    Gather the materials in both the "Ingredients" and the "Things You Will Need" sections. Take the butter out of the refrigerator before you perform the other steps. Heat the butter up in the microwave for 30 seconds or let it sit out in room temperature until you're ready to use it.

    Choose your bread. Anything that can have a broad sliced surface to hold melted butter will work. It shouldn't be very stale, but slightly stale bread temporarily improves with heating.[1]

    Toast slices of the bread. Take out or make however many slices you like and toast them. If making slices to toast simultaneously, make them about equally thick so they finish toasting simultaneously.

    Butter the hot toast. Right after the toast finishes, set it on a plate and butter it. Slice a pat of butter (or whatever you use) onto each slice of toast, and let it melt a bit. Smear the butter with the knife so its evenly distributed.

Tips

  • You can experiment with the sugar-cinnamon ratio for a slightly more or less cinnamon-like taste.
    • Cinnamon becomes "too much" more quickly and strongly than sugar. If you like just a little cinnamon sugar on your toast, make the mixture stronger in cinnamon than usual; if you like a lot, make it stronger in sugar.
  • If you have problems spreading the sugar evenly pour the sugar on a plate and press the toast on it.
  • Cinnamon sugar will stick to spreads other than butter, too. Try peanut butter for a different flavor and more nutrition. Cinnamon sugar would be a great way to spice up otherwise "natural" all-peanut peanut butter.
  • You could also try putting cocoa powder on the bread along with the sugar or cinnamon sugar. Or try chocolate syrup, which is itself sweetened.
  • Store away any excess cinnamon sugar, it keeps for a very long time.
  • If you use whole wheat or multi-grain toast, this is a great way to get children to eat more whole grains.

Warnings

  • Be careful when taking the toast out of the toaster. Never use cutlery (spoons, forks etc.) or metal tongs to get toast out of a toaster, as parts inside carry electricity at times. Completely nylon tongs are better.
