Brioche French Toast with Bruleed Banana

Jacob Leung

Ingredients:

Serves: 4

  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • 8 thick slices of brioche
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 40g butter
  • 2 lady finger bananas
  • 2 Tablespoons caster sugar
  • 160g unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup pistachios, chopped
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Edible flowers to garnish
  • Ice cream to serve

Method:

  1. Evenly spread the Nutella over 4 slices of the brioche. Top with the remaining slices of brioche.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla. Dip the brioche sandwiches in the egg mix and allow to soak for 2 minutes.
  3. In a frypan over medium heat add butter. Once the butter has melted and starts to bubble add one brioche sandwich. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches until all cooked.
  4. While the french toast is cooking, slice the bananas lengthways with the skin on. Evenly sprinkle with caster sugar and, using a blow torch, brulee the top of each banana until the sugar melts and crystallizes. Alternatively place the bananas under a grill on high for 6 minutes.
  5. To serve, place a piece of french toast on a serving plate alongside half a bruleed banana. Top with chopped pistachios, maple syrup, edible flowers and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
