Author: Nikki
This could very well be the BEST breakfast casserole you ever eat! The coconut flavor is AMAZING!
  • 1 loaf french bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 (15 oz.) can coco lopez
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 cup coconut
Coconut Buttermilk Syrup
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons coconut extract
  1. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place bread cubes inside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, coco lopez and milk together until well mixed.
  4. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes and press bread cubes down with hand to coat all of them.
  5. Cover with baking dish with saran wrap and place in fridge over night.
  6. In the morning when ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Sprinkle coconut over the top of casserole.
  8. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes until done.
  9. Serve with Coconut Buttermilk Syrup.
To make Coconut Buttermilk Syrup
  1. Combine butter, sugar and buttermilk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar completely dissolves. Then remove from heat and add baking soda and coconut extract. Stir to combine. Syrup will foam up, but that is part of what makes it SO incredible. Don't be alarmed by that.
  2. Drizzle (or if you are like my family then saturate) your french toast with syrup and enjoy!
