Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a 4-cup measuring cup or mixing bowl.

  • Arrange 4 slices of banana bread in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Pour half of the egg mixture over the bread. Let soak for 1 minute, then turn the slices over and soak for 1 minute more.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the slices and cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining banana bread, egg mixture and butter.

  • To serve, top with walnuts, sliced banana and maple syrup, if desired.
