Honey toast is a Japanese dessert that is the best finish to any meal. The warm toast absorbs all the butter, then that mixture combined with the sweetness of honey and ice cream really take it home.
The first time I had honey toast was at a random Asian coffee shop that served honey toast. I didn't know what to expect but it was amazing. The bread gets baked in butter and honey and is then served with ice cream and toppings. I've had various mini versions at sushi restaurants and other spots. Honey toast has always been so good to me so I finally decided to make my own.
I ventured out to find the correct bread to make honey toast. I went to THREE stores in hopes of finding the correct bread. After searching in location after location, the last one finally had three loaves that would work. And alas, this honey toast was born.
1 whole loaf Japanese bread
1 stick butter melted 3 tbsp honey
Ice cream to stuff - vanilla, rocky road
Fruit to top - kiwi, strawberries, blueberries
Kitkat or whatever you want, snickers, etc to top
Caramel to top
Whipped cream to top (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Get your whole bread. Cut the square and hollow out the inside. Cut out the bread. Cut into squares.
Using a crush, brush butter all over the inside of both toasts.
Distribute the cubed bread between the two toasts.
Drizzle both with honey. Lots of honey. Then brush the tops with butter.
Bake at 30 for 10-15 minutes or until slightly crisp.
Cut desired fruit into thin, small pieces.
Take out of the oven and fill with ice cream, top with fruit, and whipped cream. Drizzle with caramel, honey and top with KitKat.
So, what are you waiting for?
This recipe is so easy and such a fun dessert. It's massive so I suggest sharing. But mama didn't raise no b#$%....... so you already know I demolished mine... and my daughter ate her whole one. Let's just say we both had the best day ever.
