Smoky Habanero Honey Toast with “Campfire Meringue” and Citrus Curd

  • Difficulty Moderate
  • Time 2 hours 30 minutes

The iconic Japanese Shibuya Honey toast dessert meets the s’more in downtown Tokyo. Crispy, buttery toast is offset by smoky marshmallow meringue and punchy citrus fruit, kissed by the heat of the Habanero chili. 

Smoky Habanero Honey Toast
(Yields ½ loaf Honey Toast [US])



  1. Preheat oven to 355°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir melted butter and honey together; mix in Honey Habanero spice blend.
  3. Remove ends of the bread loaf to expose sponge inside; split loaf in half, width-wise.
  4. Remove inner “core” of the bread loaf, leaving a 1/4” border of crust intact.
  5. Slice bread “cores” into cubes; move to prepared pan to glaze.
  6. Brush or spoon glaze to thoroughly coat the bread crust (including interior), as well as the bread core cubes.
  7. Bake until golden and honey begins to caramelize, about 10 minutes.

  • ½ stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter 


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients (except for butter) and whisk over medium heat to combine.
  2. Continue to whisk and cook, until the curd begins to foam and thicken to a creamy consistency; remove from heat and add butter.
