Delicious French Toast with Coconut Syrup from Jinaya's Recipe Box



A great way to begin a new week is with a new recipe, don't you think?  I can hardly believe this year is almost over, it's gone by so fast for me.  Once October arrives it's one big event after another for my family and time really goes by fast.

We love getting together for a large breakfast on Christmas Day and New Year's Day so I'll be sharing several delicious recipes over the next month that you'll have to try.  Today I'm sharing a new family favorite introduced  by my daughter, Jinaya. This is the best recipe for French Toast I've tried, and we are breakfast connoisseurs!  Pair this with homemade Coconut Syrup and I'm certain it will be the best French Toast you'll ever try.

 Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup + 2 Tbs. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 large loaf French bread, sliced thick (about 12-13 slices)
  

I make French Toast with Master French bread from Costco.  The slices are about 3/4" inch thick which is perfect for making gourmet French Toast.


Instructions:

Combine all ingredients except bread in a blender.  Blend until mixture is lump-free. Transfer to a shallow bowl.

Quickly dip both sides of bread in mixture and place on a greased, hot skillet (heated to 325 degrees).  Flip over when browned.  Makes approximately ten 3/4" thick slices.  Serve with hot Coconut Syrup.

Make sure to "quickly" dip both slides of the bread in the mixture - you don't want to soak it.

For a truly gourmet dish you'll definitely want to serve this Coconut Syrup with your French Toast.  It's so delicious you'll be tempted to eat it by the spoonful.
 

Coconut Syrup

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. coconut extract

 
Instructions:

Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a medium saucepan.  Stir over medium heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves.
Bring to a boil and boil one minute.
Remove from heat and add baking soda and extract, stirring constantly.  It will bubble up, so if your pot is small, hold it over the sink to avoid spillage.  Continue to stir syrup and let it rest for about five minutes before serving, stirring every few minutes until the foam disappears.

This is perfect served over almost any breakfast food:  waffles, pancakes, French toast, crepes.
Serve with sliced berries and sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
Check back with me daily for details of my first give-away!  It's something that will come in handy after all the Christmas shopping!
Have a great week!
