If it is indeed Sunday morning and you wanna live life, coat the whole thing in maple syrup and drink some champagne with it. Follow with a nap.
For the french toast:
- 3 sliced of thick bread per person. Try danish bread or Hawaiian King Bread.
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Quickly dip slices in mixture and cook in a hot skillet with a little butter until golden brown on both sides.
For the banana foster topping:
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 bananas peeled and halved, cut lengthwise
- 1/4 cup dark rum, preferably Mount Gay from Barbados
Melt butter in a large skillet. Add brown sugar and stir together. Add the bananas and cook until caramelized over medium-high heat. Pour in the rum and catch a flame off of the gas stove or a BBQ lighter. Stand back when ignited and flambe. Be careful; a flame will shoot up above the pan. Let flame die down.
