Nigella Lawson left fans baffled after sharing her "two-stage" hack for making the perfect slice of toast.

The 60-year-old chef returned to our screens with her new series, Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat, on BBC Two, showcasing innovative recipes including lamb shanks, fish finger bhorta and banana skin and cauliflour curry, as well as sharing her favourite kitchen hacks.

But it was her last recipe on how to make toast, which really surprised viewers, reports Daily Star.

In the clip, the food lover shows her piece of toast which already had butter melted into it.

"I favour the two-stage buttering approach, and so far, only stage one has taken place," she says.

"The minute this came out of the toaster, it's still lovely and hot, I spread it with butter so that the butter has melted down into it."

Nigella says that should give the bread a "crumpetty bite", but it is not finished yet.

"Stage two now, ready for it," the cook says, taking another slab of butter.

"I need a little more butter and it will stay in some golden patches on the surface.

Would you try this?

"It's unsalted butter, which I prefer to use. But what I need to do is sprinkle some sea salt flakes over.

"This is the platonic ideal of toast."

But viewers who weren't convinced that Nigella's hack was revolutionary took to Twitter to talk about it.

One said: "Nigella shows the nation how to butter toast… 5 minutes I will never get back."

A second user joked: "Shook to the core that #Nigella invented buttered toast. Mr.Warburton is SHAKING!"

"Sea salt on toast," one exclaimed. "A new Nigella Lawson recipe. 2020 just keeps getting weirder."

"Double buttering plus sea salt flakes," a second commented. "Heart attack on a plate right there."

Whereas others were intrigued to try it.

"Bloody amazing salt on toast! Why have I never heard of this before! Thank you Nigella" said one.

And another called the recipe a "genuine improvement to my breakfast experience there."
