I made this for my mother on Mother's Day. She loved it. If you like Banana Bread then this is a great recipe. It puts a kick on French Toast. The condensed milk made it taste Great. I added a few walnuts on top along with the powdered sugar. I suggest not putting as much powdered sugar as you would on regular French toast...It might be too sweet.

I can't say it was bad, I guess I like regular french toast better.

I made this recipe on Christmas morning because I needed to use up a partial can of sweetened condensed milk. Delicious -- what a treat! I used a homemade loaf of sour cream banana bread and cut it into about 3/4" slices rather than quarters.

I wanted to test this so that if we have some banana bread around that's getting a little old, we have some way to use it. :) What I did: I didn't want to open a can of sweetened condensed milk for a couple tablespoons (I did a 2/3 size batch), so I used milk plus some sugar instead. I whisked the milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla together, then stuck the bowl in the fridge for a bit while eating dinner. I cut two slices about 3/4 to 1-inch thick, dipped, fried, ate. Yum! I put a little Country Crock on the end product, the icing sugar was unnecessary (already very sweet). Thanks for a great snack idea!

We had seen this at IHOP and thought we'd try it at home since we had a loaf of banana bread to use. I used regular milk and diluted the eggs more than the recipe called for based on personal preference (my husband isn't a big fan of eggs!!) :) I added a little cinnamon to the batter as well. It only needed a little confectioners sugar, and was very good! Rich, and very tasty. I added a little fresh banana slices to top them off.

This recipe is wonderful! Like another reviewer, I used milk and sugar instead of condensed milk. This is going to become a weekend staple in our home.

What an inventive idea! LBR8, you rock! This has become a family stable in our house, my 7yo loves this! (In pictured photo, I used banana bread baked in coffee cans, that is why it is round). I don't use the Eagle Brand, either, I use reg. milk.

I love banana bread and french toast, so it was only natural that I try this recipe. The condensed milk really made the recipe - the batter stuck on really well. This dish is also great cold with fresh sliced strawberries on top. The only advice I have is to not slice the bread too thick, as the batter cooks up fairly quickly.
