Every once in a while, it's nice to have dessert in the morning.
That must have been the idea behind french toast, non?
It's freezing here in Kitakyushu and living in an old Japanese house with no insulation, I feel like I need to escape to somewhere tropical. Until I book my next trip to an island in Malaysia, this coconut french toast will have to satisfy my cravings.
Coconut French Toast
5 pieces of your favorite bread
1-2 tbsp condensed milk
2 tbsp butter
dash of milk or cream
optional: chopped nuts, cookie crumbs, whipped cream
Beat eggs lightly in a bowl, then add the condensed milk and dash of milk or cream. Melt a tbsp of the butter in a skillet (medium heat). Dip bread on both sides into egg mixture and fry on both sides until toasty and lightly browned. Repeat with remaining butter/bread/egg mixture. When ready to serve, cut bread into triangles, sprinkle generously with coconut, chopped nuts, cookie crumbs, and topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
