But, er, I digress.
Lemongrass would be nice with this, but I didn't have that either. It's not such a common thing for me to have lemongrass. Anyway, it was simple and lovely with plain coconut.
Coconut French Toast
2 thick slices leftover or stale bread; challah or brioche works best
About a half cup of coconut milk
A pinch of salt
Coconut oil (or butter, if you haven't got it)
Crack your egg into a shallow bowl and beat in your coconut milk. This will be well thicker than your typical egg wash, but pay no mind. Add a pinch of salt to bring out the lovely flavor.
Over medium heat, melt your coconut oil.
Soak your bread, one slice at a time, in the egg mixture on both sides.
Slip your bread into the pan and fry in the oil until golden, flip, cook, and remove from heat.
Garnish with a drizzle of coconut milk and sprinkle over some cocoa powder.
Yeah, told you it was an easy one. Delightful though. Enjoy.
