Burnt Sugar Toast

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by 5thCourse

A 5-minute breakfast idea. When experimenting with how to toast bread in a pan, I added brown sugar to the pan and out came a beautifully toasted candied creation. Add some cinnamon or spread with fresh butter. This recipe is for one person, just cook up as many slices as needed.

Quick yummy treat. I bump it up to 5 stars for the "quick and easy" factor. After the pan gets hot it is really easy to burn the sugar. Probably 30 seconds or less per side of bread. I used a heaping tsp of sugar for each side and kind of stirred the slice of bread around in my little non-stick skillet to spread the sugar around and not miss any. I used whole wheat bread. I was curious to try brown sugar, but just used white this time. Made for DD and myself and we enjoyed it. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread one to two tablespoons brown sugar per piece of bread evenly in bottom of pan so that the bread will cover.
  2. Heat pan to about medium heat.
  3. Place bread over sugar, and watch carefully as sugar will burn quickly. Adjust heat as needed.
  4. When sugar is melting and bread is as toasted as you like, flip over, adding more sugar if needed.
