French toast is more than just a good excuse to use stale bread. It’s an easy brunch idea that can be elevated with a few simple ingredients, such as coconut milk and Amaretto. For this recipe, thick slices of French brioche soak up the batter for an ultra-decadent bite.

Ingredients

Method

1.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease two large oven trays liberally with butter. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut milk and Amaretto. Dip 12 brioche slices, one at a time, in the egg mixture, allowing a little of the mixture to drain back into bowl, and place on prepared trays.

2.

Sprinkle almonds on top. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden. Loosen from trays with a metal spatula. Stack slices on serving plates. Dust with icing sugar, if using. Top with a spoonful of coconut yoghurt and drizzle with syrup or honey. Serve.
