Ingredients

Coconut Cream Cheese Filling:

French Toast Batter:

Directions

Special equipment:
a butane torch; a squeeze bottle
  1. Cut the bread into 5 thick slices, each about 2-inches thick. Split the top of each slice open in the middle, creating a pocket. Stuff each pocket with 1/2 cup of the Coconut Cream Cheese Filling. Dip each piece of stuffed toast into the French Toast Batter, coating completely.
  2. Add 2 teaspoons of the oil to a pan set over medium heat. Place some pieces of the toast into the hot pan and cook until brown on both sides and heated through in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat for the remaining toast, adding more oil as needed to the pan.
  3. Transfer the raspberry puree to a squeeze bottle. Drizzle some raspberry puree in a circle on each serving plate. Sprinkle some strawberries on top. Cut the French toast slices in half on the bias and shingle 2 halves on each serving plate.
  4. Cut the bananas in half lengthwise and then split in half again widthwise. Place the bananas cut-side up on a sheet tray. Sprinkle the bananas with the granulated sugar to coat. Using the torch, melt the sugar until golden in color. Carefully place 3 pieces of banana on each plate next to the French toast.
  5. Sprinkle the coconut on the plates, then dust each with cinnamon and confectioners' sugar and serve with maple syrup.
