This is a recipe that was given me by a friend from South Africa. There is nothing complicated or sophisticated about it. Maybe that's why it tastes so good. Be sure to make this if you have kids.

I made this tart for Easter dinner and it was easy to make and delicious. I halved the recipe and used a single 10 inch springform pan. After coming to room temp, I placed the tart in the fridge for an hour. The fridge helped firm up the tart and I was surprised how nicely it sliced. I will be making this again! Thanks for posting.

I made this a couple of nights ago and forgot to post a review. It was a way for me to get rid of an excess of milk that I had in the cooler, and I think they turned out quite nice. I kept expecting the filling to firm up a little more, but it really didn't do that..after reading other reviews I found that it was to be a little "messy". My friends loved the taste, and I too thought that it was very similar to rice pudding. I added a little nutmeg on top with the cinnamon, and omitted the sugar topping. My friend mentioned that it tasted similar to an Afghani pudding that had cardamom in it. I will try that next time. Thanks Evelyn!

Delicious! It's custard-like, but on the milky side. I made half the recipe, substituted half of the sugar for brown sugar, and swirled the cinnamon sugar on top. Excellent recipe to use up extra milk.
