Gooey Chocolate & Banana French Toast
- 4 tbsp chocolate spread
- ½ cup of cream
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 3 large eggs
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 8 slices of café style white bread or brioche toast
- 1 large banana

Place sugar, cream, cinnamon, vanilla bean paste and eggs into a bowl. Whisk until well combined.
Cut banana into 3rds and each piece into 3 lengthways (you should have 9 pieces in total)
Place a chopping board onto the bench. Dip 1 side of the bread into the egg mixture, place the dipped side down onto a chopping board. Spread the side facing up (undipped side) with chocolate spread (all the way to the edge), place 2 slices of banana on the bread.
Dip another piece of bread one sided into the egg mixture, place the un dipped side on top of the bananas, press down around the edges.
Repeat with the remaining 6 slices of bread. You should have 8 sandwiches.
Heat a large non-stick fry pan to a medium temperature, add 1Tbsp of butter into the pan.
Once the pan is hot use an egg flip to place 1 sandwich in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden. Use an egg flip to flip it oven and cook for 2-3minutes the other side.
Add a little more butter to the pan if needed and repeat step 6 for the remaining 3 sandwiches.
Cut in half on a plate and serve with lashings of maple syrup and fresh berries.
