6 servings

8 to 12 slices white bread
3 St. Lucian (small Caribbean) bananas sliced crosswise & mashed
3 eggs
1//4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
vegetable or deep frying oil
1 tbsp sugar
2/3 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and mashed bananas.
  2. In another bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Let the bread soak up in the mixture of egg, milk, vanilla and mash banana.
  4. Fry the bread, turning it once, until it is slightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  5. Drain the slices on paper towel.
  6. Sprinkle them with sugar-cinnamon mixture and serve them at once.

They are best served with pure maple syrup – which is sometimes hard to obtain on the island. We suggest you bring a small bottle with you! You will be glad you did!
