Vanilla French Toast with Chocolate & Banana Filling
200g bittersweet chocolate (I used Lindt)
2 medium bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 or 2 tbsp sugar (keep in mind the chocolate is already sweet)
1 tbsp whipping cream
2 slices white bread
Butter, for greasing the pan
Pinch of salt
For the chocolate and banana filling:
Melt chocolate and butter in a heat proof bowl over lightly simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the base of bowl (Or u can use a double boiler). Once melted and smooth, set it aside to cool for a bit. Add mashed bananas and stir until well incorporated. Put the mixture in the fridge for about 15 minutes or so to firm up.
For the french toast:
Crack eggs into a bowl. Add vanilla, sugar, salt, cream and beat well. Heat pan over medium heat. Grease with generous amount of butter. Dip bread slices in egg mixture until well coated. Allow the bread to soak the mixture. Shallow fry the bread until golden brown.
Spread the filling on one side of the bread, top with another slice, cut them diagonally and dust with icing sugar.
