Making Milk Tart for World Baking Day

21 May 2013

 milk tart

So, I wrote about World Baking day on Friday and I am pleased to say the mission was accomplished.  It certainly was a challenge but I really can say the milk tart tasted fab and I would make it again.  I did have to re-do the pastry as I lined the tin too thick with the dough but you live and learn. Plus this is what baking brave is all about.  I also only made half the mixture the second time round as I didn't really want two milk tarts to tempt me!

I used the recipe provided by Dolce Bakery in Cape Town, however I did not freeze the pastry like the instructions said - mainly because I didn't really have the time or the patience.  It still turned out well though.

It didn't take long for the milk tart to set, which I was glad of because I could have a slice sooner that I thought I could.  I enjoyed it with a lovely cup of tea while I was writing my (third to last)assignment on Sunday.

You can see where Nikki also took part here - don't her cupcakes look amazing?

Happy Tuesday!
