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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place whole egg and egg yolk in a bowl. Add coconut milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and nutmeg; whisk until batter is combined.

    Advertisement
  • 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.

Yum! I'm a coconut fanatic and was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. I didn't have coconut milk, but did have coconut cream. Used just under 1/3 cup and added a little milk to thin it out. The amount of mixture for 3 slices was perfect. Will definitely make this again. Read More

I wanted to find a “French toast” recipe without cinnamon as my son is allergic to it. So I saw this recipe and decided to try it. I used brioche bread instead and it was delicious! It was good even without any syrup! Read More

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 nice change of pace. Read More

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. Read More
