Prep Time 30 minutes
Cooking Time 25 minutes
Baking Pan Rose Gold Perforated Mini Quiche & Tart Pan 12 Cup
Makes 12


  • 5 egg yolks
  • ½ cup caster sugar plus 2 teaspoon extra for pastry
  • 3 teaspoons plain flour, plus extra to dust
  • 3 teaspoons corn flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups milk
  • ⅓ cup pure (thin) cream
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 sheets frozen all-butter puff pastry, thawed
  • Baby mint leaves and icing sugar to serve

Roasted Berries
  • 250g strawberries hulled
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 125g raspberries
  • 200g mixed berries (we used raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)

Step 1

To make filling, place egg yolks, sugar, and flours in a large saucepan. Whisk until smooth and combined. Add milk, cream, lemon zest and vanilla and whisk to combine. Place over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, for 10 minutes or until thickened and the consistency of thickened cream. Strain through a fine sieve into a heatproof bowl and cover directly with plastic wrap. Chill completely.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 220°C (fan-forced) and place a baking tray on the bottom of the oven and an oven rack towards the top. Brush perforated 12 Cup Mini Quiche & Tart pan with some of the melted butter.

Step 3

Working with one piece of pastry at a time. Place pastry on a clean work surface lightly dusted with flour and cut into 4 even squares. Brush lightly with butter and scatter with one teaspoon of the extra sugar. Stack pastry squares directly on top of one another, making sure the last piece is flipped to give a clean pastry top. Then use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out to a 20x30cm piece. Cut into 6 square pieces and use to line 6 pan holes. Brush with butter and repeat with remaining piece of puff pastry. Freeze for 20 minutes or until pastry is firm and cold.

Step 4

Trim and neaten pastry, leaving some overhang with a sharp knife. Divide custard mixture between cases and bake, towards the top of the oven, for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden and custard has puffed slightly. Use a blow torch to brulee the tops. Cool tarts in pan for 10 minutes.

Step 5

Meanwhile for roasted berries, place strawberries and lemon juice in a shallow roasting tray and drizzle with honey. Roast for 5 minutes or until warmed through then stir through remaining berries.

Step 6

Serve tarts topped with spoonful’s of roasted berries, baby mint leaves and dust with icing sugar.
