Milk Toast
Prep time
Total time
I researched several different recipes for milk toast and landed on this version of my own, which is a sweet milk toast (not savory).
Serves: 1 serving
  • 2 slices bread (preferably white and homemade!)
  • ½ cup milk (divided into 6 tablespoons and 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon flour
  • pinch salt
  • butter for toast
  • honey or cinnamon sugar for toast
  1. In a cereal bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of the milk with the flour, vanilla and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together the rest of the milk (6 tablespoons), sugar and the 1 teaspoon butter. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring regularly to avoid scorching. Cook until milk is steaming a lot and about to simmer. Give the cold milk-flour mixture a quick whisk then whisk it into the milk on the stove. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Toast bread, butter then cover with cinnamon sugar or drizzle with honey. Cut bread into bite-sized pieces then place in cereal bowl you used earlier. Pour milk mixture over the toast, stir and let sit for about 30 seconds, pressing the pieces of bread and stirring to get the toast to absorb the milk.
  4. Eat!
