Overnight Bananas Foster French Toast

Being a part of food blog groups online, has brought me some new friends, great relationships and definitely an arsenal of recipes to try.

That was the case with this incredibly delicious Overnight Bananas Foster French Toast from the blog Ilona’s Kitchen.

When I visited her blog, I discovered how many delicious treats she has on her blog.

Choosing a recipe to make was hard, and by the time we were done browsing, we had a list that was 12 recipes long. We then began narrowing down our choices, but not before we considered her Hoisin Pork with Rice Noodles, a deliciously Asian savory dish.

We will be trying it at some point, no questions asked.

When we began to browser her sweet recipes, we found her Banana Biscoff White Chocolate Chip Blondies or hello, her S’mores Popovers. OMG! See what I mean? Some incredible choices.

We finally settled on her Overnight Bananas Foster French Toast for the simple fact that we were looking for a fun breakfast dish for the following morning and this fit.

It sounded good and we had all of the ingredients on hand, and it required no trip to the store.

Never mind that it includes some of my favorite things together, bread, bananas, cinnamon and brown sugar.

I have a really delicious overnight french toast recipe already, that I swear by. And then another Overnight Pumpkin French Toast Recipe that we created a couple of years back.

Now we have this amazing recipe to add to our repertoire. It was absolutely delicious. I am absolutely positive that your family will enjoy this french toast recipe just as much as ours did.

Thank you so much for such a fabulous recipe that my entire family of 7 loved!

For the French Toast

  • 10 oz. thick bread we used thick texas toast
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons salt

For the Banana Topping:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 medium bananas sliced


  • Spray a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish lightly with cooking spray.
  • Layer the bread slices on the bottom of the dish, slight overlap is okay, but it’s better to kinda squish them all together in there.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, the cinnamon, white sugar and salt until combined and pour the whole mixture evenly over the bread.
  • Cover the dish with foil and refrigerate overnight or at least 6-8 hours.

When you’re ready to bake it:

  • Bring the french toast to room temp, by taking it out of the fridge and uncovering it for at least 30 minutes or so before baking.
  • Preheat your oven to 350° F.
  • Bake the dish uncovered on the middle rack until golden, about 40 minutes or so.
  • About 10 minutes before it is ready, melt butter on the stovetop on low heat.
  • Add the brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Add the sliced bananas and remove from heat. Keep warm and covered until the french toast is ready.
  • Once the french toast is cooked, serve on plates topped with the bananas and sauce.
