  • 1 loaf (1-1/2 pounds) day-old multigrain bread, unsliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 peeled medium mango, chopped
  • Sweetened shredded coconut, toasted


  1. Cut bread into 3/4-in. slices; place in a single layer in a 15x10-in. rimmed baking pan. Whisk together eggs, coconut milk, vanilla and salt. Carefully pour egg mixture evenly over bread; let stand 20 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil over medium heat. Cook bread in batches until golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side, adding remaining coconut oil as necessary. Meanwhile, beat heavy cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and coconut extract; beat until soft peaks form.
  3. Top French toast with chopped mango, whipped cream and toasted flaked coconut. Yield: 4 servings.
