OTT Chocolate and Coconut Stuffed French Toast

Every now and then you just need a little weekend indulgence. Porridge or poached eggs on toast sometimes just doesn’t cut the mustard and you need a little “yippee I made it to through the week” food.

In the spirit of all things OTT and way too decadent for breakfast, I decided to make this Chocolate and Coconut Stuffed French Toast. This is really simple to make and if you have someone over for brunch, they’ll think you’re a real whizz in the kitchen! You don’t even have to make the chocolate sauce, you can use Nutella… Simple!

Ingredients (Serves 1):

2 slices good quality white bread (I used cranberry white spelt)

1 egg

Cinnamon

Coconut milk

Chocolate (I used dark but you could just use nutella instead of making the sauce if you have some handy)

Coconut yoghurt

Coconut oil

  1. Break 2 squares of chocolate and place in a heavy bottomed pan with 2 tbsp of coconut milk. Let it melt over a really low heat, taking it off the heat every now and then so it doesn’t curdle. Mix together until totally melted into a sauce.
  2. Whisk together your egg, 2 tbsp coconut milk and some cinnamon in a bowl. When mixed through place on a big plate.
  3. Slather both slices of bread with coconut yoghurt, then drizzle the chocolate sauce over the coconut yoghurt. Squish the two slices of bread together and place it on the eggy plate.
  4. Let the stuffed sandwich sit on the plate for a minute absorbing all the egg and then turn on to the other side to do the same.
  5. Place a little coconut oil onto a hot frying pan and when melted place the eggy bread on top. Cook for about two minutes on each side, make sure the pan isn’t too hot.
  6. When cooked slice in half and serve while marvelling how beautifully the coconut and chocolate oozes out the sides.
  7. Enjoy!

Ah my first recipe from Sydney! It’s been a long time coming but I have been travelling a lot without internet access, but I guarantee it’s worth the wait! My brother introduced me to a blog called The Healthy Chef by Teresa Cutter who has a really nice range of yummy but super healthy recipes. I think it is fitting for my Oz blog as those beautiful Australians are so fit and health conscious, and brunch is my favourite meal time.

This recipe is a great at weekends especially for a bit of a trek. Last weekend we did the coastal walk from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach in Sydney, and this was the perfect fuel. So here is Australian Chef, Teresa Cutter’s Banana Stuffed French Toast! And best of all it is the easiest recipe ever. You really really have to try this one!
