Baked Coconut French Toast (Challah)

The other day I made challah with the hope that there would be enough leftover for French toast the next day.... and there was, yay! But I didn't want to make just any French toast, I wanted to change it up and make something different. I decided on coconut French toast. Delicious! I even stored some in the fridge and re-heated it and it still tasted pretty darn good. I love that it baked up so beautifully in the oven and I didn't have to cook a few at a time on the stovetop. Back in the day this wouldn't have bothered me, but now that I have a 2-year-old, a newborn, and a job (I work from home) life is getting a bit crazy busy. By the end of the day, when I'm waiting for my husband to get home from work, I go into a trance. Seriously, I just stare off into space for a while. Then he gets home and I think I literally fling the children at him so that I can have a break. Yes, literally. hehe And guess what mommy break time means? Leftover French toast! Yay!!! :)

And did I mention that this would be the perfect breakfast to share with your loved one on Valentine's Day?? Drizzle some chocolate on it maybe??

Egg mixture
Coconut flakes
Soak the bread in the egg mixture
Baked Coconut French Toast
Adapted From
Serving Size = 4 pieces
  • 4 pieces of challah, 1-inch thick
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups coconut flakes (roughly)
  1. Preheat oven to 475F. Grease a baking sheet (I used cooking spray).
  2. Mix together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and sugar. Soak each slice of bread in the mixture for about 1/2 a minute per side. Take coconut and pat it onto each side, set on baking sheet. Do this will each slice.
  3. Place in the oven and bake about 5 minutes per side (flip them over after 5 minutes).
  4. Serve with chocolate or syrup.
