Yogurt toast is sometimes called cream toast, which gives an idea of how the simple mixture of yogurt, egg, and syrup baked on a piece of toast beautifully mimics the texture and flavor of French toast or even a cheese Danish. It takes only minutes to prepare, making it an option even for busy mornings. A thick Greek-style yogurt is ideal for getting the creamy texture you want in the custard. Use a flavored yogurt if you like, but taste it before adding the maple syrup and reduce the amount used if necessary so it's not too sweet. If you don't have brioche, you can use challah or any other soft bread; save the sturdy wholemeal for another use. Feel free to play with toppings; raspberries, strawberries, cranberries and other berries work well here, slice them if they are larger. You can also use thinly sliced bananas, peaches, pears or figs and top your yogurt toast with chips, peanut butter or hazelnut spread. If you don't have a deep fryer, you can make these toasts in the oven or toaster oven; bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, watching the toasts during the last few minutes of cooking to prevent them from getting too browned or burned on the edges.
