Eggless milktart

I love milktart… but I always tend to have milktart cravings during the fasting periods… and it used to make me suffer in silence… but not until I found an eggless milktart in a Sai Baba recipe book.

Since then I have never looked back.


Ingredients for the base:

  • 1 x cup cake flour.
  • 1 ½ x tsp baking powder.
  • 5g x rama margarine.
  • 2 x tbsp castor sugar.
  • 4 x tbsp milk.

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 2 ½ x cup milk.
  • 2 x tbsp. ordinary white sugar.
  • 1 x tsp of margarine.
  • Mix this in a bowl and keep aside (4 x tbsp. maizena mixed with ½ x cup milk and 1 tsp vanilla essence).

Method for the base:

  • Cream the margarine and the castor sugar together.
  • Add the sifted cake flour and baking powder.
  • Add the milk little by little, till the dough comes together. Knead till nice and smooth.
  • Roll out onto a floured surface and line a greased pie dish with the pastry and using a fork prick the base.

Method for the filling:

  • Boil the milk, castor sugar and margarine together till it starts to bubble.
  • Add the mixture in the bowl to the boiling milk and allow to cook till it starts to thicken.
  • Remove from heat and pour over the pastry base.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon powder over the top and pop into a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes or until the filling is firm to touch.
