  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 7-8 slices banana bread
  • Butter for cooking
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour into a shallow baking dish.

  2. Slice the banana bread about ¾ inch (2cm) thick and lay it in the custard.

  3. Allow to soak for 15 minutes and then flip the slices over and let the other side soak for 15 more minutes.

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once hot, add a bit of butter to the skillet and cook 2 or 3 slices of banana bread at a time for about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown, firm, and cooked through.

  5. Serve warm, with maple syrup and fresh berries or sliced bananas.
