Banana Bread French Toast

For the egg coating

  • 1 egg
  • 2 T. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

For the syrup

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste (OR extract)

Prepare egg mixture by gently beating egg with fork. Beat in milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip thin slices of banana bread in egg mixture, lightly coating both sides, and toast in frying pan until both sides are cooked and just dry to the touch.

Combine sugar, water and butter in small saucepan. Heat to a simmer (not a boil or you'll get hard candy!), stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Stir in vanilla and remove from heat.
