I Tried The TikTok Viral Custard Yogurt Toast
A toast to this toast… (I’ll see myself out now.)
I love a good pastry. It’s one of my simple pleasures.
Doesn’t that just look so gourmet? I can’t tell you how fast I RAN to the grocery store to buy some ingredients. It basically seems like a healthier version of a Danish pastry, which I love, so I had to give the recipe a try. Here’s how it went:
Start by gathering your ingredients. The good news is, you probably already have a lot of them sitting in your fridge. You just need an egg, greek yogurt, maple syrup, bread, and the toppings of your choice.
But first things first — preheat your oven to 350 degrees. You can also use an air fryer which would probably be easier, TBH.
Then, crack the egg in a mixing bowl.
Add in half a 5.3 oz container of plain greek yogurt and a tablespoon of maple syrup. You could also add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract if you have it.
Look at that color! It’s looking like custard already. You should end up with a smooth, liquidy mixture. The consistency should be a little runny.
It’s time to flatten the bread. I used sourdough, which honestly, was NOT ideal because there were so many holes, which let the custard seep through. It would probably be best to use a thick, dense bread like a Brioche.
To flatten, I pressed down with a fork repeatedly in opposite directions. Eventually, there should be a little trench you can pour the custard in.
Then, it’s toast assembly time! Pour the custard on the bread, and then add your toppings. I decided to do blueberry and raspberry toasts, and even sprinkled a little cinnamon on top.
Into the oven it goes! The recipe in the TikTok above recommended baking at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes, but I honestly ended up leaving it in there for about 15. Might just be my janky oven though.
Voila! They are done. Not the ~prettiest~ per se, but hey, I think they look pretty darn good.
For the final step, I sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. ~Proud chef moment~
Okay, now for the moment of truth: let’s taste it.
Ummm. What. This is actually great. My reaction here: (lol)
It’s the perfect amount of sweet — sometimes I feel overwhelmed from how rich pastries are, but this did not taste that way. And even though the sourdough bread was not ideal, baking it and adding the custard gave it a really nice, doughy texture. The fruits became really soft in the oven, and definitely gave the whole thing a natural sweetness. Every part of this toast truly complemented each other.
Like, I knew this was going to be good, but did not expect it to be THAT good. I will definitely be making this again, especially because it’s SO EASY! From prep to finish, it probably took me less than 30 minutes. I think it would be really fun to experiment with new toppings, too. If you’re into fruity pastries, this recipe was made for you.
