  •  1 banana
  •  75g milk chocolate, chopped
  •  4 slices crusty bread
  •  3 eggs
  •  1 tbsp cream
  •  1 tbsp maple syrup
  •  1 tsp vanilla essence
  •  25g unsalted butter
  •  ground cinnamon, to serve
  •  icing sugar or maple syrup, to serve

Slice the banana into a small bowl and mash using a fork. Add the chopped chocolate and mix to combine. Lay 2 slices of bread on the work surface. Divide the chocolate and banana mixture between them, spreading it almost to the edges. Top each with a second slice of bread and press together to make a sandwich. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, cream, maple syrup and vanilla essence. Melt the butter in a frying pan. Lay one sandwich into the egg mixture to coat one side, then carefully flip it over so that both sides of the sandwich are soaked in the egg. Lower the sandwich into the hot frying pan and cook for about 1 min on each side, until golden brown and the chocolate has started to melt. Repeat with the second sandwich. Cut the sandwiches in half to serve and sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon and either icing sugar or maple syrup.
