How to Make Homemade Hong Kong Style Egg Tart Dan Tat Recipe

Egg Tart - a pastry crust that is filled with egg custard and then baked. Whether it's Hong Kong (Dan Tat) or Portuguese (Pastel de nata) style, the delicious taste and delightful smell is a favourite among many. It's a must-have when going to Dim Sum or a Chinese Bakery. What I love about egg tarts are the flakiness of the crust and the sweet custard. Take a bite and enjoy the taste of sweet egg custard followed by the warm flaky pastry. Here's a simple egg tart recipe you'll be sure to love.

Instructions: 

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil until sugar dissolves

Remove saucepan from heat and let the sugar-water mixture cool to room temperature


In a bowl, whisk eggs and pour sugar-water mixture


Using another bowl, strain mixture through a sieve


Stir in evaporated milk and vanilla into the mixture and pass it through a sieve once more


*Reason we sieve the mixture is to avoid unnecessary bubbles and create a smooth custard finish

How to Make Homemade Hong Kong Style Egg Tart Dan Tat RecipePreheat oven to 350F/180C

Place tart shells on a baking sheet for easy transportation

Fill tarts evenly using a ladle or an ice cream scoop spoon (NOTE: Depending on the size of the tart, you may need more or less tart shells)

Bake for 10-15 minutes, rotate baking sheet, lower heat to 300F/150C and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until crust is lightly golden brown and custard is ready

To know if your custard is ready: Insert a toothpick in the middle of the custard, if it stands on its own, it's done!


Enjoy!
