Nigella Lawson’s ‘two-stage’ method for buttering bread

STAGE ONE 

  • Spread unsalted butter on the toast as soon as it comes out of the toaster so it can melt into the bread and give it a ‘crumpety bite’
  • Leave the slice to cool slightly before beginning ‘stage two’ 

STAGE TWO 

  • Spread a generous second layer of unsalted butter and allow it to pool in ‘golden patches’ on the bread
  • Sprinkle sea salt on top of your buttery bread

Nigella demonstrated how to butter toast in the introduction to her recipe for an ‘old-fashioned sandwich loaf’. 

Sitting in the garden with her own slice of buttered toast, Nigella explained: ‘I favour the two-stage buttering approach and so far, only stage one has taken place. 

‘That is to say, the moment this came out of the toaster and was lovely and hot, I spread it with butter, so the butter has melted down into it and it’ll give it a fabulous, crumpety bite.’

Picking up her knife and spreading more butter, she continued: ‘Stage two now, ready for it, I need a little more butter and it will stay in some golden patches on the surface.

‘It is unsalted butter, which I always prefer to use, but what I need to do is sprinkle some seasalt flakes over. This is the platonic ideal of toast.’ 

Viewers were quick t comment on the technique, with one tweeting: ‘I’m sorry @Nigella_Lawson but you’ve lost the plot mate! Teaching us to how butter toast?’ 

Another posted: ‘Least Nigella gives me nice and easy stuff to aspire to… last week fish fingers… this week double buttered toast #eatcookrepeat.’

A third wrote: ‘I’m really glad that @BBCTwo had #Nigella to tell us how to butter toast. Hopefully next week, we’ll find out how to make an @PotNoodle.’

Others jokingly praised Nigella for giving toast 'the attention it deserves'
