Cinnamon Toast

After the recent re-discovery of queso de bola toasts after a visit to La Cocina de Tita Moning, I decided to rekindle a childhood favorite in our home, cinnamon toast. The poor cousin of French toast, if all you had in the house was white bread, butter, cinnamon, sugar and cintoast2a toaster oven, you could have a VERY satisfying and delicious breakfast or more likely, snack. I liked the buttery sweet bread of Breadtalk that I used in the french toast I made last week so I used some of the remaining slices for cinnamon toast. To make, simply mix some softened butter (I prefer unsalted) with some cinnamon powder then spread it evenly on top of the sliced bread. Sprinkle with sugar and toast until done. If you notice from these photos, the sugar didn’t even melt, the crystals were rather large actually, but they worked well nonetheless. To make this kid snack a bit more “adult,” I had it with a cup of hot earl grey tea. Some things are so simple but so good… Another thing your kids can make with ease…

    way close to what we do with plain bagels here for b-fast. We use bread toaster to toast half-sliced bagels, and then spread fresh butter on top while its hot to allow butter to melt. Then sprinkle cinnamon powder and white sugar on top. Its really good

    this is one of our old reliables, MM, but i have an easier method.I mix together sugar and cinnamon in a shaker (the empty spice bottle with the holes on top are ideal, so it’s always ready for anyone who wants cinnamon toast or apple-cinnamon oatmeal.

    Yes, this was one of my childhood snacks. It’s kinda in the same league as condensada toast :-)

    Has anyone tried sprinkling dessicated coconut on condensada topped bread before toasting? Sarrap! Like macaroons but less coconut!

    Do you think brown sugar with cinnamon will taste better than white?
