Sometimes even a classic needs a little upgrade.
Cinnamon toast is such a comforting food, so simple to make and yet so delicious — which is why we were shocked when we discovered there is a way to improve on the staple.
This recipe from Raquel Pelzel’s book Toast definitely takes it to the next level. It takes a little extra effort, but its 100% worth it when you take that first bite. Trust us.
Here are the basics:
- Toast the bread under the oven’s broiler, buttering the toast before you put it in.
- Make a cinnamon infused simple syrup, which is much easier than it sounds.
- Brush the simple syrup on to the toast and sprinkle with a classic cinnamon sugar topping.
- Fry the bread, face down in a pan with butter, until the sugar topping cooks and the crusts start to caramelized. To speed up the cooking, you can place a plate on top of the bread to press it down.
See, a few extra steps are totally going to be worth the custardy center and caramelized crusts. Give it a try, and be careful not to get addicted.
