Banana Bread French Toast With Crème Fraîche
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
4-5 servings
This recipe comes from the April 1st, 2007 Chicago Tribune. The original recipe is by JeanMarie Brownson. We made it for my dad's birthday on Easter this year -- it was a huge hit. Top with sliced bananas, and powdered sugar, and serve with dollops of marmalade and Crème Fraîche on the side. Personally, we all could have done without the marmalade and just gone with the creme fraiche or sour cream. We used Emeril's banana bread recipe, but of course, you can use store-bought banana bread. If you use your own recipe, make sure that the consistency is more like cake than like the moist bread -- otherwise it will fall apart in the pan.
