Creme Brulee French Toast (Dairy Free)

25 Dec

Here is my dairy free version of this fabulous recipe! It has been a great Christmas morning tradition for a few years now. But recently we were told that dairy doesn’t sit so well with my sweet daughter. It turned out so yummy! No one even noticed a difference. (Well besides a hint of coconut). 


Creme Brulee French Toast


* ½ cup coconut oil
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 6 French bread slices
* 5 eggs
* 1 ½ cups canned heavy coconut milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
* ¼ teaspoon salt


1. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in brown sugar and honey, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
2. Remove crusts from bread, and arrange in the baking dish in a single layer. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla extract, orange brandy, and salt. Pour over the bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature.
4. Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and lightly browned.
