Banana Bread:

Nonstick cooking spray, for the pan

1/3 cup (5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon) butter, at room temperature, plus more butter for cooking toast

1/2 cup brown sugar 

3 eggs 

3 ripe bananas 

1/4 cup Greek yogurt 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder 

1 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

Apple Compote:

3 apples, peeled, small dice

1/4 cup brown sugar 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

Pinch salt 

1 tablespoon butter 

Egg Wash:

3 eggs

1/4 cup 35 percent cream (whipping cream) 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

Pinch salt 

Whipped Cream:

1/2 cup 35 percent cream (whipping cream)

3 tablespoons powdered sugar, plus more for dusting 

Maple syrup, for serving


  1. For the banana bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper; spray the parchment.
  2. Cream the butter and brown sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, 5 minutes. Add eggs and mix for another 3 minutes, then add the bananas, yogurt and vanilla. Mix on low for 2 minutes, then add the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and mix until everything is incorporated, about 2 minutes. Add batter to prepared pan (it should fill the pan three-quarters of the way) and bake until a tester comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes.
  3. Take loaf out of pan and put on a cooling rack. Let cool completely.
  4. For the apple compote: Add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt to a pot over medium heat. Warm until sugar is dissolved, 5 minutes. Add butter and mix until the butter is melted and the sugar is bubbling, 2 minutes. Take pot off heat and let cool. Serve cold.
  5. For the egg wash: Mix eggs, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl with a whisk until everything is incorporated.
  6. For the whipped cream: Beat the cream together with the powdered sugar with a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on 4th speed until nice and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Cut three 1/2-inch-thick slices of the banana bread and dip in the egg wash. Put in a hot frying pan with butter in it. Turn heat to medium and cook until golden brown, 3 minutes per side. Take off heat and cut the slices corner to corner into triangles. Make a circle with the 6 pieces so there is a little hole in the middle. Fill the hole with 2 tablespoons prepared apple compote and add 3 little pillows of whipped cream around the plate. Add some maple syrup (local syrup is best) and dust some powdered sugar on top. Enjoy!
