French Toasts:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (full fat, low fat or skim milk)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 slices day-old bread of choice

Chocolate Icing:

  • 2/3 cups icing (powdered) sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup of warm/boiling water

Raspberry/Strawberry Syrup:

  • 1/4 cup Raspberry or Strawberry Jam
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water

Additional Ingredient:

  • 1/2 cup desiccated/finely shredded coconut (you won't use it all, but it helps to have this quantity to evenly coat the french toasts)


  • Whisk eggs and milk together in a wide shallow dish. Add one piece of bread at a time to soak in the egg mix. 
  • Heat a lightly buttered pan over medium heat. Fry each bread until golden on each side and cooked through. Repeat with each slice.
  • To Make the Chocolate Icing: In another shallow dish, whisk together the icing sugar and cocoa powder. Add the warm/boiling water and mix until a thick chocolate sauce-like icing forms.
  • Prepare a separate shallow dish with the coconut and set aside. Dip each french toast into the chocolate icing until all sides are evenly covered; allow any excess icing to drip off, then place each chocolate covered french toast into the bowl of coconut; turning to evenly cover. (Sprinkle coconut over the top to get a good coating.)
  • To Make the Jam Syrup: combine the jam and water in a serving jug, and whisk until a syrup forms.
  • To serve: drizzle the jam syrup over the top to serve!
