In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players can create a delicious egg tart with only a few ingredients. When researching egg tart recipes, I came across a recipe for Chinese-style egg tarts, and I figured this was the closest thing to the tarts made in the game.
While these tarts have a few more ingredients than they do in the game, they’re not difficult to make. The shell is sweet and crispy, while the filling is like a simple egg pudding. You could add more flavors to these tarts if you wanted, but they are yummy just as they are. I used this recipe and slightly adapted it for my needs. (Mainly, I just halved the recipe since it’s only my husband and me at home and we don’t need dozens of egg tarts!)
Egg Tart – A Legend of Zelda Recipe
For the crust:
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 egg white (save the yolk for the filling)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
For the filling:
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 4 eggs, plus one egg yolk, beaten
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- Sift together the powdered sugar and flour.
- Cut the butter into the sugar/flour mixture until it forms pea-sized crumbs.
- Add the egg white and vanilla and mix until it forms a smooth dough.
- Press the dough into individual tart pans, or a muffin tin, and set aside.
- To make the filling, combine the granulated sugar and water in a sauce pan, and cook on medium high heat until dissolved, stirring constantly. Allow the mixture to cool.
- Whisk together the remaining eggs, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Add the cool sugar water and mix well. Make sure the sugar water is not hot, or else the eggs will curdle.
- Divide the filling evenly among the tart shells.
- Bake the tarts at 450 degrees F for about 15 minutes, until they turn golden brown.
- Allow the tarts to cool before serving. The custard will set more as it cools.
