8 slices pound cake, thawed (cut into 1/2-inch thick slices)
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
2 tablespoons butter
Combine strawberries, kiwi and sugar in a bowl; toss and set aside.
Separate four slices of cake and spread each with 2 teaspoons cream cheese. Place
the remaining slices on top to make sandwiches.
Beat egg, milk and coconut extract together. Transfer to a semi-flat dish into
which the cake can be dipped. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 10-inch skillet to coat
the bottom of the pan. Dip both sides of two of the sandwiches in the egg batter,
place in the pan and sauté on one side until toasted. Turn sandwich over and cook
until golden brown. Repeat this step for remaining sandwiches.
Place each sandwich on a plate, cut in half and open into a "V." Spoon strawberry-kiwi
syrup over sandwiches and finish with a generous swirl of whipped topping in the
middle of the "V," followed by a sliced strawberry.
