Fast, easy, creamy and crunchy – yoghurt toast is a simple breakfast with impressive appeal. It packs all the goodness of cheesecake, custard, and French toast into one piece of bread, making it feel like you've got a slightly sweet dessert and healthy breakfast rolled into one.
What is yogurt toast?
Yogurt Toast or Custard Yogurt Toast is TikTok's hugely popular viral breakfast. TikTok is known for coming up with fun and whimsical ways to make new dishes, often from staples you have right in the kitchen, and yogurt toast is no exception.
The recipe is simple: Take an egg, Greek yoghurt, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix it all together into a “custard cream”. The cream is then poured into the hollowed-out wells of two slices of bread. Top with berries or chocolate chips (to be honest, the possibilities are endless) and air fry or bake. Ready in under 15 minutes, this recipe is an easy and no-fuss breakfast.
One of the original videos of this technique by _moody_day compares it to a quick and easy cheesecake, and we have to agree. The flavor of the Greek yogurt gives it a flavor profile similar to that of the cream cheese in the cheesecake. But this recipe is much simpler and does not require a water bath. The filling is also not as eggy as a custard can be. Even if you're not in the mood for eggs, this recipe is a hit.
It's a great recipe for kids as there's plenty of scope for variation in toppings and little cooking involved.
“This dish is super easy to make. The taste is reminiscent of a cheese pastry. The interplay of the crunchiness of the bread and the creaminess of the vanilla pudding gives it a special touch. I love the versatility of this recipe; You can use any fat yogurt and berry, you can even add chocolate chips or experiment with seasonal produce.” —Jacqueline Tris
1 big egg
3 tablespoon greek yogurt (any variety or percentage of fat will work)
2 to 3 teaspoon Sweetener, such as maple syrup, honey or agave
1 syringes pure vanilla extract
2 slices good quality sandwich bread, preferably brioche or challah
1/4 Cup Berry by choice
2 tablespoon chocolate chips, Optional
Powdered sugar, Optional
Gather the ingredients.
Whisk together the egg, yogurt, sweetener, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. you want to Really Mix these ingredients well with a fork or small whisk. Keep stirring until the mixture is completely smooth and looks shiny. Make sure there are no lumps.
Take a slice of bread and press down the middle. Leave an edge of the crust but press down on most of the soft part of the bread, creating a hollow.
Pour Pour half of the yogurt mixture onto the bread and spread evenly. The amount will vary depending on the size, thickness, and type of bread used.
Sprinkle half of the berries or chocolate chips on top. Get creative and have fun with a design of your choice. Repeat the process with the second slice of bread.
Air fry (one slice on each of the two tiers) at 350F for 7 minutes (if your air fryer has a standard single-layer fryer, air fry one slice at a time for 7 minutes).
Check the bread as it bakes. You want a glossy sheen and caramelized edges on the yoghurt filling and golden toasted bread. Alternatively, you can bake both slices in a preheated oven at 180°C for 12 to 15 minutes.
Let the toast cool for a minute or two, then dust with powdered sugar if needed. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
- Preheating the air fryer didn't affect the cooking time or the cooking process much. Preheat or don't preheat and you'll get very similar results.
- If you want a thicker consistency of the cream, use a thinner layer of filling. If the layer is too thick, the bread will brown before the cream is cooked.
- We went with 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, but if you like it sweeter (or less sweet), add more or less.
- Vanilla extract is the perfect complement to the flavor of the custard, but try other sweet spices like cinnamon or nutmeg.
- Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries make great toppings. If using strawberries, just make sure to slice them thinly before adding them to the custard.
- Mini chocolate chips are a sweet twist on regular chocolate chips. Milky, semi-sweet or dark, it's up to you.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Serve with more fruit if you like.
What type of bread should I use for yoghurt toast?
The short answer is brioche or challah, but you can use any type of bread you like. Just avoid using breads with large holes, such as B. Sourdough. The custard mixture will run through the holes and leave a mess in your air fryer. We like the rich, eggy quality that brioche pairs well with creamy custard.
