The perfect approach, Lawson suggests, is not as clear as you might think: Lawson teaches the audience to spread the butter on a hot oven as soon as it leaves the oven, before letting it settle, apply a second layer of butter, and then finish with a pinch of salt.
Lawson explained that first aid makes the toast a “gorgeous bite,” Lawson explained. “Step Two Now – Ready?” She asked, encouraging the audience for what was to come. “I need a few more ounces of butter, and it’ll be on a thin gold plate on the floor.”

BBC radio host Zoe Ball, who dedicated part of her Wednesday morning show “What did you start @Nigella_Lawson,” so that listeners can debate the issue.
Lawson has been a staple of British television for decades, having hosted her first cooking show in 1999.
The star-studded recipes and makeup have also earned her international acclaim, winning the “God of the Village” beauty pageant from music fans.
