Cinnamon Toast

When I read a post about making cinnamom toast the right way on the Pioneer Woman, I had no idea what Cinnamon toast was and was wondering what all the fuss about making it the right way was. So one weekend I decided to try the recipe and after biting into the crisp buttery and sugary goodness I was convinced that making this any other way would be a sin! There is nothing much to the recipe as its basically just butter,sugar and cinnamon. But it does give a nice alternative to the usual buttered toast or french toast. I only made 4 slices and quartered the recipe but was left wanting more! Try it on a lazy morning with a hot cup of tea or give it to your kids and watch them scarf it down. Don't  be surprised if they keep asking for more! 

Recipe Source - Given as is from The Pioneer Woman. My notes in red.

Ingredients - Makes 16 Slices

16 Slices Bread - Used Whole Wheat
2 Sticks (200 Gms) Salted Butter (Softened) - Used Unsalted
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract - Used Vanilla Essence
1/8 Tsp Ground Nutmeg - Omitted this

Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F).
Smush softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, if using. Stir to completely combine.
Spread on slices of bread, completely covering the surface all the way to the edges.
Place toast on a cookie sheet. Place cookies sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won’t burn!
Remove from oven and cut slices into halves diagonally.

Happy Eating!!
