Cinnamon Maple Toasties

My daughter sent this recipe to me. She said it looks simple and delicious. I agreed and decided to make them right away. I have made them a number of times, at first I rolled them up in little rolls and placed them in a muffin tin to bake. This method is even simpler and they are a really quick delicious snack. You can use white bread if you like, we prefer 60% whole wheat bread.

  • 12 bread slices
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Glaze
  1. Cut off crust from a slice of bread and using a rolling pin roll slice until very thin.
  2. Spread both sides of slice with melted butter.
  3. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle one side of the slice of bread with sugar mixture.
  4. Fold over half of the slice with the sugar/cinnamon mixture to the inside to form a triangle and place on a parchment lined pan. Repeat with all the slices.
  5. Bake in a 375ยบ oven for 15 minutes or until they start to brown and are a little crispy.
  6. Drizzle with glaze while still warm. 
  7. If you want smaller servings cut these triangles in half. 
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • Add enough water to make a thin glaze. 


  1. And the sugar/cinnamon gets folded to the inside or crisped on the outside? Sounds really good!

  2. Doreen..the cinnamon sugar mixture gets folded to the inside.

  3. When my grandchildren come, they love to eat cinnamon toast. I can't wait to let them try this variety. Thanks.

  4. This looks good, I linked this recipe back to you on m blog :)

  5. Looks like something quick, easy, and tasty to fix for our granddaughter--thank you!

  6. mmm! my kids love cinnamon rolls so this would be a great quick alternative. I think using tortillas would work well for this. actually, I make a cinnmon sugar tortilla chip. I spray the whole wheat tortillas with water then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. cut into triangles and bake in the oven at 350 until crispy. so easy and so good!


  7. Thanks, Betty, I will try this!-D

  8. This would be a great after-school snack.

  9. looks like comfort food at it;s finest!

  10. I agree with Peggy, two grandsons are coming over this weekend and they will LOVE this, thank you for sharing.

  11. Wow...I can hardly wait to try this in the morning! (I followed a link from Bag Lady's Blather and am I ever glad I did!)

  12. I do something similar to this but I roll up the bread, and I add a little cream cheese.

  13. This looks like a fun recipe to try with my grade 1 and 2 class...more filling than cookies or crackers for snack time with the whole wheat bread!

  14. This reminds me of my dad! He used to make something just like this as a sneaky treat if mom was gone in the morning. Great post, I think I will make some tonight.
