Challah Tahini Custard Toast Recipe

I made the viral custard toast Jewish by using leftover Shabbat challah and this secret ingredient

I made the viral custard toast Jewish by using leftover Shabbat challah (I’ve used a cinnamon swirl loaf!) and added tahini to my custard mixture for a nutty taste that you just can’t beat. Simpler than French toast, this is the perfect weekend brunch recipe you’ve been searching for.

Did you know that the stages of bread production - planting, harvesting, winnowing, threshing, etc - represent the painstaking process of acquiring wisdom? It takes a long time to cultivate (and ultimately enjoy) a new idea. Get more Jewish food thoughts here.

Serves 1


  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 3-4 slices challah
  • Desired toppings: berries, chocolate chips, nuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 204°C/400°F. Line a tray with baking paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the egg, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and tahini until smooth.
  3. Using the back of a spoon, press the center of the challah to create a well.
  4. Spoon 2-3 tbsp of the custard mixture into the well. Add any toppings, if desired.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until set.
  6. Enjoy!
