Pain Perdu + Brûlée Banana

This is what Sunday binge dreams are made of! A chance recipe I came up with when I wanted to do a slightly special breakfast in Goa, this is foolproof and the little surprise inside goes a loooong way!
  • Leftover Brioche slices
  • 2 Eggs 
  • 15 ml cream
  • 5g Caster Sugar
  • 2 ml Vanilla essence ( Bush will do)
  • 10g Unsalted butter
  • 2 bananas
  • 10g Caster Sugar
  • Nutella
  • 10g Callebaut Dark Chocolate callets
  • Powdered Sugar
  • In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, vanilla cream and 5g caster sugar.
  • Spread nutella on one side of 2 brioche slices.
  • Finely slice a banana and place it on the nutella side of a brioche slice.
  • Cover with the second nutella slathered brioche. You will be left with a banana Nutella sandwich.
  • Dip this sandwich into the egg mixture and make sure all sides are properly coated.
  • In a pan, melt the butter and cook the pain Perdu until crisp and brown
  • Slice the second banana lengthways with the skin intact. Cook 1/2 the banana in the same pan with the leftover butter till soft.
  • Drizzle 10g of caster sugar on 1/2 the cooked banana.
  • With a blow torch, melt the sugar on the banana till it resembles crème brûlée - crispy and dark brown.
  • On a plate, place the pain perdu, slice it into two triangles, place the Brûlée banana next to it.
  • Melt some nutella and drizzle it on top of the Pain perdu
  • Sift some powdered sugar on the whole plate.
