  • 3 to 4 slices day-old loaf bread crusts removed
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons raw wild honey
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds any color will do


  • Slice the bread into four equal pieces.
  • Toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan until lightly browned. Toss them often for even browning. Transfer to a plate and cool.
  • With the heat turned off, melt the butter in the still hot frying pan. When completely melted, pour in the honey and stir well. Note that you can use less butter and more honey or an equal amount of butter and honey. It's just that I wanted my toast more buttery than sweet so I used more butter than honey.
  • Place the bread in a single layer in the frying pan. Turn them over to coat the other side with the butter-honey mixture. Move them around gently so that they absorb all the liquid in the pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 300F.
  • Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or non-stick paper.
  • Using a spatula, lift each piece of bread and transfer to the lined baking sheet. Make sure that they are at least half an inch apart for better heat circulation.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds over each piece of bread.
  • Bake at 300F for eight to 10 minutes or until browned and crisp.
