Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toast the bread, spread with butter and cut each slice into 6 equal pieces. Arrange, butter side up, with the banana in a microwavable dish (approx 23cm wide by 5cm deep).

  • STEP 2

    Beat together the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and milk in a jug. In a small bowl, add the cornflour with a little of the milk, mix until smooth, then stir into the jug. Pour over the bread and banana, then sprinkle with the extra sugar. Bake, uncovered, in the microwave on High for 8-10 mins. Stand for 5 mins before serving.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE IT IN THE OVEN

If you don’t have a microwave, assemble the dish without toasting the bread beforehand. Bake at 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 for 30-40 mins until the egg mixture has set and the bread has turned golden and crisp.

CHOCOLATE AND ORANGE FLAVOUR

Toast 4 thick slices bread, spread with 50g butter and 4 tbsp marmalade. Cut each slice into 6 equal pieces and arrange the bread, butter side up, with 85g roughly chopped dark chocolate and 50g chopped mixed peel in a microwavable dish (23cm wide by 5cm deep). Make the custard, as previous recipe, omitting the cinnamon, then continue with the rest of the recipe. Serve with a sprinkling of icing sugar and ice cream.
