South African Crustless Milk Tart

This desert recipe was given to me by my South African friend Sheralee. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious. Posted for ZWT 4.


  1. Put all the ingredients together into a bowl or food processor and beat to a smooth batter.
  2. Pour into a buttered pie dish (approximately 23cm/9" in diameter, but it doesn't matter if it's not exact, the finished tart will just be either a bit deeper or shallower). Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes at 175C / 350°F
  4. Serve warm or cold. It sinks and becomes denser as it cools. If you eat it hot you'll need a spoon to scoop up the soft custardy tart but cold you can pick up the slices in your hand, if it hasn't vanished long before then. :).

The recipe is user friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed the milk tart for its simplicity and delicious flavor. I could have scaled down the original serving size from 6-8 to 4. But, the large batch was worth it as I had milk tart served cool in the morning with a hot cup of coffee. Or, after dinner with a glass of sweet, dessert wine. Yum! By the way, I dusted the top of the milk tart before baking with a blend of cinnamon and sugar so I ended up with a very light caramelized crust.

So easy and good! Loved that I could make the whole thing using one bowl (my mixer) It doesn't look very pretty, but if I were to serve it to company I would make a fruit sauce to go over top.

This worked well and looks and tastes great especially when served with stewed fruit. I used 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 yoghurt as I was low on milk. Cooking time was spot on too.
