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 toastPreheat oven to 325 degrees.

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

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

    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

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

    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.

    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.
