Life This Week 18/3/2019: It's MY Favourite!

My favourite weekend breakfast for the cooler months of autumn and winter is ...

Top Top's Cafe Style (go hard or go home) Raisin Toast.  

Peanut butter and honey is my preferred topping.  I consider it a #winwinwin situation when we're down to just the ends of the loaf.  For some reason, the end slices are always pretty thick on the Tip Top Cafe Fruit Loaf.  End slice toast is one of my favourite things in the world - it's the perfect combination of toastedness, crust and warmed bread within.

More recently, I've discovered the magic of homemade cinnamon sugar as an alternative topping to my toasted fruit loaf.  It's a winning combination of sweetness, spice and warmth.  It also seems healthier (to my mind) than just caving in and having a doughnut instead.

What's your favourite weekend breakfast?

Do you love the end slices of a loaf of bread?


  1. Cinnamon anything is the bomb. I just love it. And it's been awhile since I've had raison toast. Maybe I should get some! #Lifethisweek

  2. I love raisin toast but rarely have it at home. I just got a pie maker and you can make donuts in it - as they're baked and not fried, I have convinced myself that they're healthy so I can eat more of them! Hubby doesn't cook dinners but he always cooks breakfast at weekends, poached eggs, mushrooms and sourdough are staples with spinach and avo making an occasional appearance too! Now I want raisin toast for breakfast!

  3. I love both raisin toast and cinnamon sugar! But I haven't indulged in cinnamon sugar for quite a while. Craving it after reading this though!

  4. I must admit to not having bread or raisin toast (which I used to enjoy) for over 6 months or so. It's as a result of a checkup a while ago and I just haven't got back into eating either of them. I used to love peanut butter with honey on sandwiches as a kid and your post reminded me of them! Lovely to read of your favourites.#lifethisweek

  5. I love peanut butter and honey SSG but only on plain bread. I love the Cafe style Raisin Toast especially with Butter! Have a great week. x

  6. I've been loving my hot cross buns lately. My husband is a big fan of the chocolate ones but I still have the biggest place in my heart for the traditional tried and true. Nothing like a light toasting and plenty of butter with a cuppa in the afternoon.

  7. I love the smell of raisin toast but don't actually like raisins - so I don't eat it myself! :) Peanut Butter though...i could eat that from the jar. I do actually.

  8. Ever since I saw this post I remembered how much I used to like raisin toast (this one) drowned in butter and sprinkled with MY homemade cinnamon sugar. Looks like that will be on the list for Woolies this week. Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week's optional prompt is 12/51 Memories I'd Like To Re-Capture. Denyse
