Have you ever tried this before? It’s like the best of both worlds, and it’s definitely my new favorite way to cook french toast. It’s so fast! Top with pineapple and coconut syrup, and it’s like you’ve escaped to a tropical island for breakfast…or something. :)

Here in Utah, we are lucky to have THE best white bread…which makes for some excellent french toast. We have some friends that always stock up on it when they’re in town.
the best bread from Utah! especially for french toast NoBiggie.net

I use a glass pie plate for easy dipping, along with a little bit of cinnamon into the milk and egg mixture.

For the coconut buttermilk syrup, I used my favorite buttermilk syrup recipe, and just added a teaspoon of coconut extract at the very end.

Here’s the recipe:

Waffle French Toast

6 slices of bread (your choice)
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions: Mix the eggs and milk together. Move mixture into a pie plate for easy dipping. Sprinkle the egg mixture with cinnamon. Dredge both sides of the french toast in the mixture allowing the excess to drip back into the pie plate. Place into warm waffle iron and close until finished cooking.

Coconut Buttermilk Syrup

1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons coconut extract
*Powdered sugar

Bring to a boil the first four ingredients (sugar, buttermilk, butter, and corn syrup). Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda. It will bubble up big. Having it off the heat and stirring constantly will help it not boil over. Finish by stirring in the vanilla and the coconut extract.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve with the warm syrup.

    Hey- we always stock up on in while in town too! We get 8-10 loafs, and freeze it so it last the 20 hour drive back to Minnesota. I’ve been tempted to write a love note to Grandma Sycamore…

    Thanks for such a great idea! And why did they ever close the Grandma Sycamore bakery in PG where you could buy her bread for $1 a loaf? That’s when I stocked up!

    Sounds so Y*U*M*M*Y, can’t wait to try it.
    If I wanted to make the syrup as a gift, do you think it will need to be kept refrigerated and, how long do you think the shelf life is?

    How have I not heard of this idea!?! My kids LOVE french toast and they love the holes in waffles, but not so much the waffle itself. I can tell our family has a new favorite breakfast already! Thanks for sharing! And the coconut extract addition sounds delish!
