Honey Toast with Sesame Cream Cheese Paste

There's this small jar of sesame paste that's been sitting in my fridge for a while. I've used it for sesame pudding, sesame panna cotta, and even savory Asian style noodles, but I felt like I was running out of new ideas. One day, I saw a toast made by a local cafe that was served with sesame cream paste. That will do! Inspiration kicked in, so here's my new found way for that jar of sesame paste.

Honey toast with sesame cream cheese paste -

Ingredients (for two)?

  • 2 slices honey flavored thick toast (Danish toast works great too)
  • 40 grams cream cheese
  • 20 grams unsweetened sesame paste
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 semi-ripe banana


Let the cream cheese rest in room temperature till softened and easier to press as a spread.

Mix 40 grams of cream cheese with 20 grams of unsweetened sesame paste. The cream cheese to sesame paste ratio is about 2:1, plus or minus based on personal preference.

Use a non-stick pan and turn to medium heat. Heat up the thick toast till slightly colored on both sides. No need to add any oil here, just plain hot surface would work.

Spread the cream cheese sesame paste mixture onto one side of the toast. 

Slice banana and arrange on the paste. I used 9 slices per toast, that way I can ensure I get one piece of banana every bite. Drizzle some maple syrup, about 1 tablespoon per slice.

A change of scene with sesame paste here. With added cream cheese, it gets to spread much easier onto a toast. This is a rather simple recipe, but flavors are up there, a tiny bitter note from the sesame, slight sourness from the cream cheese, honey aroma from the toast (buttery touch if using Danish toast), and maple syrup to sweet things up.
