Ingredients
  • Bananas Foster Mix:
  • 3 bananas
  • 4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • French Toast Batter:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • Bananas Foster Sauce:
  • 1 pound butter
  • 3 ounces dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • Oil
  • 1 loaf French bread, cut in 4 pieces
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish
Directions

Whip eggs and sugar with a whisk. Add vanilla and whisk until sugar has completely dissolved. Continue to whisk while adding the half-and-half.

In a hot pot over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar with the vanilla. Wait until butter is completely melted. Remove pan from the heat, add the rum and ignite with a long kitchen match. When the flames die down, add the cream immediately and whisk vigorously until sauce is completely smooth.

Heat some oil in a large saute pan. Stuff 4 quarters of hinged French bread, with the reserved sliced banana, and top with the cream cheese stuffing. Slice the 4 portions of filled bread into 4 diagonal pieces, dip into the batter and pan-fry on all sides until golden brown. Pour the warm rum sauce on a plate. Place the golden pieces of toast on top and garnish with powered sugar.
