I really recommend the above recipe! I think it's the simplest one I have ever come across! Will definitely try again with a smaller mold! As you can see, my mold is kinda too big. :/ Anyways, my brother was over-joyed to see the egg tarts! :D Ate them while they were still warm, really good!!!

2. Pour the mixture into a lightly oiled pan and steam for 40mins
3. Let it cool before spooning and toss well with grounded peanuts and sugar. Ready to serve!

Steamed and cooled. 


Apparently this is my mum and my favourite snack! hehe! :) Ate it while I was tossing them with the peanuts and sugar. Yum yum! :P

Bascially spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen and I'm loving it! :D
