Banana Rum French Toast with Fruit and 26 Bakers and Counting!

What could be better that bananas and rum with French toast, topped with fresh bananas and strawberries? Nothing in my book.  This would be perfect for your Easter breakfast or brunch.  You can make this on the stove  , or made ahead of time,  let the bread soak in  the custard overnight, and baked the next morning.  You can choose whichever way  you want. The French toast in the picture was made with the whole wheat bread dipped in the custard, for just a  few minutes and cooked   in the skillet that had been sprayed with cooking spray.  You can top with  powdered sugar or maple syrup, or even whipped cream!

French Toast
4 eggs
2/3 c. milk, we used almond milk, and it was fine.
3Tbsp dark rum
2 mashed, ripe bananas
1 tsp cinnamon.
8 slices of whole wheat bread

Whisk, eggs milk, mashed bananas, rum and cinnamon.  Dip slices of bread and place in hot skillet, cooking over low heat, until prefectly browned. Turn over and cook on other side, until done.

If you want to make this French toast overnight, use French bread, sliced in kitchen slices, 3/4 inch thick.  Stale bread works for this method. You just adjust the recipe accordingly for how many people you are having.Spray a 10x15x1 baking pan, lay the pices of bread in the pan, and pour the egg, milk, rum mix over the bread,  Cover with foil, and refrigerate over night   Next morning  preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Remove pan from fridge and foil from pan. Bake  10-15 min, until browned and done.  Top with fresh strawberries and bananas. Enjoy

We now have 26 Bakers!  Thank you so much for those of you baking!  We can always use a few good bakers.  If you are interested, please email me here.
