Fairy Bread

Fairy Bread Recipe with step by step pictures- Fairy Bread is a snack from Australia and New Zealand. It is basically a slice of bread, coated with butter and topped with sprinkles and cut into triangles. Although a very simple snack, it is a very popular one!  It is on the menu of the kids’ parties. Traditionally margarine is used to make fairy bread. Further colorful sprinklers are used. I have, however, used butter and colored sugar. This takes me back to my childhood memories. I have always loved the combination of white bread, homemade white butter, and granulated white sugar. However, in this recipe, I have used salted butter as it cuts the sweetness of sugar wonderfully. Further homemade colored castor sugar was used which had a wonderful bite and a great taste. You can be creative with fairy bread and make it as per you or your kids’ liking.

Ingredients required:

Bread: White bread works the best for making fairy bread. Make sure to use fresh bread. You may or may not cut the sides of the slices.

Butter: Generally margarine is used to make fairy bread. However, I have used salted butter for the recipe. It is very important that the butter is at room temperature. If should have a spreadable consistency. If you have the butter cold, just pop it in the microwave. Reduce the power of microwaves to 50. Then microwave it for 10 seconds, mix, and repeat till you have the desired consistency.

Sprinklers: Colorful sprinklers, a lot of these, are used to make fairy bread. However, I used colored caster sugar. It is very easy to make the same. Learn here to make colored sugar at home.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
