Make Mother's Day Extra Special; Toasted Brioche with Bananas & Caramel Sauce Recipe from Cafe Sicilia

Toasted Brioche with Bananas and Caramel Sauce


  • 4 slices brioche bread
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Whipped cream
  • 4 tbsp Nutella chocolate spread
  • 4 small ripe bananas, halved lengthways
  • 4 tbsp toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Caramel sauce (homemade or store bought)



Melt the butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the banana halves cut side down. Fry until lightly browned. Flip the bananas and fry the other side. In the meantime, toast the brioche bread. Spread Nutella on the warm bread.

Place 2 banana halves on each slice of toasted brioche. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top. Garnish with whipped cream and walnuts.

Ingredients: Caramel Sauce

  • ¾ c. sugar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp butter cut into cubes
  • 6 tbsp heavy cream a room temperature



Place the sugar and water into a 1-quart saucepan (NOT nonstick). Heat on medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Swirl the mixture in the saucepan occasionally to ensure even melting.  Cook until the sugar is a deep gold color.

Remove from the heat and add the butter. Stir until butter has melted. Add the cream, stir until creamy and smooth.

Buon Appetito!
