Beautiful Food: Raisin Toast - A Simple Rainy Day Treat

I love raisin toast.

Slightly sweet, burst of fruity gems, buttery taste bud enjoyment.

It has been raining the last couple of days and it feels cold and gloomy. The wind is blowing, it is wet everywhere, and there is a chill in the air.  This weather means one thing: It's time for a spot of tea and a little warm treat.
With no home baking in the pantry (oops - been to busy) I opt for an easy delicious treat = raisin toast.

It's warm, I smother it in fresh cold butter (the butter has to be cold) and I pair it with a cup of tea of choice.
It is delicious, yum, hits the rainy day blues spot and brings a small, dreamy ahhhhhhh delightful and satisfied smile.
It's such a simple, easy treat but it is perfect. I always keep a loaf in the freezer read for such a day as today when I need a warm treat and could not be bothered baking .

Raisin toast is beautiful.
