Over the past couple of years some of our favourite recipes have come from TikTok. Who knew scrolling could be so wholesome?! And the latest food craze doing the rounds with TikTokers is custard toast... hear us out. Sure, it sounds a bit odd, but it's essentially a delicious and rustic pastry made out of the basic ingredients you probably already have in your own home.

The basic recipe involves an egg, a couple of spoonfuls of yoghurt and some honey mixed together to make the custard.

Using your fingers or the back of a spoon then indent the bread to make a small well and pour in the custard mix, before adding toppings like raspberries, blueberries or chocolate drops (or all three) and then bake in the oven or in an air dryer until golden.

Right now, people are currently pretty obsessed with it and all over TikTok people been trying all kinds of different variations of the recipe from using brioche instead of normal bread, flavoured yoghurt instead of plain or adding lemon zest on top of blueberries for a kick. It's just all very delicous.

If you're into it - who doesn't love dessert for breakfast? - but looking for even more recipe variations you're in luck. The culinary geniuses over at HelloFresh have come up with a load of custard toast creations to brighten up even the gloomiest of mornings.

First up, try a banoffee version, says Recipe Development Manager Mimi Morley. "Simply add some sliced banana to the top of your custard toast before you bake it in the oven, and then drizzle over some toffee sauce once cooked."

If you're feeling ambitious (procrastinating from work), apple crumble custard toast is perfect for you. "In a saucepan, place cubed apple and cover in a good coating of sugar and cinnamon, as well as 2 tbsp water. Stew until the apples begin to mush.

"To make the crumble, mix flour, sugar and butter in a bowl using your hands until you create a crumb-like texture. Place your cooked apples and crumb on top of the custard toast and bake for 15-20 minutes"

Well, we're off to make custard toast. Obviously.
