To make bread:

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk, beating until just combined.
  4. Fold in the mashed bananas.
  5. Pour batter into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 min, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool.

To prepare french toast:

  1. Once bread cools, slice it into approximately 3/4-inch slices, or about 10-12 even slices.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the whole eggs, egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, and splash of milk.
  3. Dunk each side of the bread into the egg mixture, allowing a few seconds for it to soak in.

  5. Serve with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup!
