Twrl Milk Tea Egg Tart Recipe

Twrl Milk Tea Egg Tart Recipe

One of our all-time favorite sweets has to be the egg tart, and we are so excited to share our special take on this classic pastry: the milk tea egg tart! Our egg tart recipe is elevated with the unique bubble tea flavor complimenting the decadent custard. This recipe is adapted from Cherry on My Sundae, view the original recipe here. We simplified the baking process by using Twrl Milk Tea, saving time and dishes by eliminating the need to brew and cool tea. It's simple to use—no mess, less clean up, save time—simply pour & stir in. Then you're ready to go! Voila!

This milk tea egg tart can be made with any of our milk tea flavors inspired by the boba teas found at your favorite cafes: Original Black Milk Tea, Supreme Jasmine Milk Tea or Hojicha Roasted Green Milk Tea.

Twrl Milk Tea Egg Tart Recipe


Shortcrust pastry dough

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter cut into small chunks
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon water

Milk tea custard

  • 1 can of Twrl Milk Tea (any flavor)
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Make the shortcrust pastry dough**. Combine 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour with ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoon powdered sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Add ½ cup butter and blend in the ingredients with a pastry cutter or food processor until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Add 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water and mix just until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.

  3. Meanwhile, make the filling.  Whisk together 4 eggs with ½ cup evaporated milk and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour in 1 can of Twrl Milk Tea to the mixture, whisking until well combined. 

  4. Dust a clean work counter with flour. Roll out the shortcrust pastry until it's about ⅛ inch thick. Cut out squares big enough to cover the mini tart shells and line the shells with the pastry dough, making sure not to stretch the dough too much. Place the shells on a baking sheet and chill for 10 minutes.

  5. Remove the shells from the fridge and trim off any excess dough that hangs over the edges. Use a stainer, pour and fill the shells with the milk tea custard until it's about 80% full. Bake the tarts for 10-12 minutes or until the edges of the custard have set. The center will still be a little jiggly.

  6. Let the milk tea custards slightly cool. Serve warm.

Time Saving Tips:

  • **Swap out the shortbread crust for a pre-made one from the store to save yourself the work and wait of making a homemade one!

  • Let the star of the show shine—ditch the crust all together! If you want to save the most time and cut down on carbs, don't make the crust and pour the filling mixture directly into a ramekin for a crème brûlée like dessert.
