Went to the Naked Cafe yesterday and the Coconut French Toast caught my eye. Didn’t order that one — maybe next time. But I did try to make it.
And I topped it with bananas and some grapefruit on the side!
- 12 eggs
- 1-1/4 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 14 slices day-old bread
- 1 package (7 ounces) flaked coconut
- Maple syrup
- In a large bowl, beat eggs; add milk, sugar and cinnamon. Add bread, a few slices at a time; let soak for 1 minute on each side. Coat both sides with coconut. Place on greased baking sheets.
- Bake at 475° for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with syrup. Yield: 7 servings.
The banana topping I coated with some brown sugar and heated in a pan for a bit.
I didn’t use maple syrup, I thought the bananas and hint of brown sugar was enough for me.
I cut the portions to 1/3 because I was only making it for two people.
What did I think: Thought the bananas made the dish but I would like to go back to Naked Cafe to try out their coconut French toast one of these days :-).
