This month’s Creative Cooking Crew’s challenge is cooking with spirits. This was an easy challenge for me because as the holidays approach, I start to make my “coquito” Puerto Rican eggnog. The idea came in a flash: Coquito French Toast!
We're always reading our posts and looking at all the beautiful pictures, but rarely have the chance to taste our creations. While in Florida, I had the opportunity to invite Laura Lafata and Joan Nova to a small gathering where I served my dish as dessert. Busy with preparations, Joan volunteered to shoot the pictures. Thanks “amiga” for a job well done.
Oh, and the French toast turned out absolutely delicious, moist and full of that coquito flavor. I highly recommend it as a holiday treat... or really, a breakfast or brunch recipe you can produce throughout the year. If you're a fan of French toast, you're not going to want to miss this one.
