Tasty! I gave this recipe a try today, and loved it! I did not have any Hawaiian sweet bread, so I used Texas Toast instead, and it still came out great! I love the hint of rum flavor with the orange. I also did not make the sauce, but simply ate it with a sprinkling of sugar. Great, but will have to get everything that I need for the sauce and try that next time.
I didn't have any Hawaiian bread, I used Italian bread. I wasn't so crazy about the syrup, regular syrup would have been better. I also agree with another reviewer, pineapple chunks would be better than crushed pineapple. I toasted sliced almonds and topped the toast with them while cooking so that they would adhere to the toast. I also sprinkled with some shredded coconut lastly. I feel that adding a bit of coconut extract to the egg mixture would have been better. Because I wanted a truly "tropical" tasting french toast, I topped the finished toast with a few slices of banana before serving. On the side, a few slices of mango to seal the deal! All of the elements were there, yet somehow it just didn't "wow" me. Maybe it was the bread? I feel my version needs a bit more tweaking to make it the tropical french toast I was looking for when I searched for this recipe. Yet the base of this recipe is lacking.
YUM, YUM & YUM again!! This is an awesome alternative to the super heavy french toast I'm used to. It will be a perfect summer breakfast out by the pool!!
I think I definetly have to add toasted coconut on top next time, and may experiment with the syrup...but this is just great!
Thank you! :)
I have used hawaiian bread for years as a french toast base. I like this recipe but I like a little simpler. I do the basic base of whole eggs, milk, vanilla, etc. and have found that the french vanilla creamer I use in my coffee makes an excellent addition to the batch. I also skip the fruit and everyone loves it!
Yum! I didn't have rum extract, and I only used maple syrup instead of the fruit sauce, but the honey really made a big difference in this recipe.
This was really good. Don't skip the rum extract - it really adds to the flavor. I didn't have enough egg mixture to use the whole loaf of Hawaiian bread, but since I was feeding two people, it worked out better anyway. The fruit topping is easy and quite tasty, although you had better be in the mood for something sweet - whew! I accidentally added 1 teaspoon of orange rind to the sauce but it just made it even fruitier. All in all, a delicious meal that thoroughly satisfies your sweet tooth.
Yummy! This was delicious!!!! Very moist and flavorful. I didn't have the rum extract, so I used 1 tsp coconut rum instead and it still came out great=)
The stores around here don't carry Hawaiian bread, and I didn't have time to make it so I used Portuguese sweet bread. Everyone enjoyed this, and I will make again. I topped it off with coconut syrup from this site.
