For Bananas Foster:

In a medium, shallow pan, combine the butter and sugar over low heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves.
Add the bananas to the pan and cook until beginning to soften.
Carefully add the rum (it may splatter). Cook until the rum is hot.
Carefully tip the pan to ignite the rum (or use a long match to ignite rum). Keep warm over lowest heat.

For French Toast:

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, and extract. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, letting excess drip off.
Place a large, shallow pan over medium heat, and add the oil and the butter. Cook in batches, until golden brown on both sides.
Drain on paper towels.
Arrange on a serving platter, then spoon on the Bananas Foster.
Garnish with confectioners’ sugar and sprigs of mint.
