September- Banana French Toast with Peach Compote

September- Banana French Toast with Peach Compote

The fall is one of my favorite seasons. Primarily for the crispness in the air and the abundance of fresh local fruit and produce.  A big basket of fresh peaches often never goes to waste and this is a great recipe to use up those peaches that are starting to go soft.  This is a fun, somewhat decedent brunch that impresses weekend guests or as a family treat.

3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 ripe banana
dash of cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
6-7 slices of bread

3 large ripe peaches, chopped
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp brown sugar

Add eggs, milk, banana, cinnamon and vanilla to a blender.  Blend until smooth and transfer to large dish.  Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium until hot.  Dip bread into egg mixture and cook until done.

In a separate pan, melt butter and add sugar.  Once dissolved add peaches and cook over medium-low heat while the remainder of the french toast cooks.

Peach Compote

Serve warm on its own or with a dusting of icing sugar or topped with chopped walnuts.  Enjoy!
