Butter Toast with Condensed Milk

All over Asia, people love their snacks and street food. One of my all time favorite indulgences is this Sweet Butter Toast drizzled with condensed milk. Thick, dense Asian white bread is so good on its own and in this super easy recipe, it’s on steroids. Thick slices of white bread get lightly browned with butter before drizzling with the creamy sweetness of condensed milk. While we definitely shouldn’t be eating this on a daily basis, it is one of those Asian street snacks that fills the spirit and brings us back to childhood days. Indulge once in a while and pair it with a hot green or white tea to balance both flavors and sinfulness.

Serves 4


4 slices thick Asian white bread

2 heaping tablespoons butter

Condensed milk to drizzle


In a skillet or wide pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter on medium high heat until melted.

Place the bread slices into the butter and allow to toast for about 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown. Add the rest of the butter once one side is brown, right before flipping the slices over. Again, allow the bread to toast for another minute or so until the second side is also golden brown. (If you don’t have a large enough skillet or pan to fit all four slices, you may have to do this step in two batches, in which case you should divide the butter into the appropriate amounts).

Place the toasted bread on serving plates. Using a spoon, drizzle condensed milk generously over the toasted bread. Serve immediately.
