i am going to be posting this at 11th heavens homemaking haven for homemaker monday-check it out for tons of cool ideas.
i did not grow up on cinnamon toast. not sure why my mother never made it-maybe i should ask her why she deprived her oldest and arguably her best child of this yummy goodness?
i was an adult the first time i ever made it(the absolute WRONG way according to the pioneer woman. toast, butter, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mix on after)for myself. i liked it well enough,but would only eat it occasionally, sometimes going years without even thinking about it.
after the pioneer posted her recipe i doubt i will ever go years without thinking about cinnamon toast again. it is DELICIOUS. and simple. you just have to modify the technique a little. the recipe calls for a bunch of bread, but it easy to figure out how to cut it down just to make a couple of slices. i can only eat two, but i never make less than 4, because either one of my taste testers or my 4 year old niece(who can eat 4 herself)will want some. I have used homemade white bread and store bought whole wheat and both were fantastic. also-i have an electric stove and have found that the low broil setting is better than the high for this recipe, but ovens vary, so their might be some trial and error. i didnt use the nutmeg, but i think it would be good and i will try it next time.
adapted from the pioneer woman
* 16 slices Bread (whole Wheat Is Great!)
* 2 sticks Salted Butter, Softened
* 1 cup Sugar (more To Taste)
* 3 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
* 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract (more To Taste)
* ⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
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.
