250 gm. Butter
50 gm. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg - beaten
360 gm. Plain flour - sifted

Pandan egg custard:

100 ml. Hot water
80 gm. sugar
50 gm. pandan juice
50 gm. fresh milk
3 eggs
a drop of green colouring (optional)

Method:

(1) Pastry tart shell: Cream butter with sugar until creamy. Add in beaten egg gradually and mix till well combined. Add in sifted flour and mix into a pliable dough. Wrap the dough and chill for 20 mins. Press into tart mould and leave in the fridge to chill while preparing the egg custard.
(2) Mix hot water with sugar till sugar dissolves. Add in the rest of the ingredients and sieve it twice.
(3) Pour egg custard until almost to the rim (80% full), taking care not to let it overflow to the egde. Note: It's difficult to unmould when the egg liquid flows to the side.
(4) Bake at 160C for about 30 mins. or until cooked. Remove the pandan egg tarts and leave to cool on a wire rack.

hi keysia,

no pandan paste. I used fresh pandan leaves to squeeze out the juice.

Hi Aunty,

Happy New Year to you! Just came back fm leave and saw your wonderful bakes. How many tarts did you churn out from the recipe? I'm so eager to try baking it. Thanks. / Jenny

Hi Aunty,

I just finished baking the pandan egg tarts. This is my first time making egg tart. I am not satisfied with the result although the egg custard taste ok. I have some queries:

1. I used the ready made puff pastry sold in supermarket. How thin should I roll it? Will I need to bake them first before pouring the custard? If I use your dough recipe, how thin should it be? What's the difference using puff pastry and normal dough pastry?

2. My egg custard rose so high that they looked like they were going to pop. Is this normal? Is it due to the temperature too high? My oven has only fan bake function so at what temperature should I use?

3. Even though I filled my custard 80% full, they still spilled out and formed the brown sticky thingee round the pastry. Why?

4. When I took them out, the custard shrunk and the top and inside were not smooth like your pic. May I know the reason? Is it because I used the whisk to mix the custard causing air inside?

5. When you bake tarts, do you put at the bottom or middle of the oven?

Sorry for so many questions. I hope to improve my skill with your guidance. Thank you in advance.

Regards

Hi anonymous,

Firstly if you use puff pastry, then it's portuguese egg tarts. You have to roll till very thin otherwise they will puff up during baking causing the egg custard to spill over leaving nothing left in the puff pastry.

For this pandan egg tart, I don't use puff pastry. I use the normall sugar paste.
For tarts, if the pastry is unbaked, you can bake at the lowest shelf so that the pastry gets cooked.

Hi Yochana,

May I check do I pre baked the tart shell first like I did for your strawberry tart?

Thanks in advance!

yochana said...

Hi Amy,

for egg tarts, no need to prebake tart shell. Just pour filling into unabaked tart shell then bake.

Hey, just tried your recipe, it's really nice, but i have a problem with retaining the egg custard inside the shell.
When I put the tarts in to bake, the egg custard puffs up a lot. But when i take it out of the oven, it starts to deflate, and the amount of custard that i put in the tarts come out less after it deflates. It leaks out through the pastry. Is there anyway i can prevent that from happening?
