    Not only do I have the recipe but also a video showing you how to make the delicious Tonga Toast



    Serves 4

    INGREDIENTS

    Sugar-Cinnamon Ingredients:

    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon

    Batter Ingredients:

    4 large eggs
    1 1/3 cup whole milk
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    Tonga Toast Ingredients:

    1 quart canola oil, for frying
    1 loaf sourdough bread (uncut, 12 inches long)
    2 large bananas, peeled

    INSTRUCTIONS

    For cinnamon-sugar:

    Mix sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl (large enough to roll toast) with a fork until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

    For batter:

    Whip eggs in medium bowl (large enough to dip toast) until well beaten. Add milk, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix well and set aside.

    For Tonga toast:

    1. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F in a large pot or a deep fryer. (If using a large pot, use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter or it will burn.)
    2. Slice the bread into four three-inch-thick slices.
    3. Cut each banana in half crosswise, then each piece lengthwise.
    4. Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle (do not tear all the way through) to stuff half a banana into; repeat with each bread slice.
    5. Dip stuffed bread into batter, covering both sides, allowing excess batter to drip off bread and place carefully into hot oil.
    6. Cook 4-5 minutes until golden brown. If needed, turn toast over after 2 minutes and cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove and drain excess oil.
    7. Roll toast in cinnamon-sugar. Repeat for each piece of toast.

    Way, way, WAY too much work! If I'm going to have it, I'll let Disney do the cooking.

    (It's too much on the sweet side for me).

    I love Tonga Toast

    I'm very tempted to cook it at home, but I'm supposed to be being good

    I've been known to order it once or twice. It is delicious, but is exceedingly sweet.

    I've actually made this after I saw it on the Disney website. Please note that I've never had it at Disney before so I don't have anything to compare it to really. The only problem I had was the sourdough bread, it was very crumbly. I think it may have been the kind I got. And I had to use a regular pan. But I thought that it was very yummy. But be warned, I did manage to set the fire alarm off for the first time in my life.

    Don't forget the banana I felt the same, but I'd heard so much about it that I had to try and it was delicious
