Pandan French Toast - Ugly Delicious

Pandan French Toasts
The color might be lurid green and scary, but I can assure you that it's very yummy!

Bread soaked in mixture of egg, melted butter, coconut cream, sugar & pandan essence. It's a no brainer, really! Must be yum! I will definitely use coconut cream more often when making french toasts. It gives me that much needed kick-in-the-gut richness.
Pandan French Toasts
- bread of your choice (I used 1 small mixed grain bun, sliced to 1 cm thick slices)
- 2 tsp sugar
- 5 tbsp coconut cream
- 3 tbsp butter (salted), melted
- a pinch of salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- a few drops of pandan essence (add bit by bit, I added half a teaspoon)
- some more butter mixed with vegetable oil for frying

Melt butter, let cool for a bit while preparing other ingredients. Mix sugar, salt, coconut cream, pandan essence and melted butter in a bowl, soak bread pieces in the mixture and let them "marinate" in fridge for a couple of hours. Before serving, heat up some butter mixed with a bit of vegetable oil to prevent from burning, pan fry bread pieces until golden.

Pandan French Toasts
Rich, fragrant, sweet, and fluffffffy! I really adore the scent and creaminess of coconut milk in these babies.

With a colour like this, these could be a halloween treat! haha....
But these actually look more delicious than ugly to me ;) Probably because I love pandan.... I love the idea of pandan flavoured french toasts! Will have to give this a try next time I'm out of breakfast ideas :D

In Singapore it's common to sandwich a slice of cheese between hot waffles made with pandan-flavored batter. Sounds weird but I think some cheese could take these toasts to a new level!
