Milk toast is a childhood favorite of mine: warm, thick vanilla pudding spooned over crisp buttered toast. We used to enjoy it on cold winter mornings, and I hope you will, too!
Serves: 10-12
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for serving
  • bread and butter
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove it from the heat and whisk in the flour. Add the milk and return to the heat. Add the sugar and cook, whisking, until the mixture boils. Whisk constantly and continue cooking the mixture for about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and cinnamon. Allow to cool for around 10 minutes. In the meantime, toast slices of bread and butter them. Pour the warm pudding mixture over the bread, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve.

    Laura made this one morning.. It was good. I grew up eating a milk gravy but it was not sweet. My Mother would use the drippings from the sausage she had cooked along with flour, milk, salt and pepper. I still make this occasionally.
