Nothing screams "It's going to be a great day" like waking up to this simple special treat!
Growing up I had three favorite breakfast delights. Number one would have to be my mom's biscuits and gravy. Number two - Monte Cristo, and number three was Coconut Praline Toast.
She made this for first day of school, home from college mornings, when company was staying over, or even holidays. I am glad I did not know how simple it was to make - because I might not have felt so special. What felt like an extravagance was really 5 ingredients thrown together.
What you will need:
4 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 Tablespoons light cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flaked coconut
8 slices of bread
Melt butter in saucepan. Remove from heat and add sugar, cream, vanilla, and coconut. Mix well. Let cool for 5 minutes. Toast bread in toaster. Slather with mixture. Enjoy!
This is a great side to eggs and bacon. You can make this a day ahead and put in frig. In the morning just microwave and put on toast! Great for Bagel topping or pound cake as well.
Hint: If you don't have cream in the house - we always substituted our powdered coffee cream.
We use 4 Tablespoons hot water to 2 Tablespoons of CoffeeMate.
Try it on your family - You'll be treated like a Queen for the day!
