Default Saint Michael's Alley Banana French Toast

Make the banana bread at least one day ahead. Note that only half of the loaf will be used for the French toast.

Banana Bread:
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
French Toast:
2 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Butter for frying
Real maple syrup, or sliced strawberries and whipped cream


Position rack in middle of oven; preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally grease a standard-size (about 9 x 5 x 3-inch) loaf pan.
Beat the eggs with an electric mixer. Add the bananas, buttermilk, oil and vanilla; blend well.
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the banana-egg mixture and mix by hand until well blended.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf. Place the pan on a rack to cool for 10 minutes, then turn the loaf out onto the rack to cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap.
For the French toast: Whisk together the eggs, cream, vanilla and nutmeg.
Cut 8 slices, each about 1/2 inch thick, from the banana bread loaf. This is about half of the loaf; reserve the remainder for another use. Soak each slice in the egg-cream mixture for about 1 minute. Fry in a little butter in a heavy skillet or on a griddle until both sides are nicely browned.
Serve on warm plates topped with maple syrup, or sliced strawberries and lightly sweetened whipped cream.

This is how I always made my french toast, this is an old creole recipe from Louisiana, my mother and my grandmother made it this way that is why I never understood just the egg and milk recipe. You don't even need syrup, just a good cup of coffee and the kids coco made with real hersey's coco.
