I posted a photo of my Sunday ritual on Instagram (look up there, that’s it); people went insane for my electric blue morning treat. What is it? How do you make it? Where did it come from? I am here to reveal all.
Fairy Bread is nothing new; a popular treat from the mysterious lands of Australia, it’s the red carpet star of Tumblr and Instagram alike. Typically it is made with un-toasted white bread, margarine (ew), and those hard, circular sprinkles that long to crack tooth enamel. I loved the idea of it and sweets sit better on my stomach in the harsh light of morning. The path had been laid before my feet, I only had to take a few tentative steps to be in fairyland. I jumped in headfirst and added a flourish.
I hate margarine, so that was the first thing to go. Icing. Yes. Blue? Even better! The sprinkles obviously had to stay, but I opted for the softer variety. Bonus points for fun shapes. Then came the bread. Gummy, un-toasted white bread. Am I an heathen? No, I am not. To up the decadence factor I went with toasted brioche slices, essentially making this a slap-and-dash cake.
Pair with orange juice (or mimosa), settle in with a whimsical book, and experience the wonder of Fairy Raptor Bread.
