This is not something to eat everyday ‘cause it’s kinda’ rich… but it’s really, really good.

6 slices day-old white or wheat bread
1 to 2 ripe bananas
8 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
Honey, for drizzling
4 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp dark rum (optional)*
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Butter for frying and putting on top
Powdered sugar, for topping
Maple Syrup, for topping

  • omit this ingredient when making for children.

Spread a thin layer of PB on each slice of bread
Peel banana and slice enough to cover every other piece of bread
Drizzle a small amount of honey on each piece of bread that does not have banana on it
Place honey drizzled piece of bread on top of a piece with bananas on it to make 3 sandwiches
In a shallow medium sized bowl, gently whip, by hand: eggs, cream, vanilla, rum, cinnamon, nutmeg
Heat skillet until butter melts and begins to sizzle
Dip 1 sandwich at a time into rum batter and place into skillet
Cook until golden brown (about 3 - 4 min before turning) on each side
Remove from skillet and cut in 1/2 diagonally
Top with powdered sugar, butter and maple syrup.
