Sharing is caring!

Disney’s Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is one of the most popular breakfast items offered at Walt Disney World Resort. I have to admit I am most likely in the minority when it comes to saying I can take it or leave it. I surely won’t go out of my way to have it, but there are many that can’t imagine a trip to Walt Disney World without this breakfast treat. So for those of you that just have to have it – here’s a recipe that will allow you to make it for yourself at home.

Serves 4

Sugar-Cinnamon Ingredients:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

You can also use pre-made cinnamon sugar

Batter Ingredients:
4 large eggs
1 1/3 cup whole milk (2% works just as well)
1 teaspoon vanilla
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

Cinnamon-Sugar Preparation:

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

Batter Preparation:

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

Tonga Toast Preparation:

1. Preheat oil 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 than 350 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.

Bon Appetit!
