Plural:   aftertoastings

The subsequent frying or baking to make something crispy after performing previous procedures;  end-toasting;  final browning or crispening when the prepared food is done enough for eating but not yet entirely perfect.


The first-baked surface can sometimes become partially softened by the escaping hot vapours, but this is quickly corrected by re-flipping it over.  This additive aftertoasting is not counterproductive:  The second surface does not have the opportunity to dampen in the few minutes sufficient to re-crisp up the first surface(Source: J∙ Okram - Bartonian Potato Pancakes  ●  Cooking Recipe.)
