Here’s the recipe from Radio for Kids for the Yummy French toast!
- 8 to 10 slices of whole grain bread
- 2 bananas
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons of raw sugar
- Peanut butter drizzle
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ⅓+ cup peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put the slices of bread on a large baking sheet and bake them for 8 minutes, turning halfway.
In a mixing bowl, scramble the eggs, then whisk in the milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Melt the butter in the microwave or over the stove. Whisk the honey into the melted butter before pouring it into the egg mixture.
Cut most of the slices of bread in half, and the last couple of slices into quarters. Arrange the halved slices into a the baker dish and place them in rows Fill in the empty spots with the smaller pieces of bread.
Peel and slice the bananas, then stick the banana slices in between the slices of bread at random. Slowly drizzle the egg mixture over the bread. Use your hands to press down on the bread so it is fully submerged in the egg mixture for a few seconds. Wash your hands, then sprinkle the French toast with a couple teaspoons of raw sugar. Bake until the top is golden and the custard is set in the centre around 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes.
To make the peanut butter drizzle, heat the maple syrup in small pan over low heat (you can also do this in the microwave). Whisk in ⅓ cup peanut butter or more, until it suits your tastes (keep in mind that the French toast is pretty sweet already). Remove from heat. Let the French toast cool for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
