DIY E-Liquid Recipe

Pastéis de Nata AKA Portuguese Custard Tarts. [Revisited]

A few months ago I shared a new recipe I'd been developing for a while, a Portuguese Custard Tart. Having now received a few concentrates from Wonder Flavors, I decided to give this another crack.

This new revised recipe is a lot more with what I wanted, on the draw you get a face-full of rich custard; on the exhale you are met with a nice flaky, golden, buttery pastry that lingers on the tongue.

I have included updated notes below.

NOTES:

TPA PIE CRUST / CAP FUNNEL CAKE / WF BUTTER TART / WF CREPE / INW BISCUIT
This is the base for the butter pastry cup. The first batch of the new revisited recipe omitted the Funnel Cake, without it I found the pastry cup tasted raw and underdeveloped, The funnel cake adds a cooked and somewhat caramelized note to the pastry. The WF Crepe give the pastry dough more weight, it adds a nice denseness without distracting from the flaky pastry you get from WF Butter Tart.

CAP VAN CUSTARD/ FLV RICH CINNAMON / FLV COOKIE DOUGH
This is obviously the custard filling, the vanilla custard and cookie dough create a nice dense custard with caramel notes, having the vanilla custard at such a high percentage means the eggy notes are pretty obvious and up there which is what I wanted, however adds a lot to the steep time. In the original recipe I used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl to add a bit of a spicy note, this is now done with FLV Rich Cinnamon, which adds more authenticity to the profile and doesn't bog it down with too much of a bready note.

TPA BROWN SUGAR / TPA TOASTED MARSHMALLOW
This works with the cookie dough and toasted marshmallow to create a caramelized and 'burnt sugar' taste to the custard, like it's fresh out of the oven. The toasted marshmallow was also added to fluff everything out and provide the nice mouth feel you get from the recipe.

Give this bad boy at least a 10 day steep to let the custard really come together.

As always, constructive criticism is always welcome.
