Milktart / Melk Tert
South African Milktart — Easy steps!
Making the base
Blend some biscuits & enough butter together to make a smooth paste.
I use Marie biscuits or Tennis biscuits, but any similar biscuit will do.
Spread this paste thin onto your dish of choice.
Leave in fridge for base to harden a bit.
next, while the base is chilling, we can do the filling…
Making the filling
Boil 1 litre milk & 2 heaped tablespoons of butter
While you wait for the above to boil, whisk the following all together in another bowl:
3 Tablespoons corn flour (heaped)
3 Tablespoons flour (heaped)
Pinch of salt
Teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup sugar (250ml)
Slowly pour the above mixture (thin stream) into the boiling pot.
Whisk entire mixture whilst you pour.
Continue to whisk until thick (around 15min)
Pour filling onto base
Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Leave inside fridge overnight.
