How To Make Brown Sugar Toast

A cross between French toast & a brulee. To make brown sugar toast, we mix together brown sugar & butter then spread this over slices of bread, in this case brioche. We then toast the buttered bread in a frying pan until both sides are caramelised nicely.

The Bread

As we’re making this toast for breakfast, we are using a sweet, enriched loaf of brioche. You could also use a loaf of white bread but I’d going for a brioche.

I went for a pre sliced loaf of brioche for this recipe but if you have an unsliced one, you’ll want to cut it into 1-2cm thick slices.

Roasted Banana Butter

This butter is insanely good!

To make this, we first need to brown some butter then leave it in the fridge to firm up. To learn how to make brown butter, my guide can be found here – How To Make Brown Butter.

The next stage is to slice each banana in half then coat it in butter, brown sugar & a splash of rum. This is then roasted until the bananas are soft & caramelised. We then blitz this into a puree & leave to cool.

To bring the butter together, we beat the chilled brown butter with some vanilla in a stand mixer until smooth then mix in the roasted banana puree.

The butter is now finished & can served immediately or stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure to bring it back to room temperature before serving!

    Start by browning the 160g of butter over a medium heat. Once browned, stir in the toasted milk powder then transfer to a bowl & leave to cool to room temperature. Once cool, place the butter into a fridge to firm up, this will take around an hour.
  • Preheat an oven to 180°c.
  • Peel the bananas then slice each in half lengthways then in half again the other way. Place into an ovenproof dish then add in the butter, light brown sugar & rum. Give everything a good stir then bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until nicely caramelised.
    Leave to cool to room temperature then use a jug blender to blitz to a smooth puree. Set aside in the fridge until the brown butter has firmed up.
  • Next, place the chilled brown butter & vanilla paste into the bowl of a stand mixer & use the paddle attachment to beat until light & smooth. Add in the banana puree & mix to combine.
    This can be served immediately or stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Brown Sugar Toast.
    Mix together the softened butter & the dark brown sugar.
    To cook the toast, take a slice of brioche & coat one side with a generous amount of the butter & sugar mix.
    Place the brioche, butter side down into a frying pan set over a medium heat then coat the other side of the brioche with the same amount of butter. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until crispy & a deep golden brown.
    Repeat with the remaining brioche & butter then serve with the roasted banana butter.

Notes

If Using An Aga.
Roast the bananas in the centre of the baking oven.
The banana butter can be made ahead of time & kept in the fridge. Make sure to soften it to room temperature before serving. – The key to a good roche of butter is a hot spoon & room temperature butter.
The banana butter is made with brown butter. My recipe for this can be found here.
