Recipe's preparation

    Sweet Pastry
  1. I followed my EDC

    Put flour butter sugar and salt into TM bowl 10 secs/speed 6 until it looks like crumbs.

    Set dial to closed lid, add water and knead 20 secs/Dough mode. refrigerate and roll out to line a small pie shell 20 - 24cm.

    Blind bake until lightly golden.

  2. Filling

    Place agar agar. sugar and 250g of the milk into TM. 3min/Varoma/speed 1.

    Add 100g millk and both eggs and vanilla 30 secs/speed 3.

    Place pie dish into a bain marie, (a larger tin with enough boiling water to go halfway up the sides of your pie dish). Pour milk mixture into tart shell. Bake for 25 mins @ 150 C.

    The milktart will have a slight wobble - but refegerate until chilled and set and sprikle liberally with cinnamon.

    Impress your South African mates!



I found original milk tart full of gluten and gluey....this is lighter.....and the filling is GLUTEN FREE!! so if you want to use GF flour for your pastry everyone can enjoy milk tart

    My milktart started baking at 150deg. but then when it was not really cooking much at all, I turned it up to 180deg. and cooked for a total of 40mins. End result was great. Will defiantely make again, but I won't stress out next time when I realise its not cooking. I guess all oven tempuratures are different. So happy it wasn't a flop though tmrc_emoticons.D Also, I made a GF crust which was brilliant!
