Shibuya Honey Toast Recipe – Japanese Brick Toast

honey toast recipe

When I first heard the name Shibuya Honey Toast, I immediately thought of something that looked or tasted like French toast, but with maybe a cherry blossom, dragonfly or carp on them. However, what it is, is a far more delightful food that you eat like a dessert.

Shibuya Honey Toast - It's a delicious and attractive lighter dessert your friends and family will love.

Of course, you could eat it for breakfast, but you can also eat cold pizza and candy for breakfast, even though that’s not normally done. Japanese cuisine is known for the decorative presentation and Shibuya honey toast is no exception.

It’s a delightful way to make a simple dessert far more elegant. It’s also very yummy and that’s extremely important too.

How to Make this Honey Toast

You need to start with a loaf of uncut bread to make this dish. The magic of the dish is the carving of the bread and the re-assembly. It’s simple but still looks like a work of art.

You need a loaf of un-sliced bread that’s at least five inches long. Cut that in half, then make incisions across each side one inch from the center.

In one side, preferably the one with the bottom crust, don’t go all the way through, but stop about an inch from the bottom.

In order to get the inside out of the other loaf, start at an inch from the bottom, slicing the bread horizontally one inch from each side, leaving the bottom on but allowing you to pull the square of bread from the center, leaving a square “container.”

Cut the squares you cut from the bread into even smaller squares. Whisk together butter, sugar, and vanilla until mixed well and spread on all sides of the bread squares and the inside and top of the bread frames you created. Bake in a preheated 360-degree oven until golden brown.

This is a delicious and attractive lighter dessert your friends and family will love.

    For the Butter:
  1. In a mixing bowl of ⅓ cup of softened unsalted butter, add in ¼ cup of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. And whisk until homogeneous.

    Assemble and Garnish:
  1. Fill the inside of the brick with bottom using bread cubes and banana slices (you can add any fruit of your choice).
  2. Drizzle the honey on top. And place the hollow brick over the first brick, twisting slightly. And again fill it with bread cubes and fruit slices.

Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks Recipe

how-to-make-cinnamon-french-toast-1

Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks – Breakfast you can eat with your fingers and dip in syrup, rather than pour syrup all over it. There’s something quite sensual about touching your food. Wow! What a great discovery!

how to make cinnamon french toast

french toast cinnamon stick - Breakfast you can eat with your fingers and dip in syrup

Maybe it’s the long-heralded taboo about playing with food, maybe it’s just the tactile experience, but if I could eat all my meals with my fingers, I would.

Soup is perhaps the only food that doesn’t appeal to me as finger food, but you can put it in a cup and drink it!

That’s one reason these dipping sticks were so appealing. Not only can you eat them with your fingers, there’s no plate with maple syrup smeared all over it when you’re done.

Of course, you have to put the syrup somewhere for dipping, which is another use for my ramekin set. Since you coat these with sugar and cinnamon after you cook them, you don’t even need syrup for them to taste delicious.

cinnamon roll french toast

You can have plenty of fun with these easy cinnamon French toast sticks when it comes to serving them.

They look like giant Legos if you’ve cut the crust off the bread before you quartered it, so you can build them up on the serving plate to create your own breakfast house and let the family do the demolition.

Favorite Recipes:

All the cinnamon French toast sticks I’ve ever eaten has been a bit soggy and limp, not at all appropriate for eat-with-your-fingers food. If you want your French toast sticks to hold their shape, you need to use stale bread.

Bread that hasn’t been sliced is best since you can make the dipping sticks thicker, which helps them to be firmer and less floppy.

While using stale bread may also be good for making regular French toast, somehow it wouldn’t seem the same it wasn’t a little limp.

You’ll find some bread almost ready to use if you look for the quick sale or manager’s special bin in the bakery area of your grocery store, making the sticks a great bargain too!

Easy Homemade Pancakes – Stuffed Nutella Pancakes

make pancake from scratch

Easy Homemade Pancakes|Stuffed Nutella Pancakes -If you love pancakes, but need gobs of syrup in order for them to be satisfying, you’ll appreciate the full flavor of the Nutella pancakes. Nutella may be a childhood favorite but it also is packed with plenty of protein you won’t get from an ordinary pancake.

make pancake from scratch

Stuffed Nutella Pancake - so easy to make

You also won’t need extra butter or a half of a bottle of syrup to help these bad boys go down your gullet with ease.

Nutella adds protein to the carbs of the pancake without adding a huge amount of calories. Since you can cut down on the syrup, I like to think of it as a dieters delight. However, I’m sure it’s still probably not on Weight Watchers must eat food list or any other dieting list. It’s a decadent treat but still is healthier than some others.

pancakes from scratch recipe-

This recipe is an easy way to add Nutella to your pancakes. There’s no “spreading it” on the pancake, a task I hate even when I’m using butter, let alone a jar of Nutella. You also don’t have to drop it onto the pancake as it’s cooking.

That’s so difficult it should be an Olympic sport. Instead, you freeze little discs of Nutella and then just pop a disc onto the pancake batter as it cooks and tops it with more batter.

Instantly, you have stuffed Nutella pancakes. The best part of this is that you’re always ready to make these yummy treats since the discs are waiting for you in the freezer. You don’t have to make sure you have your jar of Nutella in the cupboard. In my house, it doesn’t last long!

easy homemade pancakes

To make the discs, you need parchment paper—baking paper, a baking tray that fits in your freezer and Nutella. Put a dollop—about two tablespoons—of the Nutella on the paper and spread it around until it forms a disc that’s about two to two and a half inches in diameter.

It should be about a half inch thick. If it’s too thick, it oozes out of the pancake and too thin is not nearly as satisfying.

how to make pancake easy

Create as many as you can fit on the tray and allow them to freeze, then pack in a freezer bag. I wrap each one in plastic wrap to keep them from sticking—even though they’re frozen.

When it’s time for pancakes, take out as many as you need. Use your favorite easy homemade pancakes recipe and top them with fresh strawberries for a breakfast that will have the family begging for more.

Strawberry Nutella Cinnamon Roll French Toast Recipe

Cinnamon Roll French Toast – If your family is like mine, every once in a while we have breakfast for supper, such as omelets or a scramble.

However, even though French toast is often reserved for breakfast, this isn’t a meal but a decadent dessert that you can also use to start your day or be the main attraction at a brunch.

In fact, it is an easy-to-make dish for a shower or just a family get-together that will have everyone, regardless of age, coming back for more.

cinnamon french toast recipe

Since simple is always the goal in my kitchen, these are the perfect dish. In case you’re not familiar with the acronym KISS, it stands for “keep it simple, stupid” and was part of my training in my previous life.

If you’ve never had Nutella, it’s a combination hazelnut-chocolate spread with the consistency of peanut butter. You can try substituting a variety of different ingredients for the Nutella, such as cream cheese, but the nutty chocolaty goodness of the Nutella enhances the flavor of the strawberries.

If you want to get a bit fancy, you can try this Shibuya Honey Toast recipe that will blow your mind. It’s a delightful way to make a simple dessert far more elegant. It’s also very yummy and that’s extremely important too.

cinnamon french toast recipe

cinnamon french toast recipe

There are two keys to making this recipe and both are easy.

The first is to cut the edges off the bread and roll it flat with a rolling pin.

The second is to spread the bread with the Nutella, adding the strawberries (or any of your favorite fruits) and rolling it before you dip it in the egg/milk mixture and cook it.

The Nutella seals the roll up so there’s no need for toothpicks while you cook. When you’re finished, roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture for the final step.

The entire process takes only about ten minutes but the finished product looks like it took you hours and tastes so divine everyone will want more.

You can make the roll ups the night before, but don’t dip them in egg mixture until you’re ready to cook and serve the roll ups.

It takes about four minutes to cook on each side when the roll ups are at room temperature and a job you can do yourself at a party or assign to a helper.

Serve Your Bacon and Eggs in Toast Cups

Easy Breakfast Recipes with Eggs – I absolutely love making breakfast. Of all the meals, breakfast is the most fun. I guess that’s because I normally only make it on the weekend and the whole family is there.

easy breakfast recipes with eggs

During the week, everyone grabs their own breakfast that varies from cooked cereal with sliced avocado and hot sauce—definitely not my breakfast—to peanut butter and jelly on toast, my specialty, sometimes stretching to toaster waffles with peanut butter and maple syrup.

easy breakfast recipes with eggs

Even though it’s our family’s breakfast, most of the time it’s actually brunch, so I often serve omelets stuffed with meat, veggies, and cheese.

However, when I want a really special breakfast, it’s appearance plays just as much of a role in selecting it as the ingredients I use.

While family-style meals are great, individual servings seem to make the meal more upscale and special. I’m not talking about serving an egg with toast on a plate either. I want something special that really looks like it took more time and effort than it actually did.

It not only makes your family feel more special, it brings super kudos to the cook—me—and I’m always willing to accept any praise, whether well deserved or not.

easy breakfast recipes with eggs

The recipe combines all the favorites of breakfast, bacon, eggs, and toast but the presentation is so unique and elegant it will seem more like a gourmet meal.

Just as with any elegant recipe, you have to cut the crust off the bread and add one extra step, roll it flat with a rolling pin.

From that point on, it’s almost business as usual, only simpler. You grease the cups of a muffin tin and line them with the bread, then top those with bacon that’s almost crisp.

Just crack the egg into the center of this and bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven.

  2. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds.
  3. Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
  4. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.)

Cinnamon French Toast Casserole for Your Next Brunch

I fell in love with breakfast casseroles many years ago when I had a Saturday morning business appointment in the other party’s home. Rather than just serving coffee, this person went out of their way to make me feel welcome by serving a cheesy bacon and egg casserole.

Not only was the gesture extremely nice, even though it wasn’t necessary, but the casserole was also delicious and opened my mind to a wider variety of menus for breakfast, particularly when serving a group.

The French toast casserole is no different. It’s easy and serves a group and a bit different than many of the other breakfast casseroles I often serve.

Cinnamon French Toast
cinnamon French toast
You won’t need syrup for this French toast since you create a sauce for the bottom that will provide plenty of sweet goodness. There’s also no dipping bread in egg mixture since you pour it over the bread.

It’s simple and easy, but best of all, you make it the night before and have it ready to bake in the refrigerator the next morning, making it easy when you least want to rush.

french-toast-6-1a
french-toast-5-1

For the syrupy bottom layer, combine a stick of melted butter with a cup of brown sugar, mixing it well. Pour it in the bottom of a 9X13 pan and then layer it with Texas toast, which you can find in your freezer section.

Put them close together so you don’t have any gaps. You can leave the crusts on the toast or remove them for a more attractive appearance. I leave them on for the family, but remove them when guests are going to be partaking. Sprinkle with a cinnamon and sugar mixture.

french-toast-4-1
Mix four beaten eggs, 1 ½ cups of milk, a tablespoon of powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla until blended. Pour half of the mixture over the Texas toast. Top with another layer of Texas toast and top off with the remaining mixture and then sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar on top.

You can use brown or white sugar for this. Let it set in the refrigerator overnight. When you’re ready for it in the morning, all you have to do is bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes then sprinkle with powdered sugar for a finishing touch.

If you want to make it a holiday special, cut a stencil with a holiday pattern out and sprinkle the sugar over it to create a design on the top of the casserole.

Delectable Garlic Cheese Bread

This bread reminds me a bit of the potato we used to make for a campfire or for those of you with an even fancier palette, Hasselback potatoes.

The potatoes were sliced partially through and then cheese or onion slices—or both—were put in between those partial slices with butter.

homemade-garlic-cheese-bread-1web

They were wrapped in foil and thrown into the fire to cook. Of course, Hasselback potatoes don’t stuff the slices, but they both look similar when done. The garlic cheese bread will have that same stuffed appearance when you’re done.

You can make your own French bread or purchase a loaf you can simply pop in the oven. If you make your own, use a recipe that’s a bit sweeter, such as one containing honey. I make up several batches of bread dough and freeze it in loaves so it’s always ready.

garlic-cheese-bread-1

You do have to use cake yeast and double the amount you use to compensate for the yeast that dies in the freezer. It lasts in the freezer for a month.

If you use frozen bread dough, let it thaw first. Form a French loaf, but twist it, so as it rises it stays just as long as you originally planned, otherwise it tends to pull together for a shorter fatter loaf. Bake it almost until done and remove from the oven to brush with melted herbed garlic butter.

garlic-cheese-bread-2-1

You can purchase this at most stores or make it yourself. You just combine butter with minced garlic and any herbs you like; I love chives with mine or basil, then mix thoroughly.

You can even freeze it and cut off whatever you want when you need it. Bake about seven minutes longer.

garlic-cheese-bread-3-1

Let the bread cool a bit before you start on the next step, approximately 15 minutes. Cut one-inch slices that don’t go all the way through the bread, approximately 3/4ths of the way through it.

Brush the insides of the slice with more melted butter and stick a slice of your favorite cheese into it.

garlic-cheese-bread-4-1

Return it to the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. I’ve often thought of wrapping the bread in foil and putting it on the grill for the final step to get that same smoky flavor I get from the potatoes, but let’s face it, it might not work well and it would be a horror to lose a loaf of this because of experimenting.

Make up two at a time because you’ll need it even if you have a small family. I justify my consumption of this delectable bread by using butter and cheese from grass-fed cows, making it a health food rather than an indulgence.

Hasselback Garlic Cheese Bread

Ingredients

1 hour, 25 minutes
3
1041.27 kcal
  1. 1 cup Warm Water
  2. 1 Tablespoon Honey
  3. 1 envelope Active Dry Yeast (2 1/4 Teaspoons)
  4. 1 teaspoon Salt
  5. 3 cups Bread Flour
  6. 1 tbsp Olive Oil, For Greasing Surfaces
  7. ⅓ pounds Sharp White Cheddar, Or Any Other Cheese You Prefer
  8. ½ cups Garlic Butter

Instructions

Prep
1 hour
Cook
25 minutes
Ready in
1 hour, 25 minutes
  1. In a large bowl, stir water, honey and yeast together. Let yeast proof 5 minutes. Once you know yeast is active, stir in salt and the flour in 1/4 cup increments. If you are using a stand mixer, be sure to not increase your speed higher than a 2 or ‘stir’.
  2. Once dough starts pulling away from the sides and the bowl seems to be pretty clean, set a timer for 5 minutes and walk away. Let the machine knead the dough.
  3. After 5 minutes, dough should be smooth and tacky but when touched shouldn’t leave any dough on your fingers.
  4. Grease the bowl and the dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Punch down dough and cut into two equal portions. Form into two long baguettes the length of the cookie sheet. I like to twist mine because it looks cool, but it also keeps its length and doesn’t shrink. Cover with plastic wrap and rise 30 minutes. Start to preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place dough close to the oven where it’s nice and warm. Once oven is preheated, remove plastic wrap, from the dough reduce oven to 350F, put the bread into the oven and bake 20 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, slice the cheese into thin slices and melt the butter.
  7. Pull loaves of bread out of the oven after 20 minutes and brush with the melted garlic butter. Bake another 5-7 minutes or until bread begins to turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes.
  8. Cut 1-inch slices 3/4′s of the the way through the loaves. Brush garlic butter in between each slice and fill with a slice of cheese. Bake another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  9. Serve immediately.

Bacon and Pepper-Jack Stuffed Crescent Rolls

I’m always looking for special ways to show my family how much I care. Of course, if they’re easy, that’s even better. Sometimes I show that love by making a special treat, which may end up being a signature snack for not just my family, but the whole neighborhood.

That’s what my bacon and pepper-jack stuffed crescent rolls have become. They’re a quick fix when I have a company that doesn’t require a lot of effort but looks like it does.

You can’t beat that combination, no matter how hard you try. The only thing you need to do is to make sure you have the supplies on hand.

recipes with crescent rolls
One of the biggest tasks in making these rolls is to fry the bacon. That is never a problem. Since each batch uses 6 slices of bacon, a pound of bacon will give you enough for three batches. I like to slice my bacon into pieces, put it in the frying pan and cook.

I then drain it and divide up into three smaller freezer bags with a date on them, for future use. That way, I always have bacon on hand and ready to use.

Cheese keeps well in the refrigerator, just as crescent rolls do and when you use the packages you have, simply replace them and you’ll always be ready for a special night or company.

While it doesn’t happen very often, sometimes I still have a tube of crescent rolls left that have a short time to expiration. It’s at that time that I look to my creativity for inspiration. I can celebrate anything with this special treat and boost my standing.

Suppose Johnny got straight A’s or your hubby noticed your new hairdo. Time for bacon delicious cheesy rolls! I’ve even thought of using these for operant conditioning, although it seemed a bit sinister.

However, if you never tell your family that you’re using the rolls before they expire, no one will be the wiser and you’ll not only be the best person around, you’ll always be prepared for the company at all times.
