Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast

9 Sep

The first time Briana ever tried French Toast her dad made it for her. At first she thought it was weird but then came to learn it’s actually very scrumptious . Now older Briana thought Edible Reminiscence would do a spin on basic french toast. Briana found Food Network Bobby Flay’s Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast.

Briana couldn’t wait while Samantha was less than excited wondering if she could deal with this extremely rich sweet French Toast. With both of them in the kitchen reading the recipe instructions they both found them quite intimidating and time consuming. One thing to note it does help to have two people in the kitchen one prepping, the other dipping and cooking. Once we got the flow of things it was easy breezy.

Overall this recipe is rich and delicious, but not something we see ourselves cooking all the time. We nixed the maple syrup only because it seemed like it was going to be overkill of sweetness.

Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast Recipe

(The following recipe includes my notes and comments if you would like to see the recipe without comments visit this link)
Prep Time: 5 min (it took more than 5 minutes for)
Serving Size: 3 (maybe more depends on if you have extra batter)
Cook Time:20 min (I’m not sure exactly how long it took me to get everything completed)

• 6 slices of wheat/white bread (We used more than what was asked for)
• 1 or 2 ripe bananas
• 8 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
• Honey, for drizzling
• 4 eggs
• ¼ cup heavy cream
• 1 tablespoon vanilla (We added a little extra)
• 1 tablespoon dark rum
• ½ tablespoon cinnamon (We added a little extra)
• ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
• Dash salt
• Powered sugar, for topping
• Maple Syrup, for topping (We didn’t use this)

The directions originally ask to remove the crust from the bread but this is completely optional. I found that it makes it look prettier without but other than that I couldn’t taste a difference between the two.

Peel the bananas and slice enough to cover one side of the pieces of bread. I sliced two bananas. You will be making 3 complete sandwiches.

Prep your batter. In a medium sized bowl, gently whip, by hand, the eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Spread peanut butter on one side of both pieces of bread.

On one side cover the slice with bananas, the other drizzle honey.

Be sure to prep the pan with oil or butter. I used butter. I found it doesn’t take a lot of butter to grease the pan up.

Cook one sandwich at a time. Dip the sandwiches in the batter and place on the skillet.

Cook until golden brown (about 3 to 4 minutes before turning) on each side. Remove from skillet and cut ½ diagonally. Top with powdered sugar. Butter and maple syrup are optional. (We didn’t add them because it’s already very rich by itself and very filling.)
