The ingredients for cinnamon toast — bread, cinnamon, sugar and butter — have remained largely unchanged since the recipe first appeared in 15th century Europe, where it was introduced as a less expensive version of French toast. Some variations call for adding the cinnamon and sugar before toasting, others after. The secret to achieving a cinnamon toast that’s both gooey and crunchy? A combination of both methods. Toast the bread in butter in a skillet, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, flip so the sugar caramelizes, then sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar when it’s done. Toasting the bread in a skillet (like French toast) produces browned butter, which adds nutty warmth.
