Tropical Vegan French Toast is a dazzling plateful of happy breakfast food. Stacks of yellow & golden fried bread, flavoured with mango & coconut come topped with griddled pineapple, coconut, strawberries and syrup. This fruity and colourful breakfast recipe is an incredibly cheerful way to start your day.
It is essential to use robust, sturdy, thick white bread - I used a poppyseed white bloomer, but ciabatta, sourdough or a wide baguette would work. Whatever you do, DO NOT resort to using thin, floppy regular sandwich bread - the result will be a mushy mess in your pan (I know because I used such bread on my first test of this recipe). Use the best pan you have to cook it - I recommend a non stick pan that you know performs well. Also, ensure you allow the bread to cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes on each side to allow the batter to cook and stay attached to the bread. Constantly poking or moving the bread as it cooks will result in a mess. Once one side is cooked to golden brown flip carefully.
