  1. Peel and slice the bananas, mash with the maple syrup and set aside. Place the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a wide, shallow bowl and whisk to combine.

  2. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Using a sharp knife, slice open each slice of brioche from the top to form a pocket, leaving at least 1cm around the edges. Stuff the pockets with the banana mix. Soak the stuffed brioche in the egg mix for 30 secs on each side.

  3. In a large non-stick pan, melt half the butter. When sizzling, place the brioche in the pan and fry for 2 mins each side until golden. You may have to do this in batches. Transfer to the oven to warm through for 5 mins. Serve drizzled with extra maple syrup and a spoonful of vanilla yogurt.

36g of sugar and 21g of saturated fats! Are you actively trying to kill us all? I would like to see the nutrition data given the normal traffic-light colourings.

Tried this as a treat for breakfast last weekend. Yum! Didn't take long to prepare and was a delicious, indulgent way to start the day to help us to recover from a disturbed night's sleep thanks to our 5 month baby girl!
