Banana Bread French Toast with Cream Cheese Frosting

Yesterday I was 5 pounds lighter. You know, before I created this Banana Bread French Toast with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe. I’m a blueberry pancakes or Sausage and Egg Breakfast Skillet kind of girl. I’ve never been a big fan of waffles or french toast, but this Banana Bread French Toast with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe has me doubting my breakfast choices for the last 30-ish years.

So I’m now tumbling down. Cream Cheese Recipes will do that to a gal.

If I’ve been wrong about french toast all these years what else have I been wrong about? Surely the purple glitter sweater dress I rocked in 5th grade was awesome, right? Sigh.

Just like my purple sweater dress, this recipe will become a classic. It uses my perfect banana bread recipe as a base. Or you can amp it up and use cream cheese banana bread. You can make the bread the day before so it’s ready to go come morning, if you’re not a morning person like I am. <<<UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR!

The recipe below starts off once you’ve made the loaf of banana bread. Kick it up a knock by serving it with a Beermosa.

  • 1 Banana Bread Loaf
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon + 1/4 tsp. for frosting
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg + 1/4 tsp. for frosting
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese (Room Temperature)
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Banana (Mashed)
  • 1 tsp Crushed Walnuts (Optional)
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional)


  • In a small bowl, whip the cream cheese, maple syrup, vanilla extract, banana, cinnamon and nutmeg (1/4 tsp. each) until completely combined. You can fold in crushed walnuts, if desired. Taste and adjust ingredients to your taste (some like a ton of maple syrup – while others, not so much). Set aside.
  • Slice the banana bread into 8-10 hearty slices.
  • In a large bowl, whip the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract together until completely combined.
  • Put a large skillet on the stove and heat to medium.
  • Once the skillet is pre-heated, dip a slice of banana bread into the egg mixture. Let it sit for about 15 seconds to soak up the mixture. Place the egg covered banana bread slice onto the skillet and cook about 1 minute per side. Repeat until all the slices are cooked.
  • Serve on a plate and layer on the cream cheese frosting and powdered sugar!
