The First time I had a Coconut French Toast, I was in Heaven! I loved the toasted coconut and Pineapple garnish with a rum glaze. Wow! It knocked my socks off. I loved it and have been making forms of it ever since. This version is delicious made in the Instant Pot!
What is Stuffed French Toast?
Stuffed French Toast is french toast that is stuffed with added ingredients. In this case we have added brown sugar and cream cheese to the bread cubes. Then a rich creamy eggnog egg mixture poured over the top.
What is Coconut French Toast?
Coconut French Toast is just as it sounds. A French Toast made or garnished with Coconut to give it a light island flavors with added Pineapple as garnish. Oh it’s delicious.
If you have tried my other Stuffed French Toast Recipes, this one is another variation. I use my 2 tier pot in pot Instant Pot Accessory Pan where I can make 2 separate French Toast at once. One in each pan. With one loaf of french bread you can make two pans of Baked French Toast and add different ingredients to each to make exactly what suits you best!
What is Baked French Toast?
Baked French Toast is very similar to your traditional French Toast made on the stovetop, however the bread is typically cubed and an egg mixture with cinnamon and milk is poured over the top.
Coconut French Toast is sweet and delicious. I enjoy the sweet chewy coconut with juicy Pineapple and warm cream cheese over cubes of cut bread. A simple Rum Butter Syrup tops off this amazing Coconut French Toast and a perfect breakfast or brunch anytime of year.
