CAN I JUST SAY, this Coconut French Toast is FABULOUS!!!!! It is crazy good!
If you are a coconut lover, like me...this has to go on your menu for the week.
Its punched full of coconut flavor with a hint of strawberry shortcake ...mmmmm!
Coconut French Toast
3/4 c. heavy cream
2 t. coconut extract
1/4 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
2 c. shredded coconut
6 slices THICK HEAVY BREAD (homemade, bakery or french bread)
1 pkg. danish dessert
2 c. strawberries
Combine eggs, cream, coconut extract, vanilla and salt in a dish. Beat until combined. Place coconut in a pie dish. Dip both sides of bread in cream mixture, then dip both sides into coconut....press so that it will stick to the bread. Cook on a hot griddle sprayed coated with pan coating. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until middle of bread is no longer soft and soggy. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve. Serve topped with strawberry sauce and whipped topping.
Prepare Danish Dessert according to direction on box for "fruit sauce". When done, add sliced strawberries. Let sauce cool slightly if desired. (As you can see from my picture, I didn't wait long enough, my whipped topping melted). Pour desired amount on french toast, top with whipped topping.
