Are you ready for the ultimate breakfast/brunch recipe?? This caramel French toast is everything you want... and then some.
I love this recipe for so many reasons. For one, it's made in the slow-cooker which has many advantages: Freed up space in my oven and on my stovetop, minimal mess and clean-up, AND I can just set it and forget it. Totally perfect for a midmorning brunch with friends or family!
Reason two: simple, classic and delicious flavors. I mean, it really doesn't get better then bananas and caramel. They are perfectly sweet together!
Reason three: I have yet to meet a person who does not fall head over heels for this French toast. It's truly an all-around winning recipe. Yes!!
Okay, so here's how we’re going to make this...
Round up your dry ingredients.
Spread some thick caramel sauce on the slices of bread. I like to use store-bought dulce de leche, but any caramel sauce that's at room temperature will work great. You can use homemade or store-bought.
Arrange the bread in your slow cooker. Top with banana slices and walnuts.
Mix together the wet ingredients and pour them over the bread, making sure the mixture coats all of the bread slices. Top with some pats of butter.
Cover and cook for 1.5 to 2 hours on High or 3-4 hours on Low.
Serve hot with warm caramel sauce or maple syrup, plus additional fresh banana slices.
