A Guide to Honey Toast
What Is Honey Toast?
Honey toast is made from white bread that is toasted and topped with ice cream, cookies, candy, syrup, fruit, cereal, or sweet spreads to complete the dessert. The white bread should be thick and fluffy and able to hold an array of delectable toppings of different flavors and textures.
The toast itself is made from a whole rectangular loaf cut into a cube with crust on five sides. The center of the loaf is cut out and then sliced. Melted butter and warm honey are brushed on each slice as well as the interior of the loaf.
Sugar is sprinkled over the slices, and the bread is baked until golden. The toasted bread slices can be served as is with any delicious confections, or they can be reset inside the hollowed loaf to make a gorgeous presentation.
