowns would make the perfect combination.
