Caribbean French Toast w/ Coconut Syrup

Oh, how I love that my son is into culinary arts!
Oh, how I love that he makes breakfast 3 days a week.
Oh, how I love when I assign him an extra yummy breakfast recipe!
(yeah for homeschooling them in the areas of their passions)

I printed this recipe and assigned it to Ki as his Morning Breakfast to make for Culinary Arts Class.

Caribbean French Toast

(3 servings)

  • For The French Toast:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash of ground nutmeg
  • 6 slices French bread - about 1-inch thick
  • butter or margarine for frying

  • For The Coconut Syrup:
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons shredded sweetened coconut

First prepare the syrup: In a sauce pan over medium heat, stir the coconut milk with the cornstarch until the cornstarch dissolves. Add all remaining ingredients. Increase heat to high - stir often. As soon as the mixture reaches a rolling boil, turn off the heat. Set aside.

For the French Toast:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the orange juice, whipping cream, sugar and spices.

Prepare a large skillet by placing it over medium-high heat and melting 1 Tablespoon of butter.

Place the sliced bread into the egg mixture and flip to coat completely. Let each slice sit in the mixture for about 20 seconds to absorb the mixture.

Fry the bread in the prepared skillet (add as many bread slices as the skillet will comfortably hold). After about two minutes, check if the underside has browned. Flip and fry the other side to golden brown. When cooking in batches, add a little more butter or margarine each time.

Place French Toast on serving plates and serve with the warm coconut syrup.

A little taste of Jamaica for breakfast. The French Toast is also delicious with maple syrup as a topping if you want to skip the coconut syrup. This is so good with fresh fruit as a side dish.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank The Boss for this recipe.

The Chef in Action



We don't like our french toast soggy in the middle, so we don't soak it. It was enough egg mixture for almost a whole loaf of Texas Toast using the, 'quickly dip it' method.

This week I am puling out all the science kits we've not done/finished. I'll set them all out and the boys can do what they want with them all week. I think I'll assign 3 days that it is required to do something...maybe. or maybe they'll do more with none assigned.. we'll see.
