A South African lip-smacking treat 

Biscuit Base
125 g pure butter
Half cup (125 ml) castor sugar
One Small egg
Vanilla essence
One cup cake flour (250 ml)
One cup self-raising flour

1 liter milk
1 cup sugar
Stick cinnamon
3 Cardamon

Combine filling ingredients in a pot and bring to boil.
Put the plate off and close the pot, then allow to cool with the lid closed.
When cool whisk in 9 XL eggs 1 at a time.
Pour mixture through a tea strainer.
Sprinkle fine elachi (Cardamon) over milk tart

Bake for ± one hour on 180C

☆ Roll your biscuit dough between 2 plastic sheets and line out the pyrex dish.
Refrigerate to harden.
Add your milk mixture and bake. Enjoy 🍶🍶🍶

  1. This is the first time I have come across this. Must be yummy!

  2. Thanks for this, Esme, I don’t have a good milk tart recipe.

  3. This is what we call an egg custard tart in England or we make it just as an egg custard no base …One of my favourites 🙂

    • Correct, this is a typical SA version, and we also make it crustless. Again many variations on the theme

  4. Love the flavors!

    • Another typical South African treat. Made my version of it as vegan yesterday.

  5. Hi Esme,

    this is just a test comment with all plugins activated. I think I found the problem and it was with WordPress Jetpack. Everything should be working correctly now though.

    Kind regards
