Hold the phone people! I have an announcement to make:
I AM A GENIUS!!!
I wouldn’t normally puff myself up like this but if you follow me, I think you just may agree!
Alan and I rarely have a lazy morning together due to our conflicting schedules but Alan tries to take every Sunday off so we can spend time together. Normally on these days I like to make a nice breakfast and we’ll sometimes celebrate with breakfast in bed!
Well! This past Sunday was a winner! I had already decided that we’d have french toast but just before I drifted off to sleep on Saturday night I decided to do something drastic. I was going to go crazy and make something awesome and thus the following recipe was born:
Raspberry Custard & Grilled Banana Stuffed French Toast
This was fantastically easy to make and both Alan and myself were left moaning embarrassingly the entire time we were dining.
First thing you’ll want to do is make your custard, I used this recipe (using 2 whole eggs and cornstarch) and just added approximately 20 raspberries to the pot and squished them all down as they softened. When it was done I finished it off by straining it through a sieve to get rid of the seeds and set it aside to cool slightly.
Then I whipped up a basic french toast recipe (similar to this one) and while the bread was cooking on the stove, I began to grill up the bananas. I just sliced up just one banana and grilled the pieces on each side on the stove for about 2-3 minutes each to let them caramelize and release all the sugars!
Lastly, I assembled using the grilled bananas on each slice of french toast drizzling a few tablespoons of custard over top and placed the other pieces of french toast on top, drizzling it again with a bit of custard.
This is NOT a healthy brunch but it sure was tasty! Just make sure you only make enough for one serving ’cause you’ll easily want two but I wouldn’t recommend it! 😉
