Today, I have a blender French toast with coconut syrup for all you. If you have made my fluffy French toast recipe before, this is similar. Then you add in the amazing coconut syrup. It’s a nice way to give your french toast a tropical twist.
The batter for this French toast is different Than your typical batter because it includes flour. You can also find flour in my recipe for fluffy French toast. However, with this recipe the batter gets blended in a blender. This mixes that flour in there even better.
The flour adds an ever so like crispness to the french toast that you can’t get any other way. It’s like a light crunch you would get if you deep fried your French toast.
Now for the syrup, the base is a basic buttermilk syrup. The measurements are a bit different than my regular buttermilk syrup. There is a little more buttermilk and less baking soda. Then, it has no corn syrup. Last, you use coconut extract instead of vanilla. It’s quite delicious.
I like to this blender French toast topped with some banana slices and coconut in addition to the coconut syrup. In the photo, I used regular shredded coconut. However, I do prefer to use toasted coconut. I like the added texture and flavor you get when it’s toasted.Print
