Easy Cinnamon Toast recipe that takes minutes to prepare. This is the childhood snack we all grew up with and loved.
Cinnamon Toast Recipe
My husband John LOVES Cinnamon Toast! It reminds him of his mom making sweet sugar cinnamon toast for him and his sister.
I have to admit it has been a few years since I have made cinnamon toast. It is one of those recipes we love but then it fades from thought a bit with life going all different directions.
John's sister was visiting from Alabama and they were reminiscing about all of their childhood favorite snacks.
Have you heard of peanuts and coke? I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and had never heard of this combination before they started talking about it.
They also loved boiled peanuts which I learned to make when John and I got married.
Thankfully we all had cinnamon sugar toast as kids and loved it.
There are a couple of ways to make cinnamon toast from super easy to also easy but an extra step or 2. We are going to talk about all the different ways to make it below.
- Butter, unsalted
- Bread slices
Butter - Make sure the butter is nice and soft so it easily spreads on the bread.
Cinnamon Sugar - The right proportion of cinnamon sugar helps balance these flavors.
Bread - You can use any bread you have available. We love making it on soft white bread that reminds us of our childhoods.
How to make Cinnamon Toast
The way I remember cinnamon toast being made is toasting the bread in a toaster and spreading butter over it as soon as it comes out of the toaster. Then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the top of the piece of bread and diving in.
Spread softened butter on the bread slices so the entire slice is covered. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.
Ok, this is not really advanced it is just a couple more steps but oh so worth it. Combine butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a small bowl and stir to completely combine.
Spread over each slice of bread until the entire slice is covered in cinnamon sugar butter. Cook in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes. At the end of cooking broil until golden brown and bubbling.
You can make cinnamon toast with any of these methods and it will taste amazing.
If you are making this for a holiday morning or a larger crowd you can easily double or triple the amount of butter, cinnamon, and sugar.
Make sure to completely cover the surface of the toast.
