  • 8 slices Texas Toast-style bread

  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk, canned

  • 1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut flakes


  1. Preheat the griddle or skillet to medium-low heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with sugar until light and foamy. Whisk in coconut milk, coconut extract, and vanilla extract. Stir in coconut flakes.
  3. Pour the mixture into an 8x8-inch or larger container. Dip each slice of bread into the coconut mixture. Let the bread soak in the coconut mixture for 15 seconds then flip and allow the other side to soak 15 seconds.
  4. Immediately transfer bread slices to the preheated pan.
  5. Cook 1-2 minutes on each slide until the bread is light brown and the coconut is toasty. Watch the coconut carefully and adjust the cooking temperature as necessary to make sure the coconut doesn't get too brown.
  6. Serve with maple syrup or syrup of your choice.
