Ingredients for glazed banana French toast
4 tablespoons low-fat milk
1 teaspoon honey
large pinch of ground cinnamon
8 small slices wholemeal bread
2 teaspoons sunflower oil
2 large bananas
1/4 cup (30 g) icing sugar
pinch of ground cinnamon
fresh mint leaves
Preparation for glazed banana French toast
1 Preheat the grill. In a shallow dish, gently whisk together the eggs, milk, honey and cinnamon.
2 Trim the top and bottom crusts off the bread, if very crusty.
3 Heat a non-stick frying pan and brush with a little of the oil. Quickly dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture to moisten on both sides, then put it into the hot pan. Cook for 1–2 minutes, or until pale golden brown on both sides. You may need to cook the bread slices in two batches, brushing the pan with a little more oil when necessary. As the bread is done, transfer to the grill pan.
4 Peel the bananas and cut into thin diagonal slices, arranging them on the bread slices to cover generously. Mix the icing sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the bananas. Place under the grill to melt the sugar and glaze the fruit.
5 Sprinkle a little icing sugar over a few mint leaves and use to serve the French toast. Serve immediately.
