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.

Pastéis de Nata AKA Portuguese Custard Tarts.

This recipe came about after seeing Grimm Green review a juice called 'Taruto', it sounded delicious but being from Australia, I wasn't able to find it without paying exorbitant shipping costs; thus I decided to try and make my own take on the profile.

NOTES:

TPA PIE CRUST / CAP FUNNEL CAKE / INW BISCUIT / TPA BUTTER
This is the base for the butter pastry cup. They all mix together well to create a nice flaky, all butter, decadent pastry for the custard to sit on.

CAP VAN CUSTARD / CAP CDS / FW DULCE DE LECHE / FLV COOKIE DOUGH
This is obviously the custard filling, the vanilla custard, dulce de leche 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. The Dulce de Leche adds more of a sweetened milkiness to the custard, it adds a brightness and really boosts it into something delicious and unique. The Cinnamon Danish swirl is there to add the cinnamon, is also adds a bit of fluffiness to the pastry base. I would have just gone with FLV Rich Cinnamon instead of CDS, however I don't have it, give it a try?

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.

Croissant aux Amandes
(Almond Croissant)

After 25 iterations, this was the closest i've been able to get. It's been my "White Whale" since I started mixing about a year ago. This recipe is delicious and has been since #5, but was always missing something.

NOTES:

FA Almond / INW Marzipan / TPA Pistachio
This combination is there to form the Almond, The Marzipan plays two parts, it boosts the almond as well as plays as the backbone as the marzipan filling. The Pistachio is there to hopefully add a bit more nuttiness to the Almond as well as help replicate the slithered almonds found on top.

FA Meringue
The Meringue is here to add a bit of powdered sugar on top,

TPA Pie Crust / INW Biscuit / CAP Cereal 27 / FA Zepolla / TPA Butter
The is the nucleus of the recipe, they bring it all together to form a nice, buttery croissant. The Zepolla creates a nice cake bass, adding the Cereal 27 adds a bit of a cooked quality along with some nice texture. Pie Crust, Biscuit, and Butter brings the fluffiness down and adds the pastry texture and taste of a croissant.

INW Marzipan / FLV Butterscotch / CAP Vanilla Custard
Mixing these creates a decadent Marzipan filling,

By no means is this a shake and vape, needs at least a 5 day steep...but the longer the better.

Let me know what you think! I always welcome constructive criticism.

I've been sick for over a week now, and was reading up on how INW Eucalyptus With Mint really does help sooth the throat. In Australia, our go to throat soothing lozenge has been Butter-Menthol's for the last forever. These are exactly as they sound, an icy punch with a nice soothing buttery follow up. My inspiration came at a time when I needed it most, and for me, this is spot on.

The Juice is best after a few days when the Eucalyptus With Mint has had a chance to settle down, but I enjoy it straight off the bat.
An icy menthol blast, followed up by a buttery smooth exhale...if you're sick like me right now, give it a go.

I hope you get better.

Hugs

"Diane, 11:30 a.m., February Twenty-fourth. Entering the town of Twin Peaks, five miles south of the Canadian border, twelve miles west of the state line. I've never seen so many trees in my life. As W. C. Fields would say, I'd rather be here than Philadelphia. Fifty-four degrees on a slightly overcast day. Weatherman said rain. If you could get paid that kind of money for being wrong sixty percent of the time, it'd beat working. Mileage is seventy-nine thousand three hundred forty-five, gauge is on reserve, riding on fumes here, I've got to tank up when I get into town. Remind me to tell you how much that is. Lunch was, uh, six dollars and thirty-one cents at the Lamplighter Inn, that's on Highway Two near Lewis Fork. That was a tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat, slice of cherry pie, and a cup of coffee. Damn good food. Diane, if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop. Okay. Looks like I'll be meeting up with the, ah, Sheriff Harry S. Truman. Shouldn't be too hard to remember that. He'll be at the Calhoun Memorial Hospital. I guess we're going to go up to intensive care and take a look at that girl that crawled down the railroad tracks off the mountain. When I finish there I'll be checking into a motel. I'm sure the sheriff will be able to recommend a clean place, reasonably priced. That's what I need, a clean place, reasonably priced...

...Oh Diane, I almost forgot. Got to find out what kind of trees these are. They're really something."

A buttery sweet doughnut, dipped in melted chocolate, served fresh. Have with a coffee for afternoon tea.

Flavour Notes:
INW Biscuit / FW Yellow Cake / FA Joy - This is a fantastic dough base to start from, all three come together to form a wonderful cakey taste and mouth-feel. FW Yellow Cake can be subbed for other Yellow Cakes, I use this because deliciousness.

CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl - Used here at 1.25% to add a little bit of spice to the mix.

CAP Funnel Cake - I've been experimenting with Funnel Cake a lot, Used here at 5% it really boosts the Doughnut right into another stratosphere. It gives the cake a fried texture along with a sweetness on the exhale, The Funnel Cake is the real work dog of the recipe.

INW Milk Chocolate / CAP Butter Cream - Used together for the chocolate glaze, This combo gives a nice buttery milk chocolate taste that sits on the tip of the tongue. The Butter Cream adds a creamy, glazey note to the chocolate, they work together to create a wonderfully, rich, chocolate glaze....like best friends do.

I love this as a shake 'n' Vape, but would say it could do with at least a 7 day steep to let the chocolate and Butter Cream really meld.

Banana Fritters with Vanilla Ice-Cream like my Mother never made me.

Flavour Notes:
FA Banò (banana) - I used this because it's a really nice natural banana flavour, no candy tones here. at 3% it adds a nice banana creaminess, without being overpowering.
CAP Funnel Cake - This is the main star of the recipe, at 6% it really adds that crispy, battered, deep fried flavour with a nice powdered sugar feel on the exhale. (edit: I bought this down by half....)
TPA VBIC - This does two jobs here, it adds the vanilla to the fritters, but also starts off the ice cream with the thickness and creaminess one craves.
FA Meringue - Taking a cue from Wayne Walkers (ENYAWREKLAW) Cuprian here. The Meringue adds a thickness to the ice cream, and adds buttery notes to the fritters.
TPA Marshmellow - Thanks again Wayne! Gives the recipe a nice Ice Cream mouth feel, at 1% allows the Funnel Cake to do it's thing.
CAP Bavarian Cream - Mixed at 1% gives the ice cream a nice creamy boost.

Pretty great as a shake n' Vape, but even better after 7 days steep.

Banging as a S'V, 30 ml won't last me the steep time...
User: ActionRalf Score: 5 Entered: 5 months ago
I made this yesterday, even without a steep it is tremendous. I've personally never had a more on point cereal vape.
