I let this recipe through although it isn't French, except it is made best with real French bread, because the children like it - and we live in France. Coconut bread is not necessarily an example of great French cookery, but even the French know that kids deserve a treat sometimes!


  • 1 or 2 loaves French bread
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag coconut


  1. Cut bread into large pieces.
  2. Place in bowl and allow to harden slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, mix sweetened condensed milk and coconut.
  4. Dip the bread into the milk mixture.
  5. Pierce with long handled forks or toasting forks.
  6. Grill over hot coals until toasted brown.
  7. Cool and eat.
