Banana Bread French Toast

Want something different for that special Sunday morning breakfast with the family? Make your favorite banana bread the day before you want to make this special treat, I make the Creamy Banana Nut Bread that I posted back on December 13, 2011 as it is my favorite recipe for this bread. I like to serve it with a praline syrup to compliment the pecans in the bread. Husband is not overly fond of this one but I love banana nut bread cooked up this way, so he gets plain old white bread and I have mine made with this recipe right after I make my banana bread. This month is National Hot Breakfast Month and today is National Banana Bread Day, so I’m trying to kill two birds with one stone as we still have lots of work to do in the kitchen!

Today is National French Toast Day and boy does that sound good, as it’s dark, dreary and not a typical day for us Floridians and a great day for comfort food to take the chill out of the old bones! Just got back from putting in our numbers for the Power Ball tonight and if you don’t hear from me tomorrow, we’re on our way to our accountant to take care of all that money we won, YEAH! Well back to the subject on hand, I thought this would be a lovely dish to feed the family on Christmas morn after opening up all those wonderful gifts!

Yum Yum!
