Cinnamon Toast Brûlée takes that classic, simple as can be treat to indulgent heights with nothing more than the magic of heat. Toast is topped with buttery, sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt, then brûléed until a bubbly, butter candy shell forms.
- 2-3 slices bread
- 2-3 tablespoons butter at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch salt
- Before you begin, here are a couple of things to keep in mind. Since bread can vary in size so much, this recipe will make 2-3 slices, depending how big your slices of bread may be.
You can use either a culinary torch or the broil setting in your oven to brûlée your toast.
- Combine sugar, cinnamon and salt together in a small bowl and stir to mix.
- Toast your bread to desired toastiness in your toaster or oven. FYI, if you are using the broil method, toast a little lighter than you prefer as it will toast up more when it broils.
- Transfer the toast to a baking sheet then spread about 3/4 - 1 tablespoon of butter on each slice of toast while it is still warm.
- Evenly sprinkle the sugar mix over the top of the melty butter on each slice of toast.
- For the culinary torch method: Hit the sugar mix with the culinary torch, gently waving the torch over the top until the sugar starts to melt, bubble up and bûlée. It should make a crisp, candy like shell.
For the broil method: Turn oven on to broil setting, low broil if available. Allow to warm up for a minute or two. Place the baking sheet in the oven and watch the magic happen as the broiler brûlées the sugar and butter mix. It happens very fast, so keep an eye on it. The toast should brûlée up in less than a minute.
