Fairy Bread seems to be a tradition at most kid’s parties in Australia. There’s nothing quite like it. It’s so crunchy and rainbowy and sugary and fatty and perfect for whipping perfectly angelic cherubs into a sugar fueled frenzy! There is nothing healthy about it whatsoever – and I’m guessing that’s why our Mums only made it a few times a year… although, if my sister and I found the left over sprinkle packet in the cupboard, we would always try to make it ourselves before Mum would notice us being very quiet and cooperative in the kitchen!
For me, there are a few rules.
1. Use the freshest whitest bread possible
2. Use round brightly coloured hundreds and thousands sprinkles – none of those long cylindrical sprinkles or chocoloate hail!
3. Use real butter, not margarine
4. Each slice must be cut into 4 little triangles, with the crusts still attached
Ok – now, is that a little OCD? Probably. Try it. You’ll Like it!
Butter a slice of bread all the way to the edges, Pour sprinkles onto a plate. Dip the bread into the sprinkles and shake off excess. Cut into 4 triangles. DEVOUR!
