I baked a beautiful loaf of black sandwich bread, just to use in this recipe. 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; usually I just opt for free-form loaves. But for sandwich and french toast purposes, it would work better if it was in that shape. You can make your own black bread, using my basic black bread recipe - it's very easy to make.
Usually when I make french toast, i'll use a soy milk as a base. I made some recently, using The simple veganista's Banana french toast recipe. I thought the idea was brilliant - i do love bananas in my breakfasts. By the way, she has a great 'orange french toast' recipe on her blog - you should make that too.
Using bananas, makes for a more consistent morning meal. Most french toast recipes add nutmeg and cinnamon, but I prefer to just taste the fruit - Devine isn't a huge nutmeg fan anyway.
Made these on a weekday, tuesday morning french toast is great - fun breakfasts shouldn't only be reserved for weekends.
