I baked a beautiful loaf of black sandwich bread JUST to use in this recipe. I mean doesn't the idea of black french toast sound amazing? With a banana-base and topped with freshly cut kiwi slices no less!
It was my first time baking black bread in a bread pan normally I just opt for free-form loaves. But for sandwich and 'french toast' purposes I felt it would work better if it were in that shape also because I'd never done that before and wanted to see how it would turn out! You can make your own using my basic black bread recipe! It's very easy to make.
Usually when I make french toast i'll just use a soy milk as a base. I made some though recently using The simple veganista's Banana french toast recipe thought the idea was brilliant and I do love bananas in my breakfasts SO i decided to try it out! By the way she also has a great 'orange french toast' recipe.
Using bananas makes for a more consistent morning meal :>. Most french toast recipes also add nutmeg and cinnamon but honestly I prefer to just taste the fruit sometimes. Also Devine isn't a huge nutmeg fan.
The one thing about using black bread for french toast is that it wont 'brown' as easily or at least it isn't as visible. It wont ever get that 'golden' tint.
Made these on a week day tuesday morning french toast is great! Fun breakfasts shouldn't only be reserved for weekends ;).
