Tips for Making Easy Coconut French Toast Bake:
- I used French Bread but Texas toast works great too.
- You can make this the night before, I would wait until right before you bake it to add the crumb topping.
- You can add any kind of berry, whipped cream or just about any kind of syrup would be amazing!
This easy coconut french toast bake is a perfect addition to any breakfast or holiday brunch.
- 1 loaf French Bread
- 4 large Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk or half and half
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/2 Cup Coconut (flakes)
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Butter (melted)
- 1/2 Cup Pecans
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Salt
Spray a 9" by 13" pan with non-stick baking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix your eggs, milk, and nutmeg. Whisk.
In a separate bowl, mix together the melted butter and the brown sugar. Pour this mixture into the bottom of the 9" by 13' baking dish. (This will give the french toast a chewy and sweet crust on the bottom) Arrange 1" thick sliced french bread into the bottom of the baking dish.
Sprinkle the coconut flakes on the french bread, pour the egg and milk mixture onto the french bread.
In a food processor, ad the pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse until the nuts are chopped to desired size.
Sprinkle crumb topping onto the french toast and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
This recipe can be made ahead of time or baked right away. If you plan to make it ahead of time, don't add the crumb topping until you are ready to bake it. Enjoy!
