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


1 loaf French bread, cut in 4 pieces

Powdered sugar, for garnish


  1. Add all ingredients except 1 banana and thoroughly mix with the hand held blender until it is well combined and uniform.

French Toast Batter:

  1. 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.

Bananas Foster Sauce:

  1. 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.


  1. 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.
