Banana Raisin French Toast

Banana Raisin French Toast

Banana stuffed French toast is super easy to make in this oven-baked recipe. There’s no tricky bread pocket to slice and stuff. Just layer sliced bananas between raisin bread in a casserole dish then drench in a cream cheese custard and bake to a creamy-on-the-inside, crunchy-on-the-outside French toast. Prepare it the night before or a few hours ahead then bake just before serving. With bananas and raisins it’s a double-fruit French Toast ready when you are. Serve with fresh strawberries and a side of bacon or sausage if you like. Pretty and simple for Easter brunch or any day!

    I’m going to sprinkle the bananas with cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg.

      Excellent addition, Rita! I’m going add that as optional in the recipe now.

    I’ve always been a French toast person versus a pancake person, and this sounds amazing, what with the raisins and bananas and all! Perhaps even better is that it needs no standing over the stove. Adding it to my bucket list. 🙂

      I agree Jill. For a crowd it’s great. And it feels so smart to take from the fridge ready for the oven.
