If you like Banana Bread then you’ll love this decadent, delicious Banana Bread French Toast! A simple, easy French toast recipe made with thick slices of moist, delicious banana bread, its the ultimate breakfast or brunch dish!
When the weekend rolls around, I love nothing more than a hot, satisfying breakfast! Cooking up some bacon or sausage, and maybe even some scrambled eggs. I recently tried out this Banana Bread French Toast, and all I have to say is “Why have I not made this sooner!!”
It starts out with a good loaf of Banana Bread. I have a great recipe, which is my Purple Ribbon Banana Bread. This recipe has won several 4-H Purple ribbons and its the ONLY banana bread recipe I use. The flavor and consistency is perfect, and it works wonderfully when made into French Toast.
My Purple Ribbon Banana Bread recipe makes two loaves. We typically eat one, and I put the other in the freezer. This time, I used that second loaf for this wonderful breakfast!
I topped this Banana Bread French Toast with warm maple syrup and some chopped pecans. This is such a warm, tasty breakfast – pair it with some delicious bacon or sausage links and you’ll be set!
- 1 loaf, Banana Bread
- 1 c. milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp. nutmeg
- Heat a skillet to medium high heat, and grease with shortening.
- Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Slice the banana bread into ½"-1" slices. Dip the slices into the batter on both sides, and add to the hot skillet. Let cook on each side for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.

As you can see, this recipe is quite easy to whip up on a weekend morning, or anytime you’re looking for a hot, delicious breakfast! I hope you enjoy as much as we have! ~Erin
