This Banana Bread French Toast is one special treat for a weekend breakfast or dessert. It is a must try if you happen to have left over banana bread. If not, make some using my Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Bread. Save it and pretend it is a leftover. Then make this scrumptious Banana Bread French Toast. It is a winner and you will not be disappointed!

I found the recipe from The King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion – The All Purpose Baking Cookbook. The recipe calls for eggnog which I am not a fan of and so I substituted it with half-and-half (half milk and half cream). Instead of sweetened shredded coconut, I used unsweetened coconut as the banana bread itself was already quite sweet. Here is my adaption of the recipe.

    What a great idea! I make my “soon to be world famous” banana bread whenever the kids are coming home. They usually take 2-3 loaves back to their homes/apartments and I’m stuck with 1/2+ loaf or so. I’ll try this recipe this morning, sans coconut. I’m the only one in the family that likes coconut.

    Thanks for contributing.
