Place each slice onto the pan and cook the toast until golden on both sides. ( Approximately 45 seconds per side.) Sprinkle sugar over the bread while it’s in the pan before flipping it – this will create a crunchy layer of caramelized sugar.

Step 6. Serve and Enjoy!

    For quite a while I read different areas of your site and enjoyed the Bread Making site of Fanny Farmer – Boston. I think I learned a little.

    Step number 1 should be the step AFTER all of the ingredients were prepared. If you put BUTTER on medium-high,walk away, and do the other steps, your butter will be burned. Never walk away from a pan that is on especially with something as touchy as butter in it.
