pina Colada French toast

This is “adult” French toast. Mainly because there is a tad bit of dark rum in the “syrup”. Pineapple and coconut need rum, though…. right? This French toast that has been bathed in coconut milk and pineapple juice and then slathered with a sweet rum & agave glaze……pina colada French toastThis is my final recipe for #brunchweek, as well. Which means next week I’ll have dinner vittles. Because you may be “brunched” out by now. Me personally… I am thinking about BBQs and ice cold watermelon. I’m getting into summer mode.

This French toast eases right in to summertime. It’s the kind of breakfast you’d eat on vacation in the Keys, or, even better, Hawaii. It’s the kind of breakfast you’d have in flip flops, and it’s aroma would blend right into the fresh suntan lotion you just slathered on.
