• Sliced bread (white or whole wheat)
  • Unsalted butter, softened
  • Granulated sugar
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  1. Butter the Bread:
  • Spread a generous layer of softened butter on each slice of bread. Ensure that the butter reaches the edges for even flavor.
  1. Sprinkle Cinnamon and Sugar:
  • In a small bowl, mix together granulated sugar and ground cinnamon to your desired sweetness and spiciness level.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the buttered bread slices.
  1. Bake in the Oven:
  • Place the prepared slices directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the sugar has caramelized.
  1. Optional: Broil for Extra Crispiness:
  • If you want extra crispiness, you can broil the slices for 1-2 minutes after baking. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.
  1. Cool Slightly and Serve:
  • Allow the cinnamon toast to cool for a minute or two before serving. The sugar can be very hot.
  1. Cut into Strips or Triangles (Optional):
  • Cut the cinnamon toast into strips or triangles if desired, making it easier to handle or share.
  1. Enjoy:
  • Serve the warm cinnamon toast with your favorite hot beverage or enjoy it as a quick and comforting breakfast treat.
