Vegan French Toast

I've never tried Vegan French Toast before and I was pleasantly surprise with this recipe.

I created the recipe based on the recipes I saw on vegancooking, the french toast recipe my dad and I used to make, and what I had at home.

Here's the recipe I used:
stale bread (about 6 pieces)
1/2 cup plain soy yogurt
1/2 cup soymilk
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg and cloves
several tablespoons canola or vegetable oil

Combine soy milk and soy yogurt.
Stir in cornstarch and stir until dissolved.
Stir in flour.
Add spices and vanilla, mix well.

Heat skillet over med/hi heat, coat with a thin layer of oil.

Soak bread in the mixture and transfer to hot skillet, cook until golden brown on each side.

I've never heard of these things before tonight, but my friend mentioned them to me, showed a picture, and gave a recipe - they look really good!

I'm not totally sure how to go about veganizing some of it, though.

The recipe is from here but I'll add it under the cut too...

The third layer looks easy enough (just have to find vegan semisweet chocolate squares)...but custard powder? Is there any way to get that vegan?

Also, the egg in the first layer...when I bake I put in cornstarch and a little extra liquid, but it seems like it wouldn't work on this recipe!
