This recipe requires very ripe bananas.


Step 1: Beat the eggs and milk together. Add the cinnamon and lay each slice of bread in this mixture for a couple of minutes on each side so that the bread soaks up some of the liquid but doesn’t become too soggy.

Step 2: Add the butter to a frying pan and when it is sizzling, toss in the slices of banana and cook until caramelised on each side.

Step 3: Drizzle with Verjuice to deglaze. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 4: Add a little more butter to the frying pan and when it’s bubbling, gently place the bread in the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until crisp.

Step 5: Divide the bananas between each slice of French toast and dust with a little icing sugar. Serve immediately!

Maggie's Tip: Lady finger bananas do not work with this dish.
