coconut french toast with buttermilk syrup


Mmmmmm . . . this buttermilk syrup has got to be my new favorite syrup e-ver!

Have you ever had it?
It is divine!

We made this last night for dinner. Yes, french toast for dinner.
Hey, we had eggs and bacon too to make it a nice well balanced meal.

So I took a quick pic of my dinner so I could share this ever-so important syrup recipe with y’all.

You will love it. Just ignore what you put into it, k?
All the calories are removed when you boil it.

Coconut French Toast

Sorry, I don’t have an official recipe for French Toast. We just combine eggs with a little milk, vanilla and cinnamon. There’s no rhyme or reason, it’s just a little of this and a little of that. But once you make your little concoction, put some coconut on a plate and you can either dab the milky bread on it or sprinkle coconut on the top of the bread once it’s in the pan. You definitely want toasted coconut. It’s the best.

Buttermilk Syrup

2 cubes of butter (that’s 1 c. total)
2 c. sugar
1 c. buttermilk

Combine in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add:

1 T. vanilla
1 t. baking soda

Warning, that baking soda does make it foamy, but fun! :)

Live on the edge. Enjoy every drip and drop of that syrup.
Indulge yourself.

You deserve it!

    Yummy, but sadly I’m really trying to stick to WW. Once I lose the weight (already lost 32 #s) THEN I’ll try this! What a lovely recipe card this would make.

    Hi Kerri-
    With regards to the syrup, will it keep in the fridge? I’m assuming it’s so good that it will go fast but my husband travels and most of the time it’s just me at home. I’ll start with a half batch since I’m not big on heavy syrup on my frenchies….

    My mouth is watering just looking at the picture!

      We do keep ours in the fridge, although there’s just a little container left after five people eat. ;) It’s usually gone a couple days afterwards if someone makes some french toast for breakfast. Or if we happened to have frozen waffles…I’m sure it would be gone.
