We ate so many pancakes and waffles over the last year that I have started adding french toast into the mix more often - as well as some more healthy options of course.
This is your traditional french toast (see recipe here - minus the stuffing part) but instead of adding maple syrup I added a couple of teaspoons of butter brandy and some finely chopped bananas; perfect for a Christmas breakfast.
Brandy butter, for those of you who are not British, is traditional used at christmas time and added to mince pies of Christmas pudding - instead of cream or ice cream. It is delicious and add a nice kick to the sweetness of the french toast. You can buy it a M&S and Waitrose, or you can make it yourself (it is dead easy).
