Custard Toast (dairy & gluten free)

Dairy-free custard toast 2 ways: Chocolate Strawberry, and Lemon Raspberry. My version of the viral TikTok trend!
Servings 3
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins


  • 3 slices gluten free bread I used Udi's
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp dairy free greek style yogurt I used Kite Hill
  • 1 tbsp honey maple syrup works, too

For Lemon Raspberry Toast

  • 1 tsp lemon zest + more for garnish
  • drizzle of honey for garnish
  • 1/4 cup raspberries halved

For Strawberry Chocolate Toast


  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F. (see notes below for oven instructions)
  • Using a fork or your fingers, gently press down in the middle of your bread slices. You want to create a well in the center of your bread for your custard to rest in. (see the video for a demonstration)
  • Place your bread on to the tray for your air fryer.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the egg, yogurt, and honey.
  • If you're making the chocolate strawberry toast, gently spoon some custard over your slice of bread until the custard fills the center of the bread but isn't running over the sides.
  • Add the lemon zest to the bowl of remaining custard and whisk to combine.
  • Top your remaining bread slices with the lemon custard.
  • Air fry your bread for about 5 minutes until the center is set. Keep an eye on it to be sure the top doesn't brown too much or burn.
  • Top your lemon custard with fresh raspberries, and the plain custard with strawberries.
  • Drizzle the raspberry toast with a bit more honey and a pinch of lemon zest.
  • Top the strawberry toast with a drizzle of hazelnut spread. If the spread isn't soft enough to drizzle you can melt it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.


To make this in the oven, bake for about 10 minutes at 350°F. Check it frequently to avoid browning the top too much.
To make it vegan, replace the egg with 3 tablespoons of  Just Egg.
