Hi Ann… I wanna ask if I can substitute custard powder with milk powder and what difference would it makes? Secondly, how many grams is the pineapple filling do you use for each tart?
I used one of your pineapple tart recipe for years, but it called for milk powder instead of custard powder. However, the recipe is so nice and the tarts literally has melt in the mouth effect. Thanks so much for sharing and I’m looking forward to hearing from you
Hi June, Thank you for trying my recipe 🙂 Hope you’ll continue to “HUAT” all year through! This recipe with custard powder is soft but not melt in your mouth type. You cannot change the custard powder to milk powder as it will have milky taste. The pineapple filling is about 12g or 10g if you want a smaller size.
I do not know at all, thank you for sharing this
Wow…can I have one?? This year I'm too busy and not able to bake much, maybe I will try this out after the CNY..haa!! Wish you & your family a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year !!

Hi Ann, I have been looking for a recipe so I can make Chinese Cheesecake in a wonton cup. I have eaten them at a Chinese buffet in Kansas City, MO. I live in Oklahoma now and we can not get decent Chinese food here. I miss New York Chinese food so much.
So I have learned to cook it at home. Hope you can help me with this recipe…
Thank you very much, regards
Hi Karen, Sorry that I’ve never heard of Chinese cheescake before. Do you have a picture of it? You can upload the pic if you have in your reply comment box. Just click on the icon above the post comment.
