Cinnamon Toast

Toast was not a childhood memory for me as I grew up on a ranch in Montana where we had no electricity. So hot baking powder biscuits was the breakfast bread on our table.

But, for some reason, I woke up this morning craving cinnamon toast. Now I haven't had cinnamon toast since my children were small. But I do remember that they always thought it was such a special treat.



So I unveiled the toaster, softened some REAL butter, set out the sugar and cinnamon.

What a sweet treat it was along with some strong, black coffee.

I think we sometimes forget what small things can bring us joy and sweet memories.

How long since you have had cinnamon toast?

My youngest LOVES cinnamon toast and yet I never make it. He had it at my aunt's this summer. My mom used to make my dad broiled American cheese on white bread with sugar on top. I remember liking it them, but I wouldn't eat it now. I'm thinking I might just have to make some cinnamon toast and hot chocolate for my kids once the weather cools off around here -- maybe in the next couple of months. :/ Have a great week! :) Tammy

We had cinnamon toast all the time and I love it! The picture made me want some so badly!!!

We always buttered the bread, put cinnamon sugar on it and put it under the broiler in the oven! YUM

Stella, you are SO right. For dinner tonight I had a very simple, home-made broccoli/pea soup and it was DELICIOUS.

Hey Stella, I had a craving for cinnamon toast just the other day! I made two pieces and it just tasted heavenly! I, too, hadn't had it in such a long time. I'm glad to see that you are well. I've had a very busy summer and I'm glad to be getting back into a more normal routine. Stop by and visit, I'd love to hear from you.

Stella -- the real question is "how long is it going to be until I go and make myself a piece?" Yumm..thanks for the reminder.

It was a childhood treat for me -- tea (mostly milk) and toast then. now I'd join you in the strong cup of coffee to go with.

I didn't realize you grew up on a ranch way out west!

Hi Stella. Oh, I forgot all about cinnamon toast. I use to love it when I was a kid and dip it in hot cocoa on a cold morning. Yummy!

My Mum used to make french toast for me when I was little. I have never had it like you describe, I don't think it's common in England. I may try it for my little cousin, he LOVES cinnamon!

Marydon said...

A veryyyyy longggg time ago. Always had hot tea with mine. I got out of eating white bread & it didn't taste good on whole grains ... oh, yummy! I am going to have to break down ... I can smell it lingering in the air!

Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Hi, Stella,
Just a few days ago I had cinnamon toast. It seems I make it more this time of year. Maybe it is the autumn season. Cinnamon toast brings back many memories for me, too. My momma fixed it for me quite often. I always loved it and still do. Thank you so much for coming by for a visit. Have a happy, happy week, my friend~ Vicki

Hello Stella, thank you for your visit to my Blog. I have been playing catchup sine I was out of town for several days.

I LOVE cinnamon toast and it has been a long time since I have eaten any. I am getting the toaster out right now. Smile. Oh, and I like my strong coffee with a bit of sugar and cream. Mmmmm.

see you again soon,
Hugs, Jeanne

We ate cinnamon toast almost every morning for breakfast ~ with seven kids it was a cheap breakfast! What memories indeed!

Oh I have not had cinnamon toast in years and I loved it as a kid. I've got to give it another try!
