German Pudding Tart is recently one of the popular desserts in Asia. It is similar to HK-style egg tart, except it is 2x bigger in size. The tart shell is a buttery shortbread crust, and the filling is silky smooth and tastes just like pudding. If you have a butane torch, you can easily make a creme brulee version. It may look difficult, but it only requires minimal ingredients and less than 30 minutes to prepare. It is satisfying to bite into a treat with such contrasting texture.
I also added some homemade Houjicha Chestnut Spread as a topping to the German Pudding Tart. It gives a nutty flavor and tastes just like fall.
