8 loaves in 6 days

That's what is it going to take.  A loaf and a third a day. Plus there are 3 packages of hot dog buns, two packages of rolls, two packages of bagels, two packages of tortillas, some focaccia bread and a partridge in a pear tree.  That's what happens when the cooks don't coordinate on a family vacation.  Did I mention the 4 pounds of butter?  And the toaster is broken!  I am not throwing out bread.  It goes against my principles.  This recipe put a small dent in the situation. 
Cinnamon Toast
Serves 8


  • 16 slices bread (whole wheat works great)
  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar (more to taste)
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (more to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Smush softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, if using. Stir to completely combine.

Spread on slices of bread, completely covering the surface all the way to the edges.  About 2 T per slice.
Place toast on a cookie sheet. Place cookies sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won't burn!
Remove from oven and cut slices into halves diagonally.

This cinnamon toast was good. The fact that we got to eat it while looking over the Gulf of Mexico made it all the more tasty.
