This is a remake of the yogurt custard toast recipe. Which is one of the most popular recipes on the Cute Cuisine blog. The idea for making a cream cheese custard toast came from a youtube comment under my yogurt custard toast recipe video. Someone asked me if the custard toast tastes like cheesecake or something and this inspired me to try the custard toast with cream cheese.
Honestly, I love both versions. The two are slightly different in taste and texture. The yogurt custard toast is a bit softer than the cream cheese toast.
Here you can find the yogurt custard toast recipe.
You can make these cream cheese custard toasts with brioche bread or regular white bread, sourdough, or whole-wheat bread.
Happy baking/cooking! Jó étvágyat!
Cream Cheese Toast Ingredients
Easy breakfast ideas, under 5 main ingredients…Count me in! This amount makes about 4 custard toasts.
- 1 egg
- 150 g cream cheese (about 2/3 measuring cup maybe a bit more, 5.3oz)
- 4-6 slices of brioche or bread
- 1 tbsp. milk (optional)
- vanilla bean powder or vanilla extract
- frozen or fresh berries or jam or chocolate chips for topping
- brown sugar for topping
- agave syrup or honey or maple syrup to drizzle
How to make Yogurt Custard Toast | Instructions
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (360 degrees Fahrenheit) or air-fryer on a toasting setting.
- Take four pieces of bread, lay them on a lined baking tray, and use the back of a fork or spoon to press the middle of the bread flat (this will create a hollow to hold the cream cheese mix).
- Whisk together the cream cheese with the egg, 1 tbsp. milk, and vanilla. If you use fresh fruit: wash them and slice them up.
- Spoon the cream cheese-egg mix into the bread hollows and top with fruit or topping of your choice. And sprinkle it with some brown sugar. Place the whole lot into the oven for 12-15 minutes OR air fryer and grill for 5 minutes or until the filling is set and the top browning. Serve with a drizzle of honey, agave syrup, or maple syrup and with a dash of cinnamon.

Substitutions & Notes
Egg: Try using 1 tsp. corn starch.
Cream cheese: Plant-based cream cheese or yogurt.
Brioche: You can use toast bread or sourdough, milk bread…whatever you have access to.
Fruit: Use fresh fruits (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries), or other frozen fruits of your choice. Sprinkles, chocolate chips…whatever you like.
Store & Reheat
If you make them ahead, the toasts remain fresh in the fridge for up to 1-2 days.
180 degrees Celsius (360 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Lay out the slices of toast in one layer with at least a ½ inch in between slices.
Bake for 2-3 minutes.
Heat a skillet or stove-top griddle on medium heat and coat it with a bit of cooking spray to grease the pan.
Place your pieces of custard toast on the pan, add a tablespoon of water, and put a lid on top.
Let it warm up for 2-3 minutes.
If your toasts are a little too soggy, put the pan at a bit higher temperature, add in some butter, and re-crisp the outsides. (For 1-2 minutes, without lid.)
Microwave the toasts for about 30 seconds. This way the reheated toasts won’t be crispy but they will still taste delicious, and this is the quickest way to reheat them.
