Where was this amazing cinnamon toast all my life??? I only discovered it about 6 years ago when I was flipping through a cookbook I bought called The Old-Time Brand-Name Cookbook. I remembered it the next time I had some leftover bread that needed to be eaten up. The kids loved it!  I didn’t eat any because at the time I was doing Weight Watchers. Fast forward a couple months and I fixed it again. This time my willpower was basically null and I ate it and oh my goodness was it ever good!!! No wonder the kids loved it, it was delicious! I have since then modified the recipe, not much, and they love it even more!

Growing up my Mom would fix us apple butter toast, but the toast was soggy,  always soggy. Who likes soggy bread? Not me! So even though I loved the taste of hot apple butter, I didn’t like a sink hole in the middle of my bread!




So you can guarantee the cinnamon toast I fix the kids is not soggy! To ensure toastiness (possibly could be a made up word), please, please, bake your bread in the oven till crisp before slathering on the cinnamonny sugar butter! I promise you, you won’t regret it!

I feel like I’m just making up words today, just play along 😃

Note: Use thick, firm white bread. If you have homemade bread, slice pieces about 1/3 " thick.

There’s several approaches to cinnamon toast, but I think this one is the most delicious way! Sure, you could just melt some butter and sprinkle on some sugar and cinnamon, but that won’t leave your mouth singing with joy. No! You need to try it this way and taste the difference!

The smell is so tantalizing and is real torture for a person that can’t eat bread. The only people that say, oh it would be so easy for me to give up bread, are the ones that don’t have to worry about not giving it up! And they say that with bread crumbs on their face 😉

So to all my gluten eating friends, do yourself a favor and fix this delicious cinnamon toast today!

  2. This has been one of my guilty pleasures since childhood. I first knew if from one of the Peanuts cookbooks as “Linus’ Security Cinnamon Toast”. In fact, I bought a bread machine after losing the ONLY bakery that ever made the perfect white bread (dense enough to stand up under the double broil/toasting while staying moist inside), and my ongoing search is for the recipe that will give me exactly what I’m after from the machine.

    I’m actually amazed I’ve never seen anything like it on restaurant breakfast menus, it’s that good!
