Today’s Kerrygold Premium Spreadable Butter tip takes me back with an updated spin on a childhood favorite….cinnamon toast. I have memories of slices of bread that were toasted, buttered, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. I also have memories of the cinnamon sugar ending up all over my plate because the butter just couldn’t hold it. Melted butter lacks the muscle to grab onto the cinnamon sugar and turn it into a crisp, crunchy layer of deliciousness. My friends, with only a few minor substitutions, you can take your cinnamon toast from drab to fab. And Kerrygold Premium Spreadable Butter is here to help you.
First, you’re going to take that butter and out of fridge and scoop out a couple of tablespoons. Try doing that with a regular stick of butter. Put the butter into a small bowl, set an oven rack in the top position, and heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next, take your spice of choice. Cinnamon sugar is lovely but I am head over heels in love with cardamom sugar. You can make your own or buy it online. Let’s just say I buy mine in bulk. Start adding the spiced sugar about a teaspoon at a time to the butter and work it in with a fork. Again, try doing that with a regular stick of butter straight from the fridge.
Taste a bit of the spiced butter. Do you want more spice flavor? Then keep adding your spiced sugar and tasting until it is how you want it. While your oven continues to heat up, line a sheet pan with parchment and butter your bread slices. Make sure you get a good layer of the spiced butter on the bread and that it goes all the way to the edges. Place the bread, butter side up, on the parchment.
Bake for 10 minutes and then switch the oven over to broil. Broil for a few more minutes, carefully moving the pan around if necessary, until the top of the bread is bubbly and browned without being charred.
