A big thanks to my mom for sharing her cinnamon toast recipe today!

Cinnamon toast is good no matter how you make it. This is maybe the method you’re most familiar with:

  • The quick and easy way: Toast a piece of white bread. Spread with butter. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar.

If you’ve only had cinnamon toast the quick and easy way, you’re in for a treat. Here’s the scoop on this method of making cinnamon toast – the way I used to make it for my kids:

  • The fancier, even-more-delicious method:  Toast a piece of bread (plain white or something fancier will do). Spread with butter. Top generously with cinnamon-sugar. Place under the broiler to caramelize the sugar. Remove from broiler, let cool a bit, and enjoy!

With this recipe, the cinnamon-sugar caramelizes so the top of the toast is almost like creme brulee. You’ll want to watch the toast carefully to make sure the sugar doesn’t burn!

Fancier Cinnamon Toast

Yield: 2 slices

Plain white bread works well for this recipe. But feel free to use whatever you have on hand.


  • 2 slices white bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Toast both slices of white bread to medium.
  2. Spread one side of each bread slice with butter.
  3. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spoon cinnamon-sugar evenly over toast.
  4. Place both slices of bread in an oven-safe skillet. Place under the broiler set to high for 20 seconds. Depending on your oven, the sugar may be caramelized. If it is (the sugar should look melted) remove from broiler, cool and eat. If not, continue to heat under the broiler - checking every 15 seconds or so - until sugar is caramelized.
