Do you like egg tarts ? I love them.. and always buy whenever I happened to pass by a bakery. Actually it is not too difficult to make egg tarts. I got this recipe from Bro Rozzan’s blog (check out my blogroll. Tq, bro).
Ingredients for the pastry:
500 gm all purpose flour
125 gm icing sugar (I find it too sweet, try to use less)
250 gm cold butter
2 eggs – medium size
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
250 g water
125 g sugar
5 eggs – medium size
100 g evaporated milk.
For the pastry, first sieve the flour and the icing sugar. Then mix the flour, icing sugar and butter. (I grated my cold butter first).
For the egg filling, boil water with sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Let the syrup cool to room temperature. Then add the eggs and milk. Beat the mixture until all is incorporated. Run the mixture through a sieve and it’s ready to use.
Look what happen to my egg tart, I peeked into the oven and saw this !
The recipe above makes about 23 egg tarts, so you might want to halve the recipe if you have a small family/ tummy. Or you can keep the leftover dough in your fridge and use it later. Maybe with a different filling – tuna mayo, or karipap style, up to you.
Happy baking !
