Sweet cinnamon butter toast

I can still remember as a child waking up to the aroma of toast fried to a crisp in butter. A generous sprinkle of sugar and a good dusting of cinnamon completed it. Sweet and crunchy, my siblings and I would gobble slice after slice. My mom used to make this yummy, rather decadent breakfast for me and now I serve up the same to my 4-year old. It is truly the most simple and easy recipe and it always gets rave reviews.


  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon


  • Frying pan


  1. Melt a heaping tablespoon of butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Brown a slice of bread on both sides until crisp.
  3. Place bread on a plate and sprinkle generously with sugar.
  4. Give a healthy dusting of cinnamon on top.

What you should know

Change up this recipe slightly by using powdered sugar or a flavored sugar like vanilla.

Can I clog my arteries with maple syrup with your butter toast? Or is that just not the done thing?

Re: Sweet cinnamon butter toast

The maple syrup would make it soggy in my opinion. But it’s worth a try! I love this dish as an alternative to a cinnamon donut.

If you like cinnamon toast, try this variation:

• 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

• 3 Tbsp. sugar

• ½ tsp. cinnamon

Spread slice of bread with butter and sprinkle with mixture. Broil about 3 inches from heat source. Be careful it only takes a few seconds.
