Taiwanese Style Brick Toast

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Taiwanese
Servings: 4

Brick toast is a popular snack served at most Taiwanese Tapioca and Boba Tea Cafes. There are many ways to serve it and here I'm sharing my favorite variations.


  • 4 extra-thick slices of toast

Sweet Butter Cream

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Condensed Milk

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup condensed milk


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk powder
  • 1/2 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup butter (see note)


  1. Whichever butter spread you prefer, whisk all ingredients together until mixed and the butter is light and creamy. 

  2. Spread generously on 4 slices of thick toast. Slice toast into small squares with a sharp knife but don't cut all the way through. Place on wire rack in the toaster oven. Set to toast setting, medium. Watch toast while it is cooking to make sure it doesn't burn.
  3. Top with chocolate sauce or Nutella if desired.


For the custard version, you can also use condensed milk instead of butter.
