Banana Bourbon French Toast
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
4 bananas, sliced lengthwise
1/2 cup bourbon
6 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vanilla
1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
4 to 8 tablespoons butter
8 slices country-style white bread (preferably 4 to 7 days old)
Maple syrup, optional
To make sauce: In a small pan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat;
carefully add bananas and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from stove and add
bourbon; return to flame and continue simmering an additional 2 minutes. Cover
and keep warm until ready to use.
To make batter: In a large bowl, lightly whisk eggs and salt. Add vanilla. Pour
in cream, continuing to whisk until well blended.
Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dip
2 bread slices in batter and cook each side until golden brown. Repeat with
remaining bread slices.
Transfer 2 bread slices to individual plates and top with banana slices and
sauce. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
