Two pieces of banana bread french toast with caramelized bananas and maple syrup on a plate.

Banana Bread French Toast

Teri & Jenny
Use slices of banana bread for our Banana Bread French Toast recipe! We dredge ours in cornflakes which makes the slices come out with a nice golden crispy texture which is a nice contrast to the tender and soft interior.
