This is another traditional South African recipe from Kook en Geniet and is great served with coffee or tea or as a dessert.  Contrary to traditional milk tart, this recipe does not need a puff pastry crust.

3 eggs (white and yolk separated)
1/2 cups (125 ml) sugar
1 cup (250 ml) flour
1 t (5 ml) baking powder
1/4 tsp (1ml) salt
1 t (5ml) vanilla essence
3 cups (750 ml) milk

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg white until stiff and frothy
  3. Blend butter, yolks, sugar
  4. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and add to 3.
  5. Stir in milk and vanilla essence. Blend well. (Be careful to avoid lumps)
  6. Fold beaten egg whites in and pour the mixture into a deep pie dish.
  7. Bake immediately at 375F for 40 minutes or until the mixture  is set.
  8. Serve warm.

    This is such a nice recipe, quick and easy to make.

    You bet. I usually bake it in a rectangular Pyrex dish and it is enough to serve a family of six with some left over.

    I love the recipe but as I am on a yacht, can the fresh milk be replaced with powdered milk?

    • wilhart

      I am pretty sure that powdered milk mixed with water (fresh water, that is!) will do the trick. Let us know how it works out!

    can i add i but off custard powder to the milk

    • wilhart

      I have never tried it. The flour and eggs thicken the milk and custard powder will do something similar. If you try it, let us know how it works out.

    Going to try this today, but surprised that there’s no cinnamon on top?
