I think IHOP is known for their creativity when it comes to filling breakfast dishes. Often we have used different breads at home to make cinnamon toast, but who would have thought to use banana bread? Then we’re going to top this with caramel sauce, sliced bananas, and a bit of whipped cream. Nothing screams special Sunday breakfast like the IHOP Banana Bread French Toast.
CopyKat.com’s IHOP® Banana Bread French Toast
- 2 large eggs, divided
- 2 tablespoons milk, divided
- 4 slices banana bread
- 1 banana, sliced
- 4 teaspoons butter
- 4 tablespoons caramel sauce
- whipped cream
- freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and the milk. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon of butter for each slice of banana bread being cooked in the skillet at one time. Dip each slice of banana bread in the egg mixture to coat evenly; flip the slice over to coat the other side. Cook in the hot skillet for about 1 minute on each side. Place 2 cooked slices on each plate and add half the banana slices. Drizzle with caramel sauce and then top with whipped cream and, if desired, a grating of nutmeg.
