......cinnamon toast. Not many other smells remind me of my moms kitchen like it does. Saturday mornings, breakfast before the infamous "to do" list. My mom had a bowl of cinnamon sugar on the counter. If I remember it was white, with a lid and it had baby blue and yellow flowers on it. Sibs, am I right?
Well, my husband has the same memories. The difference? His mom made his toast, AND she did it in the oven to boot! Not to long ago he said to me, "I should totally make you my mom's cinnamon toast in the oven". Well, as a cinnamon anything crazy lady, my eyes perked up like the ears of dog eyeballing a burger. Well, YES you should my darlin'! Uh huh........screeeeeeeeech. What he meant to say was this, "I am so hungry for my mom's cinnamon toast. If I tell you how to make it, can you make it for me and serve it to me upon my royal platter"? Well sure, I would do about anything for my king! I was so glad I did, not only was this delicious and SOOO crazy easy, the look on his face when he ate it was priceless!
So tell me if I was raised under a rock or if you, like me, had never heard of cinnamon toast made like this before! When you take the like, oh I don't know, 5 minutes it takes to make this and you eat it, you are going to understand the goodness. The key is LOTS of butter says my husband. Of course his key to ANY goodness is LOTS of butter.
I did 8 slices, these measurements are loose but, you aren't going to mess it up, trust me!
8 slices of bread
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. On a baking sheet, arrange your bread. Butter each piece LIBERALLY. Divide the brown sugar up between the slices of bread. It may not take all of it or it may, depends on heavy you go! When they are all buttered and sprinkled with brown sugar, take your cinnamon and just sprinkle the tops. I give no measurement because, well, I don't like to put limits on cinnamon like that! Slide into the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the brown sugar is melted and bubbly!
I dare you to try to just eat one piece. Yea, uh huh, I dare you.
