You’ll need milk, eggs, and vanilla.

First, we’ll get our bread all nice and toasted. Banana bread tends to be very moist and somewhat delicate so toasting it will dry it out a bit, enabling it to soak up more of our batter, and also toughen it up a bit so that it can withstand the dipping and turning without falling into pieces.

Place your slices on a baking sheet and put in the oven until lightly browned, then turn and let the other side brown. I just put my oven on 400 and kept an eye on them.

Next, crack three eggs in a bowl. Add one cup of milk.

And a teaspoon of vanilla.

Mix well with a whisk.

Melt some margarine or butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Dip both sides of bread into your batter.
Fry in margarine until golden on both sides.

Place on plate and top with sliced bananas and syrup!

  1. Oh my goodness Christy! Just this morning, while I was making French Toast, my husband had to have a slice of Banana Nut Bread as an “appetizer”! LOL! Wish I had seen this early! LOL!

  2. Hahaha, we all call it that over here, it’s one of the oldest Dutch recipes.
    It just doesn’t sound so bad in my language somehow! (in Dutch it’s “wentelteefjes”)

    I wasn’t aware of the fact you guys make the exact same thing and call it French toast, lol.
    But I’m glad you got a laugh out of it 😉
