The thing I love most about this loaf cake is that you can eat it for breakfast and no one will judge. This is perfect for me because I always struggle with finding things to eat for breakfast. If you are looking for other foods that double as dessert and also breakfast, pancakes, waffles, and muffins are all totally acceptable, even if you cover them in chocolate and raspberries, caramel, ice cream, and sprinkles, am I right?
I have been using a lot of coconut-related products lately in my cooking - coconut oil, coconut milk, and shredded coconut. Just last night, I enjoyed a delicious bowl of the silkiest yellow curry with tofu and fresh vegetables. I think my coconut obsession might have something to do with the seemingly long winter months and my desire for a well needed tropical-type vacation. So, clearly, I was going to incorporate coconut into this French toast in some fashion.
The cookie recipe that I finally settled on is soft and chewy. Slightly sweet with lots of melty chocolate, crunchy pecans, and a sprinkle of Maldon salt to tie it all together. The most delicious parts of this recipe, in no particular order, are the 1) brown butter 2) maple sugar 3) dark chocolate 4) pecans and 5) Maldon salt.
