Thick-cut Hawaiian sweet bread topped with a brûléed cinnamon-sugar crust is delicious for breakfast or a morning coffee break.
8 slices thick-cut sweet bread, brioche, or Texas toast
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1–1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla until combined.
Divide the butter mixture between the slices of bread and spread to completely cover the surface of each slice.
Place toasts on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling, about 2-3 minutes. Watch the toasts carefully so they don’t burn.
Remove from oven and cut each slice into 4 sticks or soldiers.
