Put The Lime In The Coconut (French Toast Recipe)

So I had a bunch of odds & ends today, food-wise. It all started when I saw an ad for Denny’s ‘build your own French Toast’.
I wasn’t willing to spend $10 to have some day-old bread, so I figured I’d make my own.

Digging through the food in the van, I found coconut milk powder, candied walnuts, & limes.
& I made AMAZING french toast this morning

Lime French Toast With Coconut Icing

Serves 2

1 lime
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
4 slices bread
1/4 cup icing sugar
2 tbs coconut milk powder
2 tbs water
3 tbs shredded coconut
1/4 cup candied walnuts

Juice & zest the lime in a shallow bowl. Add the sugar, vanilla, & eggs & beat well.
Dip the bread in the egg mixture & cook in a hot pan until no longer wet, flipping when needed
Meanwhile, combine the icing sugar, coconut milk powder, & water. Mix until smooth, adding more water to get a drizzling consistency
Dish out the french toast, top with walnuts, drizzle icing over top, & sprinkle with shredded coconut

This recipe was originally posted on my blog, but I thought this was too good not to share everywhere else.
If anyone's interested, here's my blog where I b*tch & moan about how much of a pain it is to live in a camper van in Canadian winters (hint: not at all, as I cheated & lived inside), but I do occasionally post recipes & other food-related things:
