Butter tarts are known as a uniquely Canadian dessert that combines a flaky pastry crust with a sticky-sweet filling. At Toronto's DaanGo Cake Lab—run by Christopher Siu from Masterchef Canada Season 2—a Miso Butter Tart is offered that puts an Asian-inspires spin on the classic Canadian treat. As DaanGo Cake Lab describes: "Each tart features a blend of Vanilla, Brown butter and Miso to create a unforgettable sweet experience."
Rather than being made with corn syrup or brown sugar, the tart is made with maltose, which is commonly found in a number of Chinese sweets.
DaanGo Cake Lab's Signature Tart Collection also includes options like Pistachio Raspberry, Citron, Blueberry Cheese, as well as Honey and Cheese.
