2 slices (if you are using only the crusts, use 1 loaf worth)
3 ~ 5 tablespoons (to your liking)
Salted butter (or margarine)
15 ~ 30 g
Cut the bread into your desired shapes. I cut into 2 cm cubes this time. Even if you are using only the crusts, cut into your desired lengths.
Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake in the oven for 10 ~ 15 minutes at 230℃. Make sure they won't burn in the oven.
In the mean time, weigh the caramel sauce ingredients.
When the bread is golden brown as shown in the picture, it's ready. Leave in the oven, and make the caramel sauce.
Add all the ingredients for the caramel sauce into a frying-pan, and turn the heat to medium. Mix with a wooden spatula. When it starts to bubble, turn down the heat to low. When it becomes your desired consistency, add the bread.
Mix quickly. When the bread is coated with the caramel sauce, return to the baking sheet from earlier, and let cool. Done.
Story Behind this Recipe
It's delicious to eat the crusts from the sandwiches as is, but I wanted to make them caramel flavoured, which my kids love, so I created this recipe.
If you think there is not enough caramel sauce, you can add more sugar and butter for your desired amount. I used 3 tablespoons of sugar and 15 g of butter for my family, but this is for my kids so I recommend 6 tablespoons of sugar and 30 g of butter. If you use water instead of milk, the taste will be light. If you use nondairy creamer instead of milk, the taste will be rich.
