How to Make French Toast Without Eggs But With Banana and Coconut

Who invented it?

Perhaps the Swiss, who call it "Fotzelschnitte"?
Or the Americans, for whom a brunch without "French toast" would be inconceivable?
It could have been the Germans. "Poor knights," they say.
The French will object, because we invented "Pain Perdu"!
The Brazilians were probably not, although the name "Rabanada" promises delicious.
Or was it the Laotians with their "Bombay Toast"?

How to Make French Toast Without Eggs But With Banana and Coconut

It is first mentioned in texts from the Middle Ages. Formerly a popular fasting dish, it later became known as poor people's food. Today, French toast is usually served for breakfast or as a sweet snack. What has never changed, however, are the basic ingredients. Eggs, milk, and stale bread. For vegan varieties, vegetable milk is often mixed with flour, starch, or tofu as an egg substitute. Not bad, but this version with banana and coconut flakes beats everything.

French toast for two persons:

  • 1/2 baguette from the day before
  • 1 large banana, almost overripe
  • 200 ml milk or coconut milk
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • about 4 tbsp coconut flakes
  • Alsan and rapeseed oil for frying

Cut the baguette into thumb-thick slices. Peel the banana, cut into small pieces, and puree them together with milk and salt. Whisk the starch with part of the banana milk without lumps, then mix everything together. Place the baguette slices side by side in a casserole dish and pour the banana milk over them.

Soak for ten minutes, then turn the slices and let them steep for another five to ten minutes. Heat Alsan and rapeseed oil in equal parts in a large pan. Sprinkle the coconut flakes on both sides of the baguette slices. Fry on each side over medium heat until golden brown. Serve with speculoosugar, cinnamon-sugar, maple syrup, or muscat syrup.

If the slices are still light golden, sprinkle them with sugar in the pan. Turn around and fry briefly until it smells wonderful. Sprinkle the second side with sugar and caramelize it as well.
