A surefire way to revive day-old bread, this simple French toast recipe is dressed up with caramelized bananas, real maple syrup and organic ground spices.



    To make the toast

    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

    2. In a large shallow bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, cardamom and salt.

    3. Working with one slice at a time, dip bread into egg mixture and turn gently, allowing both sides to soak up mixture.

    4. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Cook slices for about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Place bread on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven to warm.

    To make the caramelized bananas

    1. Slice banana crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces.

    2. Working with the same skillet, warm remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat until melted. Add brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cinnamon, then stir until sugar has dissolved. When mixture begins to bubble around the edges, add banana slices and stir to coat.

    3. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, until bananas begin to brown.Serve French toast hot with a generous spoonful of caramelized bananas, a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkling of cinnamon and cardamom.
