Lyle's banana, pecan and cinnamon french toast_page

This sweet sandwich with sliced banana, chopped pecans and Lyle’s Golden Syrup is perfect for a morning treat. Tastes even better with a side of yoghurt!

4 medium size bananas, peeled and thinly sliced
125 g [4,4 oz] of pecan nuts, roughly chopped
4 tbsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup, plus extra to drizzle
2 tsp cinnamon
8 slices white or wholemeal bread
6 large eggs
2 dl [0,4 pt] milk
Natural or Greek yoghurt, to serve


[1] Gently mix together the bananas, pecan nuts, Lyle’s Golden Syrup and cinnamon. Divide between 4 pieces of bread, leaving a small gap along the edges. Top with the remaining bread to make 4 sandwiches. Press lightly to hold in place.

[2] Beat together the eggs and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture leaving to soak for a few moments each side.

[3] Heat the butter in a large saucepan over a medium and fry each sandwich for about 4 minutes until golden, turning halfway through. You will probably need to do this in batches, depending on the size of your frying pan.

[4] Cut each piece of French toast in half and serve with a spoonful of yoghurt and plenty of Lyle’s Golden Syrup drizzled over the top.
