Ingredients: what you need
You only need a few ingredients for this tempting vanilla honey cinnamon toast:
- 4 slices of your favorite bread
- 4 teaspoons of honey
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- butter for brushing
You probably already have most of these ingredients at home. That's the beauty of this recipe - it's simple and straightforward, but the result is just mind-blowing!
Preparation: The bread
Let's start with the bread. You can use any bread you like, but we recommend a good wholemeal or sourdough bread. It gives your toast a nice texture and a bold flavor that balances beautifully with the sweetness of the honey and the spiciness of the cinnamon.
Cut the bread into slices - not too thin and not too thick. About 1-2 cm is perfect. Then butter each slice on one side. The butter later gives the toast a nice crispy crust and really lets the honey and spices come into their own.
The spice mix: honey, vanilla and cinnamon
Now it's going to be really tasty! In a small bowl, mix the honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Make sure to mix everything well until you have an even paste. Add a pinch of salt to enhance the sweetness and create a wonderful contrast.
The smell that now reigns in your kitchen is simply heavenly! But the best is yet to come: applying the mixture to the bread.
Spreading: A sweet seduction
Take your toast and spread your honey-cinnamon-vanilla paste on the unbuttered side. Be generous and don't skip any part of the toast. Imagine how the honey and spices soak into the bread as it bakes... a real treat for the palate!
But before we get to the baking, let's let the toast sit for a few minutes. This gives the spices time to soak into the bread and makes the end product even tastier.
The Baking Process: Where Magic Happens
Now comes the exciting part! Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and place the toast, coated side up, on a baking sheet. Bake the toast for about 10-15 minutes or until nicely crispy and golden brown on the edges.
Be careful not to burn the toast - every oven is different, so it's a good idea to keep an eye on the toast. Once it's done, take it out of the oven and let it cool down a bit.
The completion: The final touch
Your Vanilla Honey Cinnamon Toast is almost ready! Now all that's left is the finishing touches: Drizzle some honey over the toast and maybe sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top. This step is optional, but it makes the toast extra tasty and looks pretty too.
The pleasure: The sweet end
Now it's time to enjoy your toast! Sit somewhere comfortable, maybe with a cup of coffee or tea, and bite into your piece of heaven. The crunchy toast, the sweet blend of spices, the aroma of vanilla and cinnamon... a real treat for the senses!
