This is a very quick snack that I made over the weekend, perfect with a Saturday morning (hangover!) coffee. It reminds me of that cinnamon toast crunch cereal as well, but has a decidedly high class almost French pastry taste and feel about it.
The best type of bread to use I think is quite thin, soft, white bread, something like Tesco value type or similar. Thin bread works best as the sugary butter mixture soaks right through the slice.
- 2 slices fresh white bread
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- Butter for spreading
Lightly toast your bread on both sides, just so that it is light golden brown (you don't want to overdo the toast at this stage, as you will need to return it to the grill in a minute). Now remove from the grill, and butter generously.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and then sprinkle all over the toast.
Turn the grill down to medium-low temperature, and return the toast buttery side up to the grill. Cook until the sugar is all melted and starts to bubble and maybe caramelize a little bit.
Eat straight away, dunked into your coffee or, for a really continental feel, hot chocolate.
