This may seem like a rather simplistic recipe, but put that aside as the results are rather amazing. I am a self confessed cinnamon fan, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that one of my favourite snacks contains a good hit of the stuff.
Sugar (ideally brown)
- Start by toasting the bread on a very mild setting, so it’s only very slightly done.
- Next butter the toast generously and sprinkle about a teaspoon of sugar per slice.
- Sprinkle on cinnamon to taste, I’m quite generous really and aim for a few nice stripes of the stuff.
- Pop the toast under the grill until the sugar bubbles and absorbs all the cinnamon. You’ll know its about ready because it will also smell sweet and spicy.
Simple yes, but I assure it creates a combo of brown sugar and cinnamon goodness that is perfect as a special breakfast treat. It just proves there are some lovely sweet alternatives to jam.
