  • 3 tbsp honey

  • 2 small bananas, thickly sliced
  • 1 large egg
  • 300ml milk
  • 4 thick slices of white bread
  • 2 tbsp butter

Choosing the bread

Use a thick, hand-sliced loaf for this recipe. If using pre-sliced bread, soak it for half the time stated in the method.


  1. Simmer the honey, cinnamon and ground cardamom in a pan and swirl until golden. Add the bananas and toss.

  2. Beat the egg with the milk in a dish, add the bread and soak for 1 min, turning once.

  3. Fry in the butter over a medium heat for 4 mins, flip and cook for 4 mins more, until golden on both sides. Top with the bananas and the whipped cream, if you like.
