Egg Custard Tart Recipe
Categories Recipes

Egg Custard Tart

For the sweet pastry
• 165g Plain flour, plus extra for dusting
• 25g Almond powder
• 120g Chilled unsalted butter, cubed
• 55g Caster sugar
• 1no free-range egg
For the custard filling
• 700ml Pint full-fat milk
• 7nos Free-range egg yolks
• 90g Caster sugar
• A pinch Freshly ground nutmeg


For the pastry:

1. Stir the flour and almond powder together in a large bowl, then add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
2. Add egg to the flour and mix it gently till it forms a soft dough.
3. Do not knead the dough. Gently bring it together and place it on a work surface and shape it into a ball. Flatten with your fingers to a disc and wrap in cling film. Leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 200C.
5. Roll out the sweet pastry into a a thin sheet, and cut 4 inches discs.
6. Lline the muffin tray moulds with the pastry circle. The pastry should overlap the top of the moulds by a few millimetres, so that you can crimp the edges if you wish.
7. For the custard filling, warm the milk in a saucepan, and beat the egg yolks and sugar together in a separate bowl until pale and creamy.
8. Pour the milk onto the egg yolk mixture and stir well, creating little bubbles.
9. Transfer the custard mixture into a pouring jug with a lip, then fill each of the tart cases.
10. Sprinkle a small pinch of ground nutmeg into the middle of each tart.
11. Bake the tarts in the oven for about 25 minutes at 200 C. Bring the temp down to 170C for the final 10 minutes.
12. You are looking for a very slight dome on the custard, indicating that it is baked.
13. Cool in the tin for 30 minutes and then carefully remove from the moulds. The base of the tarts should be perfectly baked through, without having over-cooked the custard filling.
14. If the custard domes too much this indicates that you have over-cooked the custard, it will have boiled, and will sink back down leaving a big dip. If this does happen you can help rescue it by removing the tarts from the oven immediately and placing the tin in cold water on a cold surface.
