Sprinkle No. 35

I got a little behind with the holiday weekend.
Today feels like a Tuesday, so … it must be time for a new sprinkle.


Your *sprinkle* this week is to sit down (this is important) and eat some cinnamon toast.
Why? Because cinnamon toast is easy to make, tastes really yummy and makes you feel special.
Don’t you think?

Just for fun, I Googled “cinnamon toast” and discovered this recipe on the Joy of Baking website. Who knew? I tell you, the Internet is amazing.

Cinnamon Toast: In a small bowl mix sugar with cinnamon, adjusting the ratio of sugar to cinnamon to your own particular taste.

Toast the bread until golden brown, on both sides, either under the oven’s broiler, on a grill, or in a toaster oven. Butter one side of the toast and sprinkle generously with the cinnamon sugar. If desired, place the cinnamon toast under the oven’s broiler until the sugar has melted and starts to bubble. Remove from oven, cut the slices of cinnamon toast in half, and eat straight away.

Serves 2-3.

Note: If you have a child or children, then take this opportunity to teach them how to make cinnamon sugar and put it in some kind of container that will dispense it properly. I like this Pampered Chef Flour & Sugar Shaker Note: I generally mix 1 tsp. cinnamon with 1/2 cup sugar.




  1. Yummy! When I was a kid we always had a shaker of sugar and cinnamon in the cupboard. I can see that green jar with the silver top with holes clearly. Thanks for bringing back that memory. I think I will have some cinnamon toast this week, it’s been years!

    • Hey Kristie,
      Who has the green jar with the silver top? Can you get a photo? I recently took a photo of the little ceramic elephant that my mom put syrup in. This picture makes me so happy!

  2. Oh this is so up there with a yummy cup of hot chocolate!! We have that shaker but have powdered sugar in it for “sprinkling” our French Toast.

    • Ann,
      I originally purchased the Pampered Chef shaker for flour. I then purchased two more (for powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar) — gotta sprinkle!

        LOVE that you have & use more than one Pampered Chef Flour/Sugar shaker! I have 2 myself and am a Pampered Chef Consultant! LOVE their products! :)

  3. We had cinnamon toast for dessert tonight.
    Thank you, I had forgotten how good it is.

    Stacy, I wanted to leave a comment for Sprinkles #32 Wave and Be Waved, but the feature doesn’t remain once there’s a new post, so I hope you don’t mind if I leave it here.
    When I was 15 I was driving with my Nana around downtown Sacramento, and I asked her why she never waived back at people who waved at her. She told me that in some towns it’s just not safe, unlike where she grew up. We were both sad for this.
    I used to have a friend who would wave at everyone (in a small mountain town, also in California), especially the police officers. Everyone else thought he was wierd for waving at cops. He just replied that they were always nice to him, so he must be doing something right.
    The last part of my (ahem) long comment is about my little cousin, when he was about 7. I was walking him to the corner store because he really wanted to get an icecream, and I taught him a magic trick. I said, “Look at that man walking toward us on the sidewalk. He doesn’t look very happy, does he? I’ll bet if you show him your best smile as we walk by, you’ll make him a little happier, and we’ll know because he’ll smile back.” Sure enough, the surly elderly man couldn’t stop himself from grinning when he saw the biggest smile my cousin ever shared. For the rest of the walk, he smiled at every single person who looked his way, and kept getting the same response. It was magic!
    Thank you for these sprinkles, especially the ones involving the spread of joy.

  5. Stacy, I just made cinnamon toast for my 8 year old for the first time this weekend. I too had forgotton its deliciousness! And Matthew just LOVED it! He’s such a funny kid…he said to me, “Don’t you just love summer? You get to do anything you want!” Wow….inspired by cinnamon toast! :)

  6. Re: #32… my 10 month old son and I have been practising waiving ever since your post. (He’s 11 months as of yesterday.) waiving has never meant so much to me or my husband. It is acknowledging the person as if to say, “I see you, and you matter to me.” plus as a bonus my baby is especially cute. :)
