Isn't this the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?! ^^^ Like hellooooo get in my belly! I was so excited about this recipe that I jumped the gun and posted one of these pics on Instagram the same day I made them. And now I am finally getting around to posting this wonderful Coconut French Toast! It is so amazingly delicious, but I don't even feel like I need to tell you that because hopefully, you can tell by these glorious pictures!
After a wonderful trip to Maui over Thanksgiving, I became hooked on coconut french toast because I ate it every morning! So when I got home, I decided to recreate it and BAM, there I was back in that beautiful sunny place (even though really there was more than a foot of snow outside). Yep, that's how good this stuff is! Enjoy!
6 slices of bread
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk (or coconut milk)
1 teaspoon sugar
dash of salt
3 Tablespoons shredded coconut (plus more for topping)
1) In a shallow bowl or Tupperware, whisk eggs with a fork until blended. Add vanilla, milk, sugar, salt and coconut.
2) Heat a nonstick skillet and coat with a very small amount of butter or oil. Dip pieces of bread in egg mixture, coating both sides, and place on heated pan. Cook until no longer wet and golden on both sides.
3) Serve hot with whipped cream, fruit, and toasted coconut (instructions below). Enjoy!
To toast coconut, place on a baking sheet and cook in the oven on broil for 2-5 mins. Checking constantly to make sure it doesn't burn! It's done when the edges are slightly golden brown.
