Bananas Foster French Toast

It's giving decadent, sensational, sinful greatness! This french toast recipe features fluffy brioche, notes of cinnamon, and the main attraction of it all...caramelized bananas! While the dark rum does give it that bananas foster PUNCH, it can be made non-boozy. This french toast pairs perfectly with chopped walnuts and for my extra sinful foodies, pair it with whipped cream. I know y'all are going to love this recipe, foodies. Happy cooking!
