When I saw this recipe, my mouth immediately began to water. In fact, it’s still watering as I write this.
Are you familiar with cake bites? One of the baking babes that started the cake bite craze is from the blog, Bakerella. I’ve never made any of her cake bites but I have made this cake from her blog and it was a fan favorite — so much so that I’ve actually made it twice! If you like peanut butter and chocolate, I would recommend baking this bad boy. And Because I had such success in baking that recipe, I trust her and know that the recipes she posts on her blog are the crem de la crem! So, I’m excited to try this one:
1 small loaf french bread
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large banana
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
- Coat six 4 oz. ramekins with non-stick spray.
- Cut french bread into 18 slices. Cut them about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick. Make sure three will fit in each dish easily.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until blended.
- Place sliced bread in bowl to coat.
- Place three slices of bread into each dish.
- Cut banana into 12 or more slices. Coat slices with mixture and then dip coated bananas in 2 tablespoons brown sugar and stuff in between bread.
- Transfer dishes to a baking sheet. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.
- When you are ready to bake, mix together remaining 4 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle over bread.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.
- Enjoy warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
- Makes six.
MAN OH MAN! Don’t those look decadent and delicious and sweet and savory.. and.. and… I sure do wish I had that many mini ramekins, but since I don’t I could always try baking this in a casserole dish and it would be multiple portions. I’m going to try making it this weekend for a Saturday brunch! YUM Can’t wait!
Thanks for reading! Enjoy!
