Cinnamon Toast – A Childhood Favorite

Cinnamon Toast.

It’s not fancy, but it sure is delicious.

This is a “recipe” that I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid. And let’s be real… it’s a “recipe” because I know everybody makes it a little differently, and this is the first time I actually measured out the ingredients.

Basically, it’s bread, butter, granulated sugar with just a bit of cinnamon sprinkled on top.

I like to make this whenever I have sliced bread on hand, which is not often, but makes this even more special because it’s a rare treat.

Here’s how you can make your own. (And feel free to adapt the measurements of sugar and cinnamon if you want more or less! Though I measured this out, this “recipe” is not meant to be exact!)

Cinnamon Toast


  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Butter both slices of the bread on one side.
  2. Sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Transfer the bread slices into the toaster oven.
  4. On a low setting, slowly toast the Cinnamon Toast. This usually takes a few rounds of the medium toast feature on my toaster oven.
  5. When the bread is crispy and the sugar is caramelized, remove from the toaster oven, cut in half, and enjoy!

Do you have a favorite guilty pleasure treat/breakfast like this in your cooking arsenal?

    Does the recipe call for one and a half tablespoons of sugar or just a half?
