Have you seen the vital Tik Tok Custard Toast? If you haven’t and you don’t have a Tik Tok account, then it will be my pleasure to introduce you to Custard Toast. What is Custard Toast? It is basically a sliced bread, pressed and filled with custard mixture made with combining plain Greek yogurt, egg and sweetener and top with whatever toppings you like. A 3 ingredients custard that uses yogurt instead of milk or cream, that alone is a good start for me, and it works!
I cannot enough of the Blueberry and Mango Custard Toast. It has a tangy creamy custard that is not too sweet, and a bread that is perfectly toasted you can hear the crunch in every bite.
Blogging my seem like an easy thing to do but in reality it takes a LOT of time to finish a single post. In my Take a Peek at the Behind The Scenes of Food Blogging, I shared with you my process when creating a post. Although it takes a lot of time, it gives me a lot of joy doing thing. Blogging keeps me sane 🙂 and help me balance my life between work and personal time. I love sharing recipes with you as well as my travel escapades. I had been busier lately with work and I started making my meals on the fly, you know whatever I have on hand. Something that I do not have to plan just like when creating a posts for the blog. I thought I would create a short post about this, not as elaborate as my full post but enough to give you idea on how you can make it at home. This will be easy and quick recipes that you can make in less than 30 minutes max or even 5 minutes less. We all need a short break from the kitchen, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop making delicious meals to nourish us.
Today’s Quick & Easy Recipe
Custard Toast, a sweet toast to add to our daily savory toast rotation. It’s good to try different variations from time to time. I love having both savory and sweet dish for breakfast, but between the two, I often have savory dish more than sweet dish for breakfast. There are times though that my sweet tooth craving starts and all I want for breakfast is something sweet, doesn’t sound that healthy I know, but that’s the reality of my day to day life. I swap sweet and savory breakfast so I do not get bored with it.
A sweet toast for a change
I’ve made quite a lot of savory toast and I thought I would share a sweet variation for a change. For those days when we crave for something sweet for breakfast, try this toast. I saw this Custard Toast in Tik Tok and I immediately knew that I want to make it. Few simple reasons, it is very easy to make, it is fun to make, very flexible with the toppings, and just because I really love anything with custard.
A different kind of custard
My idea of a custard is a mixture of egg, milk and sweetener, so this variation of custard that I used in this recipe is quite new to me. In fact, it was my first time trying it. I was hesitant and I doubted that it will work, but based on what I saw from people making it, it does seems to work and so I gave it a try. Guess what, it works and it tasted great!
The custard is a mixture of plain Greek yogurt, egg, sweetener and vanilla extract which is optional. I highly recommend that you use Greek yogurt as this type of yogurt is thicker which makes the custard mixture thick as well and sets beautifully as it bakes. In all the video I saw, people who made this used liquid sweetener like maple syrup or honey. I opted to use granulated sugar instead to keep the consistency thick. Adding a liquid sweetener will make the consistency thin and runny which produces a thin layer of custard. I only used 1 tablespoons, if you like it sweeter, add more sweetener.
Be creative with the toppings
When it comes to toppings, there really no right or wrong here. Use whatever works for you. I used Blueberry and Mango which is what I have on hand when I made this. I imagine you can also use jam to swirl on top, or melted chocolate for a decadent variation. It just came to me, you can even flavor your custard and make it chocolate or matcha by simply adding cocoa powder or matcha powder. Anyway, back to the toppings. For the Blueberry, I microwave the Blueberry for 1 minute to soften it and allow the juices to release. I feel like it looks better like that, almost like a compote or stewed Berries. You can also use it as is fresh or frozen, up to you. The other toppings I used was fresh Mango, I had it chopped into small pieces.
Sprinkling of sugar to finish it off
For a nice browning of the top, add a sprinkling of sugar before baking it. If you have demerara sugar, that would be better. I don’t have one on hand so I used granulated sugar instead.
Bake and wait
A lot of people make this using air fryer, but since I don’t have one, I used oven instead. It took me 25 minutes to get the custard set and the bread toasted which is way far from what other people recommended which is 10-15 minutes. Anyway, adjust the time to whatever works with your oven. Aim for a set custard, you will also notice that it will puff up. The edge and bottom of the bread should be toasted and nicely browned.
A dusting of icing sugar to make it look fancy
We feast with our eyes even before we eat the food, so why not make it even prettier. Dust icing sugar on top to make it look a bit fancy, almost like something you buy in cafe. Serve with fresh fruits on the side, or a doll up (or more) or whipped cream on top. It cannot get any prettier than that. A simple and humble bread, turned into a fancy looking breakfast like the one served in cafe. You deserve a lot on the back for making this. Enjoy!
- 2 slice Bread
- 2 tablespoon fresh Mango
- 2 tablespoon fresh or frozen Blueberry
- 3 tablespoon plain Greek Yogurt (do not sub for low fat or regular yogurt)
- 1 tablespoon granulated Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
- extra sugar for sprinkling
- icing sugar for dusting
- Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
- I a bowl, transfer the greek yogurt. Add the sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
- Using your fingers, press the center of the bread starting from the edge. The goal is to create a huge indent in the middle to hold the custard and filling.
- Divide the custard mixture between the two slice bread.
- Microwave the Blueberry for 1 minute, this will release the juice. You can also use it fresh. If using frozen, I recommend microwaving.
- Scatter the Blueberry on the bread, and Mango on the other bread. Sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until the custard is set and the edge of the bread is crunchy.
- Transfer in a serving plate. Serve as is, or cut into triangles and dust with icing sugar.
Serves 1 – 2
