Egg Tarts













Ingredients for pastry crust:

100 gm. Unsalted Butter
40 gm. icing sugar
a pinch of salt
1 egg
20 gm. milk powder
220 gm. Plain Flour
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract

Egg Custard:

2 eggs.
45 gm. fine sugar
a pinch of salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
80 gm. fresh milk
40 gm. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla essence

Method:

(1) In a food processor, mix all the ingredients for pastry crust together except egg. Pulse a couple of times to mix till crumbly.
(2) Add in egg and mix till it becomes a pliable dough. Do not overmix otherwise pastry will create gluten and becomes tough.
(3) Chill pastry for 20 mins. before pressing into tart mould.
(4) Press pastry into tart moulds and cut off excess dough at the rim. Leave aside while prepare for egg custard.
(5) Mix all the ingredients for egg custard together then sieve it.
(6) Pour into prepared tarts and bake at 175C for about 20 mins. If your oven has individual control of the upper and lower heat, please have a higher temperature for lower control so that the pastry tart will turn golden brown. If you do not have this mode, please place the tarts at the bottom shelf of the oven.

Hi Aunty,
It's been quite a while since I last made egg tarts. This recipe looks different from the previous one with the addition of milk powder. Which one tastes better?

yochana said...

Hi delia,

all egg tarts taste almost the same.

Dear Aunty
Thanks so much for the recipe. I've been looking around for an easy to do egg tart recipe. A lady demonstrated how to make this when she sold me some Italian pots. I didn't write down but now I can try your recipe.

Your bakes are fabulous. It looks as tho u have bakery that u can bake so many different types of cakes and eat them too. Yummy!

Whenever I make egg tarts using the tart moulds, I find them difficult to unmould even when I greased them. Can advise on how to take them out from the moulds without breaking them up??

tq

yochana said...

hi tq,

if you find difficulty in unmoulding the tarts , it's a sign that your dough is too soft. Add in a little more flour to make into a pliable dough. the dough must not be too sticky.

Hi Aunty,
I tried making the egg tarts. The texture of the crust seems to be rather crunchy, like biscuit. Is there any way i can make it less crunchy? thanks!

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Add a little more egg to your pastry.

Hi yochana,

where u bought ur tart mould from ? wanted to make some tarts this weekends.
btw for fresh milk, which brand is good ? thanks

rgds,

yochana said...

Hi Jessica,

I bought the tart moulds from Phoon Huat. As for fresh milk, I use any milk that is available in the fridge..no particular brand but if you want really tasty fresh milk, go to Meidi-ya Supermarket , buy the Hokkaido milk or Morinaga milk which comes from Japan. It's about $11.00 per litre.

Jessica said...

Thanks yochana, oh ya forgot to ask.. this recipe can make how many egg tarts ?

yochana said...

Hi Jessica,

This is a subjective question...I forgot to count them and it's hard to give the no. cos it all depends on how you mould you tart shell, thin or thick??

Jessica said...

Hi yochana.. i bought the tart mould from phoon huat already.. will make this weekends.. oh ya.. did i need to grease the mould or put some flour on the mould, so that the egg tart can be taken out easily after baking. thanks.

rgds,
jessica
