Matcha Custard Toast Recipe [Viral TikTok Recipe]

I absolutely had to make that viral TikTok custard toast, because I love custard and carbs – and I love a quick recipe. And of course I had to add matcha to make it a matcha custard toast... because I have an unhealthy obsession with matcha.

Unlike last week, when I waited for about a year to make a viral TikTok recipe, this time I'm only a couple of months out (I think). It ticks all the boxes for me: quick, easy, and a way to eat dessert for breakfast.

The bread I used here is shokupan (Japanese milk bread), and it was thickly sliced so I could fit more custard in there. You can also use brioche, or plain old white sandwich bread.

For the custard, the thicker the yoghurt you use, the better. Which is why I chose Greek yoghurt. I used 0% fat because I happened to have it in my fridge, but you could use full-fat Greek yoghurt too.

My sweetener of choice was regular caster sugar. I've seen some people use maple syrup or honey and claim it's healthier, but those are a bit of a red herring to be honest – you're still eating sugar, although maple syrup and honey have a tiny bit more nutrients in them than processed white sugar. So 'healthy' is a bit of a misnomer in this case. Sugar works just as well, and everything in moderation, right?

The custard will be a bit tangier with zero fat yoghurt and richer with full fat, it's totally up to you which you prefer.

You can also watch me make this on my YouTube channel:

Ready? Let's go.


1 egg
3 tbsp Greek yoghurt
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tsp matcha, sifted
1 tbsp butter, melted (optional)
2 thick slices of bread
A handful of berries (e.g. blueberries, halved strawberries and raspberries work well)


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with foil.

2. To make the custard, beat the egg in a bowl, and stir in the yoghurt, sugar and matcha until well combined.

3. Brush the melted butter around the edges of the slices of bread on the top surface, and use a dessert or soup spoon to squash down the centres so you have two shallow 'bread bowls'.

3. Evenly divide the matcha yoghurt custard between each slice, filling up the centres, and dot with your chosen berries.

4. Bake for 12–15 minutes, until the custard is set and jiggles very slightly when you shake the tray a little.

5. Leave to cool for five minutes before serving warm. Feel free to add an extra drizzle of honey or maple syrup if you like.

Enjoy, and have fun.
