Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt butter in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Once butter is melted add the brown sugar and pinch of cinnamon. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts into the butter and becomes a sauce. Add bananas and toss together. Let cook until the bananas are soft and incorporated into the sauce. Remove to a bowl and let cool completely. Once cool, add cream cheese and mash with a wooden spoon.

Using a paring knife, cut a 2-inch-long slits in 1 side of each bread slice, cutting 3/4 of way through bread and creating pocket that leaves 3 sides of bread intact. Divide banana mixture equally among the bread pockets.

In a large bowl, add eggs, heavy cream, milk, cinnamon and rum and whisk to combine. Pour mixture into a 13 by 9-inch casserole dish. Put the bread into the egg mixture and let soak for 3 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove the bread from egg mixture, using a spatula, letting the excess drain off.

Spray a wire rack with nonstick spray and put the rack on a baking sheet. Put the bread on the rack and transfer to the oven.

Bake the French toast until it is golden brown and filling is hot, about 25 minutes. Transfer the toast on a serving platter and garnish with confectioners' sugar and maple syrup.

I followed this recipe to a T. The bread turned out mushy and spewed most of the filling onto the pan. It smelled awesome and the edges tasted good. My husband could only choke down half a piece.If I were to make this again, I would cut back on the milk by 1C., add an egg and brown the bottom before putting it into the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I served this to my wife for breakfast on our 27th anniversary just a few days ago. Whoa. sometimes i try these recipes and they don't work or they come out tasting funny. Not so this recipe. This was A1. My wife is a picky eater so fixing her something that she liked on the first try was an accomplishment! I replaced the banana filling with Trader Joe's Lemon Curd, but everything else was the same. My two kids and I ate the banana stuffed french toast. Yum. We all loved it and it was easy to make. Thank-you Neelys for the blessing of sharing this tasty breakfast with us. It was better than going out but tasted just as good if not better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
