(serves 4)

Ingredients
16 pieces good quality bread (organic sourdough recommended)
Softened butter (to cover bread)
2 large eggs 
1/8 tsp cardamom powder (optional)1/2 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp cinnamon powder + extra to serve (verum recommended)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder                  
1/2 tsp dulse flakes (optional)
3/4 cup milk
Small pinch vanilla powder
3 bananas, mashed
1 tbsp cacao powder, sifted 
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 cup frozen blueberries or berries of choice, thawed
1 tbsp butter, divided
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil, divided
 
To serve
Rapadura sugar 
Real cream 
 
 
To Make
 
Butter bread slices on one side and set aside.  Place eggs, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, dulse, milk and vanilla into a shallow dish and whisk well to combine.  Mash bananas well and mix in the cacao, coconut and berries until combined and set aside.  Melt a small portion of butter and coconut oil in a large fry pan over low-medium heat until foaming.  Dip a piece of bread (buttered side down) into the egg mixture and place butter side down into the fry pan.  Place a spoon of the banana mixture on the bread.  Dip a second piece of bread (buttered side down) into the egg mixture and place butter side up on top of the banana.  Cook until the underside is lovely and golden, turn and repeat on the other side.  Carefully remove from the pan to an oven safe plate and place in a very low oven to keep warm.  Repeat with remaining slices of bread, adding extra butter and coconut oil as required to prevent sticking.  Serve on warmed plates sprinkled with rapadura sugar, a sprinkling of cinnamon and a dollop of real cream.
