Caramelized Toasted Bread - A Sweet Breakfast for kids

While making the Lemon Cookies I did something to speed up bringing the butter to room temperature which involved using a microwave and the end results were not pretty. I heated the butter for a bit too long in the microwave and it completely melted. A little bit longer it would have been ghee. I could have stopped and used the melted butter. Instead I added the sugar and tried to cream it like the recipe called for. Not a smart idea. It did not cream :(

Common sense returned. I kept aside the well mixed butter sugar mixture aside wondering what use I can put it to. Couple of days later when I was wondering what breakfast to make when this idea struck.

Who doesn't like caramelized sugar? This is less of a recipe and more of an idea. As for it being a kid breakfast depends on you. There is no reason for adults not to have a couple of slices.

Caramelized Toasted Bread
Preparation Time:5 minutes
Cooking Time:15 minutes
  1. 8-10 slices of whole wheat bread
  2. 1/4 tbsp of butter
  3. 1/4 cup of sugar

  1. Mix together melted butter and sugar. It is better to make it ahead of time, let it cool and let it thicken a bit.
  2. Now heat a griddle for toasting the bread.
  3. Apply the butter sugar mixture for each of the bread slices.
  4. Toast the bread on the hot griddle till the sugar melts, flip and cook on the other side. The darker the color the crunchier and tastier it is.
I call it breakfast but it is good as a dessert.

  1. Its one of those Eureka moments right...never being used to sugar based dishes for breakfast, didn't realize that this was common until a friend of mine tastes so good...:)
