3Separately, beat whipping cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into chilled banana puree.
4For French Toast: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla.
5Melt butter or margarine on a griddle or in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
6Working in batches, soak bread completely on both sides in the egg mixture. Add to griddle/skillet and cook until browned; turn and brown other side. Place completed French Toast slices on a serving plate and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining slices.
7Top toast with dollops of Banana Cream. Serve with warm maple syrup, if desired.
