Baked French Toast With Banana And Chocolate

I saw this breakfast treat from Angie Tee's blog - Seasalt With Food and I knew I had to try it out..being a banana and chocolate person and a person who loves french toast...thus this was served as our dessert instead of breakfast....I told the Piggy and Wild Boar... "we shall have a light dinner tonight coz I am going to make you guys something great for dessert " and I whipped this out in just half an hour. Of course , I let our stomach rest for two hour before I baked this for our dessert !

This is something so simple and yet so mouth-watering with the sinfully rich melting chocolatey fillings oozing out and the layer of  banana slices sandwiched between the french toast..... awwwwwesome !  Gosh,  this is so good that I am going to make this again. I shared this dessert with my neighbor and she loves it so much that she can't sleep the whole night thinking of it and smsed me in the middle of the night just to tell me how wonderful the french toast was and smsed me in the early morning to ask me to teach her how to make this delectable piece of awesomeness....* never share something good or you will not have any sleep at all......just kidding !

I love the cocoa powder topping and the oozing chocolate is enough to make me chocolate drunk and I can't remember whether I went to bed brushing my teeth or not :p  for I dreamt of chocolate the whole night ! Children will love this and this  '25 year old  ' loves it too :)))   Angie Tee, thank you for another wonderful recipe from your blog.  I have bookmarked a few more and you will be bewitched by Angie's recipes again :)   But as usual I can never do her justice....mine taste as good but mine was a bit too thick :) I used the chinese white bread which is actually thick, the next time I will use Gardenia white bread which has thinner slices .

This is supposed to be a breakfast treat but I really can't have sweet things in the morning so I have this as dessert instead. Anyway, no one complains so I suppose it is okay to serve this for dessert!  To have a better look at this, hop on to Angie Tee's blog and you will know what I mean :)  You will be bewitched there !

Baked French Toast With Banana And Chocolate ( adapated from Seasalt With Food )

( Printable Recipe )


4 Large Eggs
½ Cup Milk
2 Tbsp Sugar
¼ tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
A Pinch Of Sea Salt

8 Pieces White Bread, crust off
2 to 3 Bananas, sliced
50 g Bittersweet Chocolate, chopped
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened (to grease the baking dish)
1 ½ Tbsp Demerara Sugar, for sprinkling (optional)

Cocoa Powder

1 Baking Dish (9 ½ x 2 ½ inches)


Preheat an oven to 375˚F. (190˚C)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt until well combined. Dip the bread slice, one at a time, turning once. Then fit the coated bread into the greased baking dish in a single layer.

Arrange the sliced bananas and top with chopped chocolate.

Repeat with the remaining bread and egg mixture and press gently with a spatula to lightly compress the bread. Pour the remaining egg mixture into the baking dish and sprinkle Demerara sugar on top, if desired.

Bake in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed and golden in color. Remove the toast from the oven and let it cool slightly. Sift some cocoa powder over the tops. Serve the baked French toast warm or at room temperature.

Serves 4

Enjoy and have a great day !
