Raspberry Coconut French Toast Slow-Cooker Style

I put the ingredients in the slow cooker crock the night before, refrigerate it, then pop the crock into the slow cooker in the morning. You can use regular milk or half-and-half, include your favorite jam, and substitute almond extract instead of vanilla. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups refrigerated sweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cubed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 2/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • Whipped cream, fresh raspberries and toasted sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, coconut milk and vanilla until blended. Place half of the bread in a greased 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker; layer with half of the cream cheese, jam, coconut and egg mixture. Repeat layers. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  • Cook, covered, on low 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 hours or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with whipped cream, raspberries and toasted coconut.

Test Kitchen tip
  • If you like extra crunch, toast the coconut before adding it to the slow cooker. Toasted chopped nuts would be tasty, too.

      Lots of crock pot liners will eventually crack if you put them from the refrigerator the the crockpot heaating element.

      Made this for a brunch today and it was delicious! I substituted half and half for the coconut milk and blackberry spreadable fruit for the raspberry jam because those are what I had on hand. Would love to try it with the coconut milk sometime. I made a half recipe because I have a 3qt cooker. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
