Recipe: Matcha Custard Fruit Tarts

Ok, finally found some time to write about my matcha custard fruit tarts! 

Actually a lot more recipes that I want to share with everyone but.. 


Haha! Ok. I'm trying. :P

Anyway, back to this matcha fruit tarts. If you're a big fan of matcha, this is for you! ^^

Ingredients for tart shell (make about 25 mini tarts):
300g plain flour
2 tbsp custard powder
1 egg
1 tbsp sugar 
200g cold  butter

1. Cut cold butter into small cubes.
2. Combine flour and custard powder, mix well.
3. Rub in the cold butter.
4. Add sugar, mix well and add beaten egg, mix to form a soft dough.
5. Wrap with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.
6. Divide the dough into 25 equal portions. Press the dough into tart mould evenly.
7. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 20 mins.

Ingredients for matcha custard filling:
400g fresh milk + 2tbsp matcha powder
4 egg yolk
80g sugar
80g all purpose flour

1. Cook the fresh milk and matcha powder over low heat until just boil. Set aside.
2. Using a mixer, whip the egg yolk with sugar until combined.
3. Sieve in the all purpose flour into (2). Mix well.
4. Slowly, pour in the boiled milk into (3). Mix well. 
5. Sieve the mixture. 
6. Using a low heat, cook and stir (5) until it forms a custard. Remove from heat immediately. 
7. Cover the custard with plastic wrapper while it is still hot (to prevent the custard from drying). Let it cools completely before storing in the fridge. 

To assemble:1. After the tart shells have cooled, coat the shells with a layer of nutella or any other jam that you like (this is to prevent the wet custard from turning the shells soggy). 2. Retrieve the matcha custard from the fridge and spoon equal portions into the shells. 3. Top the tarts with sliced strawberry or any other fruits that we like. 

Super love the taste of matcha custard!! 

I highly recommend you to use good matcha powder! It makes A LOT of differences! 

Mr Tan and I love the matcha custard so much that we use it as jam and sauce for other food as well! Hahaha! 

Food taste better when you make it together. <3 

Surely a new favourite sweet treat for Mr Tan.

He said this is #2 favourite bake from me! 

Guess what is his favourite?

Go read my dayre! :P
