Asian honey and butter bread recipe – a simple dessert

This honey and butter bread is quite commonly found in Korean and some other Asian cafes, and doesn’t require any actual bread baking (although it does require a few minutes in the oven). The core ingredients are – yes – honey and butter. The ideal bread to use is milk bread, but you can make it with ordinary sliced bread as well. I’m using half brown and white bread here for an easy and healthier option.

The prep work only takes about 2 minutes, and then it’s a quick 10 minutes in the oven before it’s ready to serve as a dessert or a sweet pick-me-up.


2-3 thick slices of bread
2 tbsps of clear honey
A few slices of unsalted butter
Dash of cinamon
Whipped cream
Chocolate sauce


Step 1: stack the bread together and make 2 horizontal and 2 vertical cuts. Make sure that the crust remains in tact.


Step 2: smear and drizzle the honey into the cuts of the top slice. Don’t worry about making it flow down to the bottom slices at this stage, as it will naturally run down when heated in the oven.


Step 3: warm the butter and cover the top of the bread stack with this so that the butter sits over the honey.


Step 4: place in the oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes (depending on whether you used 2 or 3 slices of bread).

Step 5: remove once brown/the surface feels toasted. Dust with cinnamon.

Step 6: spray with whipped cream and top off with some chocolate sauce. It’s now ready to eat!


The whipped cream will melt quickly under the heat, so you have to be quick and eat it while it’s fresh out of the oven. If you’ve tried this then did it give you a much-needed burst of energy?
