      RECIPE TITLE "Tropical French Toast" source: Sunset magazine April, 1991

    yields serves 4 time--- difficultyeasy

    Thick slices of sweet baguette soak thoroughly in the egg mixture for a custardy interior and a golden crisp exterior. Depending on the season, you can garnish the French toast with sauteed apples, fresh berries, peach or nectarine slices, sliced bananas, toasted almonds, powdered sugar, or orange butter.


    3 large eggs
    cup orange juice
    3 tablespoons lime juice
    cup powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
    8 slices French bread (cut diagonally from loaf), each about 1/2 inch thick
    cup sweetened flaked coconut
    Tropical topping (recipe follows)
    Whole strawberries, rinsed and drained (optional)


    In a wide bowl, beat together eggs, orange juice, lime juice, powdered sugar, and coconut extract until well blended.

    Dip each piece of bread in egg mixture, turning to saturate both sides. Arrange slices in a single layer on a lightly greased 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. Sprinkle tops of slices evenly with half the coconut. Lightly press coconut onto bread.

    Bake bread in a 400 deg oven until coconut is lightly browned, about 10 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn slices over. Sprinkle evenly with remaining coconut. Continue baking until slices are puffed and coconut and bread are lightly browned, about 10 minutes longer.

    Transfer slices to individual plates; allow 2 per serving. Spoon topping over bread, dividing it evenly among plates. Garnish with whole strawberries.
