Valentine's Day Banana Bread French Toast Recipe

This recipe is such a perfect treat to share with the ones you love this Valentine's Day.

French Toast with Monsalvat Farm Maple Syrup from Mark Addison in Vermont


  • 8 Large eggs
  • ¼ Cup whipping cream (you may substitute with sour cream)
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch table salt
  • 1 Hungry Monkey Original or Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, sliced into 6 pieces (you may substitute with our Original Banana Bread)
  • 2 – 4 Tbs. butter, preferably clarified
  • ¼ Cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
  • Whipped Cream (optional)
  • Maple Syrup


Whisk the first five ingredients in a shallow bowl.

Heat 2 Tbs. of the butter in a large skillet on medium heat (preferably clarified butter as it has a higher burn point. You can find it in most grocery stores; it is also called Ghee).

Dip slices of the banana bread into the mixture, one at a time, making sure to soak it enough, but not too much so it gets soggy. Place slices in sizzling butter, careful not to crowd the pan. Add more butter if you see that the banana bread is beginning to stick to the pan.

Heat until the bottom gets nicely browned/caramelized, then flip over and repeat.

Place slices on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, lightly covered with tin foil, and place in a 250° oven until ready to serve.

Place a dollop of whipped cream and maple syrup on top and serve!

For extra decadence, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips!
