Custard Tart


Presenting (drum roll please) the Custard Tart!

I'm always keen for anything delicious, easy to make and cheap!  I love the simpleness of this recipe and the fact that most of the ingredients are usually on hand.  This tart can be made in a pie dish, a flan ring or even miniature versions in muffin tins.  Add freshly whipped cream and it is divine!


Recipe thanks to the trusty Edmonds Cookery Book.

Custard Tart 
Serves 4-6

Ingredients
200g Sweet Shortcrust Pastry
2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar

Method 
On a lightly floured board roll out pastry and use to line a 20cm pie plate for flan ring.  Do not prick the pastry. Bake blind at 200°C for 15 minutes. Remove baking blind material and then return pastry shell to oven for 1 minute to dry out pastry base.  Reduce oven temperature to 180°C. Carefully pour filling into prepared base. Sprinkle with nutmeg.  Return to oven and continue to cook for 20 minutes or until custard is set.

Filling
In a saucepan, whisk together eggs, milk and sugar.  Cook, stirring, until almost boiling.

Enjoy!!!

  10. Hey emerson-j! No, it doesn't have custard powder because the real way to make custard is just with eggs and milk!

    p.s. I only just found this out recently too!!
