    Crunch Topping

    French Toast

    Rum syrup drizzle


    1. 1
      Whisk together evaporated milk, rum, eggs, and salt, and pour into a long dish good for dipping (I use a 9x13” rectangular glass dish and put in the bread slices two at a time). Set aside.
    2. 2
      Prepare topping -- Preheat oven to 325°F Combine macadamia nuts, coconut, butter and honey, and mix well. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
    3. 3
      Bake until lightly golden, about 12-15 minutes. Be aware that macadamia nuts will go from toasted to burned quickly, so keep a close eye on them if keeping them in longer.
    4. 4
      Remove from oven and stir in raisins. Set aside.
    5. 5
      While the topping is baking, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat in a large skillet that can contain two slices of bread.
    6. 6
      Dip two pieces of bread into the milk mixture and let soak for a few seconds. Flip over and let the second side soak for a few seconds.
    7. 7
      When butter is melted, add both slices of bread and let cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
    8. 8
      Repeat until all 8 pieces are cooked.
    9. 9
      For the drizzle, combine syrup and rum and mix well. If desired, warm through in a small saucepan on the stove.
    10. 10
      To serve, cut each piece of toast in half diagonally. Place four halves on each plate. Sprinkle with the crunch mixture and add a small drizzle of rum syrup. Serve with any extra crunch and maple syrup on the table to add as desired.

      I made this as "breakfast for dinner" and served with sausage links. The french toast is rich & the flavors excellent. I particularly liked the crunch topping. I did whimp out and use rum extract rather the rum. This would be great Sunday breakfast too. Thank you for sharing the recipe & good luck in the contest!

      I love french toast and this one certainly does not disappoint. What a nice use of contest ingredients. This sweet treat was perfection, perfectly cooked, great flavors and nice textures. I adore coconut and macadamia nuts, this felt tailor made for me. I opted to heat the maple rum syrup so happy I did. Thanks so much for sharing this creation, which I will make again. Good Luck in the Contest.

      What an ingenious use of contest ingredients! The whole family happily ate this for breakfast on a leisurely Sunday and no one complained. The crunch topping is brilliant! Good luck, chef, whoever you are. You were inspired when you created this treat. :-)
