• 1egg
  • 1egg yolk
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 thick slices very stale French bread, halved crosswise
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Place whole egg and egg yolk in a bowl. Add coconut milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and nutmeg; whisk until batter is combined.


  • Step 2

    Soak bread halves in batter, tossing every 2 to 3 minutes to ensure they are absorbing the batter evenly, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place soaked bread in a single layer in the skillet. Cook until richly browned, crispy, and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  • Step 4

    Toast coconut flakes in a dry skillet until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle over bread.

  • Cook's Note:

    Use a French country loaf rather than a baguette to get nice big slices. Italian bread can be substituted for the French bread if preferred.
