If you’re from, or have visited, Hong Kong in the past, I’m sure you’re familiar with these Hong Kong Style Eggettes (雞蛋仔). They are one popular street food originated in Kong Kong. I grew up eating a lot of them as after school snacks. It’s definitely another nostalgic treat for me besides these. Eggettes (雞蛋仔) are typically made with a batter consists of flour, eggs, sugar, water and evaporated milk.
The batter is then cooked in a special iron eggette plates (as shown in the picture below) over the stove top. My Dad got me this eggette pan when he travelled to Hong Kong last year. Good news is, you can also get one from the States, I’ll put up a link at the end of this post for your reference.
There are many flavor variations of eggettes these days including chocolate, green tea, or even filled with mochi (sticky rice balls). Today, I’m going to share with you the originally flavor before moving on to more exotic ones. When you buy these eggette in Hong Kong, they are usually put in a brown paper bag, perfect as a snack on the go. While I was searching for something to hold these eggette for the photo shoot, my Baby Girl suggested that I use these pink paper cups (see picture above) to hold the eggette. I say, she had a pretty good sense of food styling, just like Mama.
Check out the video below on how to make them.

These eggetees are crunchy on the outside with crispy edges (my favorite parts) along with a soft and tender interior texture. It’s packed with wonderful egg and custard flavors.
