  • 4 large eggs (220 grams)
  • 3/4 cup (180 grams) oat milk or regular whole milk, divided
  • 2 teaspoons (12 grams) pure vanilla extract, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 to 9 jumbo hot cross buns
  • 1 cup (226 grams) salted butter, divided
  • 1 cup (220 grams) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 grams) pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon (15-30 grams) rum liquor or 1 to 2 teaspoons (5-10 grams) rum extract
  • 2 ripe bananas (170 grams), sliced lengthwise and crosswise



  1. In a wide shallow dish, whisk together eggs, 1/2 cup (120 grams) milk, 1 teaspoon (6 grams) vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons (14 to 28 grams) butter.  Dip each hot cross bun slice into the egg mixture to coat both sides, one slice at a time.  Using a fork, raise each slice above the bowl to allow excess egg mixture to drip back into the dish.  Place each slice onto the hot skillet.  
  3. Cook on each side 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned.  Repeat for the remaining slices. Set aside to keep warm. 
  4. In the same large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1/2 cup (113 grams) butter and mix in brown sugar, maple syrup and 1/4 cup (60 grams) milk. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes. Mix in 1 teaspoon (6 grams) vanilla and rum to taste. 
  5. Gently add bananas, allow to simmer for 1 minute. Flip bananas and simmer for another minute.  
  6. Remove skillet from heat and spoon sauce and bananas over the hot cross bun french toast. ENJOY!
