Banana Pecan French Toast with Caramel Drizzle

You want breakfast? Here is a very tasty decadent breakfast that was fun to make and very easy to do with just a few ingredients. I had the ingredients in the house and just made this up yesterday morning for my hungry family who wanted something just a bit different for breakfast.



Banana Pecan French Toast with Caramel Drizzle

8 slices thick french bread or sourdough
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter
3 bananas
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
caramel sauce (I used Smucker's Caramel Sauce Ice Cream Topping for the drizzle
Garnish with whip cream

Beat 3 eggs in a bowl; add milk and vanilla, beat well. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees and spray with cooking spray. Dip both sides of each slice of french toast and put on griddle, cook until golden brown on both sides.

Slice bananas and mix with lemon juice in a bowl (the lemon juice prevents the bananas from turning brown). In a saute pan, melt butter. Add bananas and pecans, saute for about 2 minutes until bananas are hot.

Put french toast on a plate, put some banana/pecan mixture on, drizzle with caramel sauce and then top with whip cream and a few more pecans. Enjoy!

Oh my god the most deadly photograph, it looks like a banoffee pie that i'm particularly partial to. We don't have pecans here so I shall use peanuts and roasted cashew nuts instead.

But I also have another question how in heavens does one make caramel sauce? In India, one has to make everything, not much comes out of a packet or a tin and even if it does, it tastes quite nasty, and the thought of hunting down caramel sauce is far too exhausting, it's quicker to just make it oneself, so please tell me a recipe for caramel sauce.
thanks
