Lilian said... Hi,I just want to know the egg tarts can I use apple vinegar or normal vinegar? Tks Lilian May 4, 2007 11:40:00 AM SGT
ds said... Lilian, the purpose of the vinegar is to allow the egg fillings to set easier. U may use either apple vinegar or normal vinegar. Both also no problem. ds May 4, 2007 1:20:00 PM SGT
MN said... Dear Irene /Violet, I have a question, do I need to bake the pastry for 5 mins before pouring the egg mixture? Because, I have tried without baking the pastry first and the tart don't taste is cook at the bottom. Thank you. From : MN May 4, 2007 3:12:00 PM SGT
Bebe said... Hi Violet/ Irene I had attended a baking class before and had learnt to make egg tarts, the method is slightly different. Instead of cutting out the shape and place on the mould, we were taught to take the dough and directly press and shape on the mould. Can this dough be done that way also?
And another question is, do we need to bake the pastry without the "egg fillings" for about 5 mins first and to wait for the pastry to cool down before pouring in the egg fillings and bake for another 5 mins?
Just want to know will there be any different in this 2 ways of baking the pastry?? Thank you Bebe May 4, 2007 4:49:00 PM SGT
Irene said... Hi MN, 我们的蛋塔和葡式蛋塔，塔皮是不需要先烘的，你先制做蛋奶馅，做好后放进冰箱，才去做塔皮，塔皮做好后，直接把蛋奶馅倒进塔皮内，就可以烘烤了，不同的 recipe 有不同的做法，你看我的图片，color 是不是很均衡 ？请放心照做吧！ok ?
Hi, 1 cup of water is : 250 ml
Hi BeBe 1) "to take the dough and directly press and shape on the mould." 是的！你也可以这么做。 2) u don't need to bake the pastry without the " egg fillings" for about 5 mins first, 不同的 recipe 有不同的做法，你看我的图片，color 是不是很均衡 ？请放心照做吧！ok ? May 5, 2007 9:37:00 AM SGT
