1 loaf French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes

3 large bananas, sliced

1 cup pecans, chopped

8 large eggs

2 cups whole milk

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Maple syrup for serving

Powdered sugar for garnish


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

Arrange half of the bread cubes in a greased baking dish.

Layer sliced bananas and half of the chopped pecans over the bread.

Top with the remaining bread cubes and pecans.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

Pour the mixture evenly over the bread, pressing the bread cubes slightly to absorb the liquid.

Let it sit for 15 minutes to soak.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.

Serve warm with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
