  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • ground cinnamon, to serve
  • icing sugar or extra maple syrup, to serve (optional)


  1. Slice the banana into a small bowl and mash using a fork. Add the chopped chocolate and mix to combine.

  2. Lay 2 slices of bread on the work surface. Divide the chocolate and banana mixture between them, spreading it almost to the edges. Top each with a second slice of bread and press together to make a sandwich.

  3. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, double cream, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Lay one sandwich into the egg mixture to coat one side, then carefully flip it over so that both sides of the sandwich are soaked in the egg. Lower the sandwich into the hot frying pan and cook for about 1 min on each side, until golden brown and the chocolate has started to melt. Repeat with the second sandwich. Cut the sandwiches in half to serve and sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon and either icing sugar or extra maple syrup if you’re feeling super-indulgent.

Delicious recipe. I used half the amount of chocolate, had to substitute maple syrup for golden syrup and used a home-made wholewheat bread. I would use only 2 eggs next time as had quite a bit leftover. Scrumptious, thank you!

This is a great recipe, I must say I changed it slightly - only made one sandwich and used 1/2 a banana, a spoon of cocoa powder, a spoon of peanut butter and some golden syrup for the filling but thanks for the idea!

Just made this for a special birthday treat for my husband. Absolutely delicious!! Didn't have any maple syrup but I think it was sweet enough!

Well, I think if 2 people had eaten this for breakfast it might have finished them off. I'm all for a bit of heart-attack inducing "indulgence" but this was a bit too much. The first couple of mouthfuls were nice, though. I did three sandwiches instead of two (for five of us) and found that I still had a fair bit of eggy mixture leftover, so would scale down the quantities a bit if I did it again. But I probably won't.... :-)
