Cafe 222 Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast
6 slices day-old white or wheat bread
1 to 2 ripe bananas
creamy peanut butter
Honey, for drizzling
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon dark rum
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Butter or oil, for frying
Powdered sugar, for topping
Maple syrup, for topping
Remove crust from bread. Lay bread out on counter and spread a thin layer of
peanut butter on each slice. Peel banana and slice enough to cover every other piece
of bread. (You will be making 3 complete sandwiches). Drizzle a small amount of
honey on each piece of bread that does not have banana on it. (These are the tops).
Place honey drizzled piece of bread on top of a piece with bananas on it to make
a sandwich. Repeat until you have made 3 sandwiches.
In a shallow medium size bowl, gently whip, by hand, the eggs, cream, vanilla
extract, rum, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Heat skillet to medium heat, around 350 to 375 degrees F, or until butter melts
and begins to sizzle. Dip 1 sandwich at a time into rum batter and place into skillet.
Cook until golden brown (about 3 to 4 minutes before turning) on each side.
Remove from skillet and cut in 1/2 diagonally. Top with powdered sugar, butter
and maple syrup.
Yield: 3 servings
