If you're someone who has toast for your breakfast, are you making sure that you are double-buttering?

Nigella Lawson has revealed during the latest episode of her television show 'Cook, Eat, Repeat' that doubl-buttering is the only way to butter your toast.

What is the two-stage buttering test?

Nigella explains that moment that her freshly baked bread comes out of the oven, she spreads it thick with butter so that the butter soaks down into it.

Once it has cooled, Nigella slices off a bit of bread and butters it again.

Lawson says a second coat will allow the butter to "stay in some golden patches on the surface."

How many times do you butter your toast? You can watch how Nigella does hers in the video above.
