  • 1 ½ Cup regular coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cups cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 loaf thickly sliced white or brioche bread


Whisk together the coconut milk, coconut cream, the heavy cream, and the eggs. Soak the bread slices in the mixture and cook on griddle until it crisps up. Finish it off in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the bread. Serve warm.
