Rice Cooker Egg Custard Tarts 电饭锅蛋挞





This is a small portion recipe which produces four egg custard tarts using a rice cooker to bake. The quantity is ideal for a family of four for a light tea break.
For quantity more than 4 tarts, baking in an oven would be a better choice. 

Yield: 4 x 5cm round egg tarts

Using 60g egg

Crust Ingredients
30g unsalted butter, softened
15g icing sugar
10g beaten egg
60g all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon zest (optional)

挞皮食材
30g 无盐奶油,室温回软
15g 糖霜
10g 打散的蛋
60g 普通面粉
1/8茶匙 盐
1/2茶匙 柠檬皮碎 (可不加)

Egg filling iingredients
35g beaten egg
20g fine sugar
55g milk
Pinch of salt

蛋馅食材
35g 打散的蛋
20g 细糖
55g 牛奶
少许盐

Directions
1. Strain the lightly beaten egg before use.
1. 将打散的蛋过滤。

2. Loosen the flour and salt by using a hand whisk.
用打蛋器搅散面粉和盐。

3. Cream the softened butter till it becomes pale yellow. Add in the icing sugar and mix well.
将软化的奶油稍微打发,加入糖霜混合。

4. Slowly add in the 10g (about 2.5 tsp) beaten egg and mix well. Followed by lemon zest.
慢慢加入10g的蛋(大概2.5茶匙)混均。再加入柠檬皮碎。


5. Fold in the flour using an spatula till the mixture turns into a soft smooth dough.  Shape the dough into a long cylindrical shape and wrap with food wrap. Let it cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
加入面粉用搅拌器混合成无粉粒的顺滑面糰。将面糰整成长条状,再用保鲜纸包好,放入冰箱冷藏20分钟。




6. While waiting for the dough to be ready, we can prepare the egg custard filling. Mix  the remaining beaten egg (about 35g) with sugar and milk. Try to stir lightly to minimize air bubble from forming.
在等待面糰的时候,我们可以准备蛋馅。将剩余的蛋液 (大约35g) 和糖跟牛奶混均。避免在搅拌时产生太多气泡。

7. When the dough is ready, divide it into 4 equal portions ( about 30g each) and shape into small balls.
将面糰平分成4份 (各大约30g),滚成圆球。

8. Place a dough in a chicken pie or mini tart mould. Press the dough to follow the wall of the mould to about 3/4 height.
将小面糰放入圆模中,用手指压成碗状,高度约3/4模高。




9. Pour in the egg custard mixture from (6) into the four tart shells. 
将混合好的蛋液倒入挞模中。

10. Place the four raw tarts into the rice cooker. Select the 'Quick Cook' function, or normal rice cooking function, and start the first cooking cycle.
If you are using the 'Cake'function to bake, stop the baking process at around 25 to 30 minutes. The full 45 minutes cycle will over-cook the egg filling.
将生蛋挞放入电饭锅中。选择“快煮”功能或一般煮饭功能,启动功能做第一轮的烹煮。
如果你用“烤蛋糕”功能来烤,只需烘至25~30分钟。一般电子锅的“烤蛋糕”功能需40~45分钟,过长的烘烤时间会让蛋糊干掉。


10. When the rice cooker beeps, indicating the cooking process is over, re-select the 'Quiick Cook' function, and let the egg tarts go through a second round of cooking process.
当烹煮完成,再启动第二轮的烹煮。蛋挞经过两轮的烹煮,效果较佳。

11. When the second cooking process is over, open the rice cooker lid to check whether the tarts are cooked.
当第二轮的烹煮结束,打开锅盖再查看蛋挞是否煮熟。

If the egg tart is cooked, the crust will detach from the mould, and the egg custard is firm.
如果蛋挞已熟,挞皮会离模,蛋馅会凝固。

12. Transfer the egg tarts to a wire rack to cool down for about 10 minutes. Remove the tarts from the mould when it is still warm.
将蛋挞放凉10分钟。当蛋挞还有微温时,将蛋挞脱模。


13. Serve warm:)
乘热享用 :)





Yon can also bake these tarts in a oven set at 170 degree Celsius for about 20 to 25 minutes.

    3. Hi Angela, 欢迎你一起讨论问题。如果你的电饭锅有烘烤功能,应该没问题。万一真的不熟,可用烤炉或有盖的平底镬。祝你成功 😊

    1. Hi Christine sim, you can bake at 170 degree C for about 20 to 25 minutes. As the quantity is too small, it is more practical to mix using hand whisk :)

    4. Hi Christine, you can use any brand of fresh milk. Yes, you can use aluminum foil mould, but it not easy to clean for recycling use :)
