Coconut Cream French Toast

Rated as 4.14 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Place whole egg and egg yolk in a bowl. Add coconut milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and nutmeg; whisk until batter is combined.
  2. Soak bread halves in batter, tossing every 2 to 3 minutes to ensure they are absorbing the batter evenly, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

This was very good. I pretty much always make French Toast this way except for using heavy cream rather than coconut milk. I usually top with our great local strawberries, so the mangoes were a...

Good, although my day-old french bread did not absorb nearly enough of the batter. Make sure your bread is at least a few days stale. Soaking overnight might also help.
