Delicious Cinnamon Toast

Growing up my Mom would fix us apple butter toast, but the toast was soggy, always soggy. Who likes soggy bread? Not me! So even though I loved the taste of hot apple butter, I didn’t like a sink hole in the middle of my bread!

So you can guarantee the cinnamon toast I fix the kids is not soggy! To ensure toastiness (possibly could be a made up word), please, please, bake your bread in the oven till crisp before slathering on the cinnamonny sugar butter! I promise you, you won’t regret it!

I feel like I’m just making up words today, just play along.

I found this recipe in an old cookbook and fixed it for the kids, I didn't eat it at the time, but it was definitely on the list to re-make! So the next time I got to try it and wow!! No wonder the kids loved it, it was delicious! I have since then modified the recipe, not much, and they love it even more!

There’s several approaches to cinnamon toast, but I think this one is the most delicious way! Sure, you could just melt some butter and sprinkle on some sugar and cinnamon, but that won’t leave your mouth singing with joy. No! You need to try it this way and taste the difference!

    In the 50's , with 9 children at home, Mom would make this on Saturday mornings for us. Sometimes we drizzled syrup over the sugar/cinnamon

    and baked. I still make it for myself today. Substitute cocoa for the cinnamon is really good also.
