I didn't think the name coconut French toast did this justice, and while certainly not pie-like, the flavor profile was kind of close, and I was very pleased with the results. The staler your bread, the better this will turn out! Garnish with maple syrup, fresh mango, and lime juice.

  • Soak bread halves in batter, tossing every 2 to 3 minutes to ensure they are absorbing the batter evenly, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place soaked bread in a single layer in the skillet. Cook until richly browned, crispy, and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  • Toast coconut flakes in a dry skillet until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle over bread.

Cook's Note:

Use a French country loaf rather than a baguette to get nice big slices. Italian bread can be substituted for the French bread if preferred.
