Wentelteefjes met banaan (French toast with banana, Dutch style!)

Fancy a hot and filling breakfast? Then try this traditional Dutch recipe for French toast with banana, which just so happens to make a decidedly delicious dessert too!


6 slices of (stale) bread
3 bananas
200 ml of milk
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 egg
1 sachet of vanilla sugar
2 knobs of butter
4 tablespoons of brown sugar

Dutch recipe for French toast with banana


First peel the bananas and cut into slices. Next pop the egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla sugar into a mixing bowl, and beat into a batter. Now remove the bread crusts and cut diagonally in half, until you are left with 12 triangular slices. Next, heat a knob of butter in a large frying pan, dip a few slices of bread into the egg mixture, place them into the pan, and fry on both sides until golden brown. Now heat a knob of butter in a separate frying pan, and fry the banana slices until, they too, are golden brown. Lastly, place 2 pieces of French toast on each plate, top with fried banana, sprinkle generously with brown sugar, and enjoy immediately.
