Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket inside each slice of bread being careful not to split the bread into two slices.
Spread a portion of the Nutella inside each pocket and then layer in the sliced bananas.
Pre-heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough butter to liberally coat the bottom of the pan. You want the pan to be hot, but not smoking.
Whisk together the heavy cream, eggs, cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl, and then dip each filled bread pocket into the mixture ensuring the bread is fully soaked on all sides. Repeat with the remaining filled bread pockets.
In batches, fry the soaked slices of bread until the egg mixture is fully cooked, about 3 minutes per side.
Top the French toast with additional banana slices and serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup.
