We miss going to Sunmerry, our local favorite Asian Bakery Cafe. We come here at least twice a week. My husband’s favorite thing here is their Honey Cheese Toast. He usually gets this with a cup of coffee. I have tried a couple of times to recreate it but I can’t seem to get the texture and taste I was looking for. Until I finally nailed it today.
So to begin you will need some thick sliced bread or Skokupan. I don’t have this right now so I just used some whole wheat bread slices. Toast this for a bit but don’t let it get brown. Set aside.
To make your topping, place in a double boiler, 1/4 cup milk, 3 slices American cheese (cut up) and about 1 Tbsp butter. Let this melt and cook until somewhat thickened. This will take about 10-15 minutes. Then add around 1-2 Tbsp. honey and 1/2 tsp. sugar. Stir until sugar has melted.
Get your bread slices and carefully cover the entire surface with the cheese mixture. Place in your oven toaster and cook until brown on top. This doesn’t take long so make sure not to leave it unattended. Let it cool for bit before serving so your topping has time to set a bit. It pairs well with coffee or tea.
