I made these mini Portuguese egg tarts for a birthday party a couple of days ago and I just have to share the pictures above with you because they are simply too cute. Somehow the mini egg tarts tasted even better than the regular ones I made months ago. I am also entering this to “June 2007 Monthly Mingle – Birthday Party Bang” organized by “What’s for Lunch, Honey?” My friends loved these mini Portuguese egg tarts and I hope Meeta likes them too for her upcoming birthday…

    Tiga – Hehe, you posted the comment while I was still editing my post, thanks for catching the typo, fixed. :)

    Lemongrass – yeah, you are too lucky as you are in KL, just walk out and bakeries are easier available.

    For the love of food – yes, mini is the way to go now.

    Lucia – thanks for voting. :)

    Claude – this is not really an European dish, but I guess it was influenced by the Portuguese. These egg tarts are very very popular in Hong Kong, Macau, and places like Malaysia, etc. But I am sure there is a real European version of egg custard tarts.

    Pablo – haha, exactly. They are the best fresh out of the oven and I can pop many of these at once.

    Jackson – oh, thanks for your kind words. :)

    Cynthia – I hope to read your post when you make them. :)

    Bee Nee – thanks for your comment. I am not really that mini but I love mini foods of all kinds.

    Novice Baker – thanks for your vote (very pai seh!).

    Lydia – cute they are. :)

    Budding Cook – thanks for voting.

    Single Guy – yes, mini means you can eat double without having to feel guilty! LOL.

    Kama – thanks for your kind words. Actually many food bloggers got nominated so this is really not all that. ;P

    Meiyen – yes, so cute and so adorable, that’s why I love them. Thanks for voting for me.

    (btw, the Blogger’s Choice Awards are run by PayPerPost. I’m not sure if you want to be affiliated with that.)

    Downtown Newark, NJ is like Little Portugal and one of my best friend’s fiance is Portugese so I have eaten quite a few of those egg tarts. Personally, I prefer the Chinese version because of the flakier crust and softer custard. The Portugese version has a breadier crust.

  23. Chubbypanda says:

    The browned tops tell me these were good tarts.

  24. Jian says:

    o.o they look so beautiful >.<
