Cinnamon Toast Of Love

  • Yield: 2 to 4 servings


  • 4 slices white bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Place the bread on a cutting board or large plate.
  • With a butter knife or other spreader, spread each slice with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the butter.
  • Pour the sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl and stir with a spoon to combine well.
  • Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar over each slice of bread to evenly coat.
  • Place the prepared bread slices directly on the rack of a toaster oven and toast until golden brown and bubbly, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm.
