Banana French Toast Cupcake Recipe Recipe

Pain perdu (French toast) is my way to save day-old bread but today I added a twist to my plain recipe. I turned it into pain perdu cupcakes and flavored them with bananas and figs. To give them a unique flavoring, I used fennel seeds, which pair incredibly well with the ripe fruits. 

I'm preparing for an upcoming food project these days (I'll tell you more about it soon) that requires focusing on bread, so we end up with loads of untouched baguettes. Given my aversion to waste, this dessert hits the spot. Pain perdu literally translates to "lost bread” and I can assure you that none of it was lost!

We're hosting a casual gathering with family friends today. I think cupcakes are the best ending to such an evening. I prepared butter-y mini-cupcakes made with a very light lemon-flavored genoise cake batter. To reinforce the flavor, I topped the cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting.

I love serving and eating cupcakes. You can make them for any occasion and they're an informal way to end a meal or to enjoy just as a snack.

Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Baking banana cupcakes is my way of using the ripe bananas that have been sitting in our fruit bowl. Our family eats a lot of bananas but I think this week we went a little over-board, so we had some leftover that were turning black. I mashed the bananas with a little lemon juice and used it as a flavoring for cupcakes. I added crème fraîche (you could use sour cream) so the cake batter was very moist.

I frosted the cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and decorated them with sprinkles I recently bought at Target. Easter is coming soon, so why not prepare some cute sweet treats!

My husband Lulu is leaving for a 4-day business trip, so I packed a cupcake and a little message to satisfy his sweet tooth and let him know that his wife is thinking about him and misses him. What can I do, I'm a true romantic!

I flavored the cupcakes with blackberry frosting and decorated the top with sugar roses made from pandan-flavored marzipan and fresh blackberries. This might sound a little cheesy but I think the main ingredient is love. With that, even the worst disasters (I’ll tell you about mine some time) turn out ok. Have fun preparing for Valentine's Day!
