Bakers Delight Recipe Bank – Honey Toast Box

I have a love/hate relationship with bread :P I love it…but then I get all carb-loaded and slightly bloated if I eat too much, but nonetheless, I love my bread! Anyhow, Kathryn from Left PR contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in developing a recipe for Bakers Delight and their recipe bank ~ rules were simply, use any Bakers Delight product and make a recipe :)

I was so worried whether or not I would be able to come up with a recipe, because generally I just eat my bread as a compliment with Nutella, condensed milk or jam ~ So after accepting the challenge, I gave it a good think…’What can I do with bread…what type of bread….Toast….TOAST BOX’! Then I thought of the honey toast box I’ve had in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Basically it’s a block of bread, hollowed, covered in honey and butter and then toasted after that what you do with it is entirely up to you :P I love topping it with loads of ice-cream, sauce and nuts!

Recipe – Honey Toast Box an original recipe by Daisy@Nevertoosweet

Yield – One small box 

Ingredients
43 grams (3 tablespoon) Unsalted Butter
1 small Baker Delight White Loaf bread
2 tablespoon of honey

Additional:
Ice-cream of your choice
Toppings (nuts, chocolate chips, fruit) of your choice

Ingredients

Ingredients

Method
1) Preheat your oven to 180°C or 350°F
2) Using a serrated knife slice approximately 1/4 of the loaf off, to make it more of a ‘square’ shape.

3) Carefully make a slit on the base of box, then begin hollowing the bread box by leaving a 1cm around the edges along the base of the box. Gently remove the slices of bread from the centre.

4) Place butter and honey in a microwaveable bowl and heat until melted and mix to combine.

5) Brush honey and butter mixture all over the toast boast including the insides, you can let it soak in a little before reapplying to make the bread sweeter. Do the same to the bread sticks.

Be careful really hot mixture

6) Place bread sticks and bread box onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and place into the oven for 10 to 13 minutes. Turn the bread sticks every 3 to 5 minutes to prevent burning.

7) Once the bread has toasted remove from oven and let it cool slightly, before slowly replacing the bread sticks back into the toast box.

Notes
– You can purchase a whole loaf of white bread from your local Bakers Delight or bakeries, simply ask them not to slice it.
– You can use stale bread, will make slicing even easier
– Can omit the honey and make a savoury toast box :)

By now you should be able to smell the delicious toast box :) It’s complete! Now let you imagination go wild! You can top the honey toast box with ANYTHING absolutely anything ~

I chose to top my honey toast box with Honeycomb and Butterscotch ice-cream, chocolate sauce and chopped rocky road! It was AMAZING if I can say so myself :)

I made another one and this time it was topped with vanilla ice-cream, salted caramel sauce and almonds. I think I liked this one a bit more because I love salted caramel hehe

There you go this is my recipe that I am submitting for the Baker Delight Recipe Bank ~ I really hope you like it and will try making this at home sometime! It’s super easy, great way to use up stale bread and makes a very indulgent and naughty brunch or dessert :P

    A savoury toast box? Now, you’re talking in MY language! :D

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 4:16 pm Reply

      Hahhaa you can totally omit the honey and make a savoury one with ham and cheese they do that in Taiwan ;)

    Yum, I have the same reaction to carbs, but my gosh this looks good.

    Salted caramel sauce toast box sounds devine!!!

      Divine!!!!! (I hate typos!)

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 3:58 pm Reply

      All good :) I didn’t even notice the typo hehe ~ hope you try making it for your kiddies soon bet they’ll love it!

    Ok, now I have to ask: when I got “french toast” at the university canteen, it was “kind of” similar to this idea of a bit piece of hard/baked bread. I made a complete fool of myself trying to eat it with a plastic fork and knife. So… can you explain how you’re meant to eat this hard bread? Or is it not hard following your recipe? :)

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 12, 2013 at 7:07 pm Reply

      I know exactly what you mean it’s hard as rock and very hard to eat :) But trust me as long as the bread is relatively fresh and you don’t over bake it, it wont be hard ~ especially the bread sticks inside the box is soft and yum :) Hope you will try this recipe and it will work for you!

    Very creative.
    As you know caramel isn’t my fave, so I’d have to go for:
    Honey Toaste Box with honeycomb butterscotch ice-cream chocolate sauce and chopped rocky road

    Coz that sounds nomnomz… maybe… minus the butterscotch :P

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 12:48 am Reply

      Hahaha you know not many people I know don’t like caramel :P But I respect you hehe or maybe you could top it with condense milk, jam or peanut butter instead? You can omit the honey and make it a savoury toast box too with eggs, ham and cheese just as NOMZZZ ;)

    That looks amazing!!! (: Reminds me of the honey toast I had in Bangkok! hehe Would love to give this a go! Good job babe!! xx

      Thank you hun :) Did you have the honey toast at a place called Toast Box? They’re everywhere in HK lol ~ Super relieved it turned out well! xox

      • liannelow March 11, 2013 at 5:57 pm Reply

        haha we have toast box in Singapore too but they don’t have honey toast! I had it in Bkk! hehe WAS YUM! x

    Pure indulgence!! Reminds me a bit of HK char chan tang type of french toast things :P

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 12:45 am Reply

      Yes yes it reminded me of it too :) Except I think we need condense milk to make it more like the HK char chan tang style hehe ~

  9. Hannah March 10, 2013 at 2:48 pm Reply

    Holy heck I need!! OMG put peanut butter in with the butter and honey mixture!!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 12:45 am Reply

      Good idea I was thinking of using condensed milk next time hehe :)

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 12:42 am Reply

      Yes yes :) that’s where I got the inspiration from hehe Toast Box they have it in HK too but I always find their bread super thick and hard to eat ~ so i’m glad mine turned out softer was super worried before!

    This is such a great idea, I think I could have fun eating it even without any toppings!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 12:26 am Reply

      I agree hehe :) It’s already quite tasty without any topping and without the ice-cream it wont turn soggy ;) xx

    Congrats Daisy on creating a great recipe. I was asked to create a recipe too but I just have so much on at the moment I couldn’t manage it. I love the look of this. It must be so tasty with the honey and butter toasted on to the bread. And the way you’ve finished it off with the ice cream looks sensational. I’m sure Bakers Delight will be very happy with this xx

    I was wondering if you could create a gluten free version of this one. Unfortunately, i have stopped consuming flour products due to traditional medicine restrictions. = =

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 11, 2013 at 4:25 pm Reply

      I haven’t tried it with gluten-free bread but I’m sure there are white loaf of bread made from Gluten-free flour and as long as it’s sturdy enough it should work :) I’ll see if I can try it out and will let you know hehe ~

    Daisy, are you kidding me with this recipe? My mouth almost dropped to the floor from the pure breadiness of it, oh the honey butter? Holy cow!!!!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet March 12, 2013 at 11:15 am Reply

      I hope I didn’t disappoint you with this recipe Julie :) Because I’m really not that creative and much of a recipe creator hehe ~ but the sound of doing the toast boast with a fruit and nut cape seed loaf sounds so good just remember lots of butter and honey when you toast it :P
