*Cinnamon Roll Toast*
Courtesy of: A Year From Oak Cottage Serves 1 

These are the basic ingredients for one serving, but as you will see, it is very easily multiplied to serve as many as you wish. Never has something so simple tasted sooo good! You won't believe it, but . . . this tastes just like a warm cinnamon roll! 

Whenever we have a child to stay here overnight this is what I make them for breakfast and they love it and of course, I sometimes use it to feed the child in me! 
2 slices bread (white, wheat, or my personal favourite . . . raisin) 
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1 tablespoon butter, softened 
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted 
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!!!
