Why this recipe is great

This tiktok recipe first went viral around a month ago and I think that could be for a number of reasons. Firstly, combining egg, yogurt and maple syrup and then baking for 5 minutes = custard? I had no clue. Secondly, custard on toast? Sounds strange, but it’s so so good. 

I love how this is a sweet breakfast, whilst still being moderately healthy. It feels like you’re having dessert for breakfast. The custard yogurt toast also uses minimal ingredients. 

I think my addition of chocolate swirls adds a fun artsy element to it, where you can practice your decorating skills. A perfect brunch recipe or mid-week recipe as you can whip it up super quickly.

Ingredients

Thick white bread

Any thick bread would work here as you need to have enough depth to indent the bread slightly. I think wholemeal/sourdough might detract from the custard flavours,  but you could definitely try that. For an extra sweet custard toast, you could use brioche. 

Egg & Yogurt 

The basis of the custard 

Maple Syrup 

Adds a rich sweetness. You can use honey here to make it more budget friendly, but I do love the unique flavour of maple syrup! 

Milk Chocolate 

Use your favourite chocolate here to melt and swirl into your custard toast.

  • Strawberries 
  • Blackberries 
  • Chocolate chips
  • Sugar-coated/candied nuts

How to make this recipe

PREHEAT OVEN TO 180°C

Combine the yogurt, egg and honey in a mixing bowl until you have a smooth consistency.

Add the 3 slices of bread to a baking tray and then using a spoon or your hand push down/indent the centre, leaving an edge of 1cm around the crust.

Then add the chocolate squares to a bowl.  Rest the bowl in a metal sieve over the hot water, while the chocolate starts to melt.

Now pour the custard mix onto the 3 slices of toast, until level with the crust and then swirl the melted chocolate over the custard by adding tiny drops and then dragging a thin object (I used a chopstick) through the drops to create a swirl.

Pop in the oven for around 8 minutes, or until crispy and golden. Enjoy!

FAQ

Can I make this ahead of time?

I would prepare and enjoy this when served immediately out of the oven. 

Can I freeze this?

I wouldn’t freeze this recipe, as I think the bread would lose it’s crispiness when reheating in the oven and  the custard/chocolate would freeze weirdly. Luckily it’s so easy to make that you’ll have no desire to batch make this recipe and freeze!
