Cinnamon Roll Toast

About 4 years ago, I came across a wonderful little breakfast that was shared by the sweet Marie over at The English Kitchen.  Do go on over and check out her recipes, she has some of the most delicious food ever....matter of fact I'm thinking I will head over there this morning and Menu Plan from her blog :)

It was something so simple that I thought couldn't possibly be that easy and that tasty.  But I tried it anyway, and just like Marie said it would, it was delicious and simple.

Since then it's become my go to breakfast when I'm tired of cereal, oatmeal or just want a piece of toast with a little extra kick to it.

Cinnamon Roll Toast.  That's right....I said Cinnamon.Roll.Toast.  How is that possible?  Well, using just a few ingredients and I promise you it does indeed taste just like a Cinnamon Roll.  Yum!

This is what I served for breakfast this morning and then I realized that I never shared the recipe on the blog, I did include it in one of my Menu Plan posts back in 2008 but didn't give it it's own post and I totally think it deserves it, so here goes :)

Cinnamon Roll Toast
Cinnamon Roll Toast

2 slices bread (white, wheat, or my personal favourite . . . raisin)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted (powdered sugar here in the US)
1/2 tablespoon water
few drops of vanilla extract

Mix together the cinnamon and the butter until well combined. Use this mixture to butter your slices of bread on both sides. Heat a large sized skillet over medium high heat and then add your slices of bread. Toast well on both sides. Remove from the skillet and keep warm while you make the frosting.

Whisk together the icing sugar, water and vanilla to make a soft drizzable icing. Drizzle it haphazardly over the top of your warm cinnamon toast. Dig in and enjoy!!!

  5. [...] has worked out well for us. To switch it up a bit though, I decided to try a recipe I adapted from Full Bellies, Happy Kids. This was just as quick to make as cinnamon toast (perhaps even quicker), and it got a big thumbs [...]
