Custard toast

Makes 4 slices
10 minutes
15 minutes

This TikTok trend is deceptively simple, but surprisingly beautiful! The “custard” is made with just three ingredients: yoghurt, honey and egg – but you can get creative with the toppings. Depending on which direction you take it in, this could either be a quick breakfast or a decadent dessert.

  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 1 T honey
  • 4 slices honey-and-oat bread (or your choice of bread)
  • For the toppings:
  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon
  • Extra honey
  • Raspberries

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Whisk together the yoghurt, egg and honey.

2. Place the bread on a baking tray and press the middle flat using the back of a spoon. Top with spoonfuls of the custard, dot with the toppings and bake for 10–15 minutes until golden and crisp.
