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
15 ml cream
5g Caster Sugar
2 ml Vanilla essence ( Bush will do)
10g Unsalted butter
10g Caster Sugar
10g Callebaut Dark Chocolate callets
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
