  7. Add the eggs and milk to a wide based bowl and whisk to combine
  8. Dip the bread into the egg mixture to soak for a few seconds then flip to the other side to ensure that it is thoroughly coated
  9. Stand up on it's end in the bowl and continue to dip the next pieces of bread until they are also coated and all of the mixture is used
  10. Heat a pan and add the cooking oil
  11. Place the coated bread into a medium heat pan to cook for 3-5 minutes each side - until golden brown each side
  12. To serve to the slices of bread with the fruit and drizzle with the pan juices and extra maple syrup and dried coconut pieces if desired.
