For the cinnamon toast

  • 1 small loaf rustic sourdough (a loaf big enough for 6 slices of bread) - with the ends cut off
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (85 grams) - at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (55 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the cereal milk

  • 1 cup cereal flakes (40 grams) (I used Kellogg's Special K)
  • 1 1/3 cups milk (390 milliliters)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk


Make the cereal milk

  • In a large bowl, soak the cereal in the milk for 20 minutes. Prepare the cinnamon toast during this time.
  • Once the cereal milk is done soaking, strain out the cereal using a fine strainer. You may need to let the cereal sit over the strainer for about 5 minutes, otherwise you can gently push the cereal against the strainer using a spoon, being careful not to allow pieces of soggy cereal through the strainer.
  • In a small saucepan, simmer the cereal milk with the condensed milk for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Make the cinnamon toast

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.
  • Slice the sourdough into 3/4-inch slices.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  • Spread the butter evenly over each slice of bread, making sure to spread the butter all the way to the edges.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Switch to the broiler, and broil until the tops of toast are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven.

To serve

  • Plate the cinnamon toast and gently pour the warm cereal milk over it. Serve immediately, or let it soak for about 5 minutes if you prefer.
