Deliciously Easy, Crunchy Cinnamon Toast
I wish I knew the history of cinnamon toast, or could share with you the health of sugar, being one of the main ingredients.
But all I can say is that this is one of those recipes that goes way back. I first learned this one as a small child from my father. He probably learned it from his.
Everyone has a different way to make this, but this is the best, and only way to make this great.
Bread, butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Yum!
Of course you could do this in a toaster oven, but it would take longer.
You could also toast your bread in a stand-up toaster first, then quickly spread butter, sugar and cinnamon. Unfortunately, your bread just won't be the same.
It may be crunchy on one side, but will quickly start getting soggy, and your cinnamon and sugar won't be crunchy.
If you've never tried it in your oven on low broil, waiting for the loads of cinnamon and sugar to melt and boil together to make a nice crispy, crunchy layer on top of your bread, you are missing out.
Try this recipe at least once, and you'll surely write back and thank me. I know you'll enjoy!
- Your choice in bread slices
- 1 tub of butter
- Plenty of sugar
- Plenty of cinnamon
- Set your oven to low broil and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
- Set out your desired number of bread slices. You can use just about any type of bread; wheat, white, whole grain, gluten-free, cinnamon raisin, or anything else you desire.
- Butter each of your bread slices thickly. You don't want to be able to see the bread underneath.
- You'll want to butter each piece thickly because this butter will melt, incorporate the sugar, and boil to create the crunchy layer that makes this toast so delicious.
- Now, with a big spoon, sprinkle your sugar layer thickly.
- You'll want enough sugar to soak up your butter and create a nice thick crunchy layer on each slice of toast.
- Finally, sprinkle cinnamon on each piece. You don't need a lot to be delicious.
- Pop your cookie sheet of bread slices into the oven and broil for 10 minutes.
- If you are watching, you'll see the toast heat up and start to bubble. It's when it stops bubbling that it is done.
- When the timer goes off, remove your toast and set it on the stove to cool.
- Cooling will allow it to crisp up and harden. You're right, I can't wait that long either!
- Enjoy! Yummy! Yummy!

This is one of the yummy breakfast dishes that is in our regular breakfast rotation, next to waffles, pancakes, French toast, and oatmeal.
We each have our own meals that we make, and this is one of mine, which makes it one of my husband's favorites. lol That way he can sit on the couch and enjoy being pampered.
What's great is that it is so incredibly easy and amazingly delicious!
I would love to offer you options, or give you other ingredients you could use to make this your own, but I have none.
This is one of those recipes that is just delicious as it is. I can't possibly imagine a better combination than cinnamon and sugar?! Enjoy!
