My sister Miriam has been telling me about Coconut Toast for a while now. When we chat about what we’re cooking, and if we’ve hit on any must share recipes this one comes up. I confess; it didn’t sound like anything all that special to me in the telling of it. That is until I tried it. Miriam made this for the family while we were all at my Mom and Dad’s for Christmas. Trust me. Make this for your family. They’ll thank you!
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 beaten egg
- 12 slices of bread
Mix the first five ingredients in a medium bowl.
Spread the ooey gooey yumminess onto 12 slices of bread onto an ungreased jelly roll or cookie sheet pan. My sister just piled them all on one pan even though they hung over the edges a little. I don’t think I would have thought of that, but I love that it saves on washing dishes! Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 15-20 minutes until toast is lightly browned.
Warm right out of the oven it tastes like coconut pie! The top is a little crispy and the center a little gooey. It is amazing!
My sister takes this to church to share for breakfast and it’s always a hit! I think it’s best warm, but it’s even good left over. The center no longer has that gooey texture, but it’s still delicious!
Like I said, this is a must try!
