Colorful Toast, by Anna Maynard
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • White bread (it’s more colorful that way!)
  • Food coloring
  • Milk
  • Brush of any kind (pastry brush makes for broad coverage, smaller brushes allow for some design work)
  1. Mix a bit of food coloring with a bit of milk. Next you brush the milk on the bread “very delicately” (those are Anna’s instructions and she’s right on the money – don’t get too heavy handed with the milk or the bread will get too soggy).
  2. Toast, butter and eat!
  3. The top doesn’t get crispy, but the bottom does and there is actually a sweetness that is left behind as the milk evaporates. Very fun!
