How to make: Thai sweet toast with black sesame seeds

Called kanoom-pang-naneuy, these delectable toasted slices of bread are spread with butter icing and sprinkled with black sesame seeds. According to Appon’s Thai Food Recipes, they are a popular street food in Thailand. Sadly, I never noticed them when I was in Thailand — I was too focused on the noodles, the fish, the rice… But that’s okay because these wonderful sweet toasts are easy enough to make at home.

Recipe: Thai sweet toast with black sesame seeds


  • about 80 g. of butter, softened to room temperature
  • 50 g. of confectioner’s (powdered) sugar
  • a generous pinch of salt
  • about 1 tsp. of black sesame seeds (see notes below)
  • 6 to 8 slices of bread (you may cut off the crusts)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Thai sweet toast with black sesame seeds

    A great alternative to the usual French toast! I will surely try this weekend when the kids are back home from the dorm.

    Hi Miss Connie,
    For how much do you buy the black sesame seeds?
    I have been scouting for them in groceries and asian stores to no avail. I badly need them for my baked goodies. :)
