For the bananas:


  1. Make the French toast: In a shallow bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, orange zest, vanilla, and cinnamon. Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. While the pan is heating up, dip each slice of bread, one at a time, into the egg mixture, letting each side soak for at least 10 seconds. Cook for 5–6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Keep finished slices on a plate covered with aluminum foil to stay warm while you make the bananas.
  2. Make the caramelized bananas: In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, orange juice, and rum, if using. Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is nice and hot, add bananas and cook for about a minute on each side, or until they start to get brown and crystallized on the edges. Remove the bananas to a plate, then carefully add the orange juice mixture to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes, or until the mixture has reduced. Remove from heat and toss the bananas with the orange-rum caramel.
  3. Serve: Divide the French toast between two plates and top each portion with bananas and caramel. Serve with a little drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
