  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk full fat
  • 1 teaspoon coconut rum
  • 1/4 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1, 5 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 6 small or 3 big slices of French bread
  • 2 Tbsp of Butter


  1. 1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, coconut extract, vanilla extract, rum and salt. Place the shredded coconut on a plate. Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture. Dip both sides of the coated bread into the shredded coconut. Drizzle a little egg mixture on top of the coconut to make it stick to the bread.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan or a griddle to medium to medium-high heat, melting the butter in it. Fry the slices of brioche until golden brown on one side and then turn and cook the other side. Don't let your pan get too hot or the French Toast will burn before it's done inside. Serve immediately or keep Coconut French toast warm in a 250 degree F oven.
  3. 3. Serve with butter, pure maple syrup, and fruit.
