Pound Cake French Toast with Caramelized Bananas - the most decadent French toast! And you won't believe how easy it is!

I feel like the older I get (or perhaps the more kids/dogs I have), the easier I want cooking to be.

I no longer have the time to spend all day in the kitchen making everything from scratch. You guys, there was a time that I actually made yogurt. MADE YOGURT. Who has time for that?

Not me.

So I’m always looking for delicious shortcuts to make my life easier.

I picked up some Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake at Walmart recently. You guys already know I love the All Butter Pound Cake. Remember those fantastic Caramel Apple Shortcakes that I made in the fall?

The. Best.

This time I used it to make the most delicious and yet so easy breakfast!

The pound cake thaws in the microwave in just 10 seconds per serving which makes it get for quick desserts or breakfasts like this!

So I sliced it thin and then dipped it in an egg mixture, just like regular French toast. While I was doing that, I cooked some bananas in butter and brown sugar so they got all caramelized and delicious. And then I topped it all with whipped cream and maple syrup.

It was perfection. And this is the kind of meal that seems really impressive because WHOA! Caramelized bananas!

But seriously, so simple!

And the Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake just makes the most perfect French toast. It’s moist, the texture is perfect, and it’s made with the finest quality butter and eggs so it tastes great too!
