Author's Notes

To keep your French Toast from getting soggy, the best tip is to start with bread that is 2 or 3 days old or oven-dry the bread. Fresh and tender bread will soak up too much of the custard and you’ll end up with soggy slices.

To oven-dry, the bread, place the bread slices on a baking sheet and bake in a 275 degrees F (140 degrees C) oven for about 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the thickness of the bread) flipping the slices at least once for even drying.

The alcohol in the rum burns off when you simmer the sauce, making this French toast recipe kid friendly! If you prefer to stay away from spirits, you can substitute rum extract for flavor. You can also substitute another liquor, such as bourbon or brandy. I use dark rum, but white rum can also be used.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
Step 2
Prepare the Custard. In a large shallow bowl or pie plate, whisk the Large Eggs (4) and egg yolks until frothy and well combined.
Step 3
Add Granulated Sugar (3 1/2 Tbsp) , Dark Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) , and Ground Nutmeg (1/4 tsp) , and continue whisking until well combined. Add Heavy Cream (2/3 cup) , Pure Vanilla Extract (1/2 Tbsp) , and Dark Rum (1 Tbsp) , and whisk until well combined.
Step 4
In a pan or griddle, melt a few tablespoons of the Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) in a large skillet over medium heat.
Step 5
Prepare the french toast. Dip each slice of Brioche (8 slices) into the egg mixture, making sure both sides are evenly coated (do not let the bread soak in the custard mixture). Place brioche slices into skillet and sprinkle tops with Cinnamon Sugar (to taste) . Cook until the undersides are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 6
Flip and sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar. Continue cooking on the other side until equally golden brown, about another 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 7
Remove the cooked toast slices from the pan and place them on a baking sheet in your preheated oven while you work on the next batch. Work quickly, as they will begin to dry out after 20 minutes or so. Also, don’t cover while in the oven, as you don’t want the French toast to get soggy.
Step 8
Repeat with remaining bread, adding more butter to the pan as needed.
Step 9
Prepare the bananas foster sauce. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt the Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) . Add in the Dark Brown Sugar (3/4 cup) and Pure Maple Syrup (1/2 cup) , continue to and cook, whisking until the sugar has melted and the mixture is bubbling and starting to thicken about 5 minutes.
Step 10
Add in the Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp) , Heavy Cream (1/2 cup) , Pure Vanilla Extract (1/2 Tbsp) , and Salt (1/4 tsp) , and whisk to combine. Using a silicone spatula, fold in the Pecans (1 cup) and stir until completely coated.
Step 11
Fold in the Bananas (2) and gently stir until evenly coated. Cook for 1 minute. Be sure not to overcook here, or your bananas will become mushy.
Step 12
Remove the pan from heat and stir in the Dark Rum (2 1/2 Tbsp) . Return the pan to the heat and cook for another minute to burn off the alcohol, leaving you with just a perfect rum taste.
Step 13
Remove warm French Toast from the oven and place it on a platter. Pour Bananas Foster Sauce on top and serve immediately! Optionally, serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, or additional sliced bananas and pecans.
