Delicious! I would suggest one change however. The bananas get very runny in the oven if you mash them. I now make this recipe using sliced banana instead. Read More

This was very good! We changed it a little bit by adding some cream cheese and sugar in with the mashed bananas and we served some of the mixture on the side. Quite a treat for breakfast! Read More

These were great. I made them for my husband and father on Father's day. After they came out of the oven I sprinkled them with powdered sugar drizzled a raspberry sauce and topped them off with real maple syrup. A very tasty treat! The guys raved. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was really easy to make. It was a nice variation from regular french toast but I still like the regular kind better. The bananas mashed in the middle gave it a strange texture. By the way this recipe is from a Bon Appetit magazine. Read More

I used a cookie sheet for baking them. I found that this was not enough egg mixture but maybe my bread was bigger than expected. Overall good food. My husband really liked it even saying it was necessary to put anything on it. Read More
