Step by step
Pour the milk into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the mixer whisk. Add the coconut milk and eggs. Mix on speed 4 for one minute. Pour into a shallow bowl.
Put the shredded coconut on a plate. Briefly soak a slice of brioche bread in the milk mixture, then dip it in the shredded coconut.
Heat up a pan with butter on medium high heat. Bake the bread on both sides till golden brown and crunchy. Continue till all slices are baked.
To make the hibiscus syrup, place water, sugar and hibiscus in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until the syrup thickens. Sieve and transfer to a bottle or an airtight container. You can make the syrup up to 5 days beforehand.
Serve the coconut french toasts with the syrup, coconut yoghurt, fresh coconut and edible flowers.
