I was challenged to share a Toast recipe for my I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Toast Ambassadorship. Now, some people might struggle to come up with a good toast recipe, but not this toaster savvy mama (lol!) I knew exactly what recipe I would be submitting!!
This is a super quick and super yummy breakfast recipe that I usually make when we are running a bit late, however, it’s so delicious that no one seems to mind. Honestly, it is one of my favorite quick and easy breakfast items. I have shared my Easy Bread recipe with you before, and I personally think that Smooshed Banana and Honey on Toast is best with this Easy Bread (recipe below) but you can of course make it with whatever bread you have on hand.
Here is what you will need to make Easy Bread:
3 Cups Warm Water (almost hot)
1 package Yeast (or 2 1/2 tsps)
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
5-6 cups flour (I have used many kinds of flour with this bread, so experiment and see what you like best)
First of all, combine your water, yeast, sugar and salt and let them sit for 5 minutes. Slowly start adding in your flour, and by the 4th or 5th cup of flour, I am usually using my hands. Add in flour as you need it (I usually use the full 6 cups) Continue kneading with your hands until dough is in a ball and is somewhat elastic. Spray a bowl with cooking spray and leave the dough ball in there for rise (covered) for about an hour. Now separate the dough into two parts (with floured hands) and knead each ball a little and then shape into a loaf and set each into a sprayed bread loaf pan. I then cover them with sprayed plastic wrap (to prevent sticking) and then cover that with a towel and put them up again for another hour to rise. Now you are ready to bake them for 20-25 minutes in a 350 oven.
This recipe really is SO easy… and while the total time is over 2 hours (almost 3), it only takes a quick minute to do each step, which is why I can fit this into my day so easily.
Ok…now back to the Smooshed Banana and Honey on Toast Recipe. First get your bread nice and toasted in the toaster. While you are going that… you will want to smash up a banana or two in a small bowl. (I like a banana that is just starting to get ripe, so it’s nice and mooshy but not too mooshy. ) The next step is very important…you MUST butter your bread (of course, I use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® (original) Butter) and then spread the smooched banana on top and then drizzle with warm honey. The combination of butter, banana and honey is just …. over.the.top.YUM.
To be honest, I “invented” this recipe when I was in college. I lived in a sorority and the kitchen would get locked up at certain hours, but some items were left out for us to snack on … including: fruit, honey/butter/peanut butter/etc and of course … bread. It was born out of a college students appetite AND budget … and I still make it to this day!
Honestly, I am not joking … the yummiest little slice of heaven! Enjoy!!
