Baked Bananas Foster French Toast


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 bananas, sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 (12 ounce) loaf French bread, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 6 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, and pecans. Spread mixture into the bottom of the pan. Place the sliced bananas on top of the mixture in an even layer.
  2. Arrange the French bread slices in an even layer on top. You might have to trim some of the pieces to fit. Fit as many pieces as you can in a single layer.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over the French bread slices. Refrigerate for 4-12 hours (see Note).
  4. After the French toast has chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, take the French toast out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter to come closer to room temperature.
  5. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit for a couple of minutes before inverting on a serving plate. Slice and serve!

Recipe Notes

Allowing the French Toast bake to chill for a couple of hours or overnight lets the milk mixture soak in completely. To be honest though, when I've been in a hurry I've baked it right away and it's still good.

Bananas Foster often has rum in it but this recipe does not. If you want to add rum extract or rum to the milk mixture you can.
