Dinner of champions.
Some people like their birthday full of lobster tails and champagne,
some like to get dressed up for a fancy night on the town (I definitely fall into this bunch)…
some like to escape for a weekend away…
enjoy breakfast for dinner and boxed funfetti cake topped off with canned frosting.
Mike is this person.
In an attempt to “glamourize” the breakfast for dinner portion,
I took to perusing some of my favorite cooking blogs
Let me tell you…
it was absolutely delicious and could have served as dinner and dessert!
But, where would the fun be in that?!
-1 loaf Challah (2 in cubes)
-2 ripe bananas (thinly sliced)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup skim milk
-1/2 cup granulated sugar
-1/3 cup maple syrup
-1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-1 tablespoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon allspice
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon salt, optional and to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside.
2. Cut Challah into 2 inch pieces
3. Slice the two bananas, diced small
4. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add all ingredients to melted butter except bananas and bread.
6. Whisk mixture until smooth and combined.
7. Add bread cubes and banana to mixture and toss gently to coat.
8. Transfer mixture to 9 x 9 pan, pressing down slightly with spatula to even out and smooth, but leave it fairly loose.
9. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and brown and marinade has dried a bit, taking care not to over-bake as this is best enjoyed moist.
10. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
