Tarta de Nata Recipe
I love these little cakes. Nothing like the dried up ones we got in Jersey, these are wonderful. I have not tried making them yet, but just googled this Portuguese recipe and translated it. Going to give it a go sometime, but at 1 euro for a tata and a coffee I am not going to give it up anytime soon.
We had these ones in the cafe down in town, for breakfast!!!
1 package puff pastry purchase
4 whole eggs
150 g sugar (7 tablespoons)
30 grams of cornstarch (3 tablespoons shallow)
Rub margarine and line a pie tray with removable bottom pastry (I used the whole package - he had 400 grams - but not worth it. It should be better with only half the mass extended more thin).
In a bowl mix the sugar with the flour and eggs (I used whole eggs). Mexi well.
I took a pan to heat the milk with lemon peel and cinnamon stick and almost let boil.
Joined the two preparations, stirred well and brought back to the stove until the mixture thickens.
Pricked the dough with a fork (do not know why, but I have fulfilled this rule ...) and poured inside the preparation.
I took the oven.
I set the oven to 200 º and cook for 25 minutes.
