Gypsy Tart II

Top Review by Teachart

This recipe sounds so simple, but I have made it several times (twice today!) and it A) always comes out different and B) never tastes the way it used to at school. I have also tried boiling the evaporated in milk (still in the can) in a pan of water and then cooling it, before whipping it with the sugar, which improved it a bit. There must be a knack in it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Whisk evaporated milk and sugar together for 10 - 15 minutes until light and fluffy. The mix should be coffee coloured.
  3. Pour the mix into the pastry case and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. The gypsy tart will have a slightly sticky surface but will not be set completely until it has been left to cool.
  5. Serve cold.
