Breakfast Sweet Toast

This recipe comes from a few off-days that had me waking up with a sudden craving for lot’s of sugar. Enter cinnamon crunch toast – an American cult flavour! I had the luck of a delicious loaf of sourdough in the kitchen, and I grilled it in good old fashioned butter and granulated sugar and a dusting of cinnamon, topped it with a caramelised grilled pineapple for the extra loving juice and of course, fresh strawberries – because life is always better with strawberries!

Eat with the hands, allowing the butter to drip down your fingers and mouth, and fall in love with life, all over again!
