Homemade Banana Bread French Toast

I made this breakfast a few years back when I didn’t have white bread in the house but Banana bread from the day before. So I thought why not use the banana bread for french toast and that’s how banana bread french toast become famous in my home for the weekends. Who can resist maple syrup, and melting butter lingering over the layers of thick banana bread waiting to be consumed on a weekend? My family 🙂 Please visit www.ellensapple.com for more recipes.
