Milk Tart

A sweet friend of mine is expecting her fourth little blessing - a baby girl! So we decided to gather together and celebrate this new little life that will soon arrive and of course...have some tea and cake...

This recipe is another my mom has been making for years and is a favourite of my dads!

1 liter of milk - full cream
125gr butter
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
300ml milk - full cream
250ml cornflour
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
Ground cinnamon

Bring the liter of milk, butter, salt and sugar to the boil.
In a bowl whisk together the 300ml milk, eggs, cornflour and vanilla.
Once the milk mixture is boiling add the egg mixture and whisk continuously until thickened.
Don't stop whisking as this mixture can lump very quickly
Once it is nice and thick - not to thick...
Pour into a pie dish that has been lined with tennis biscuits.
(Approx 23cm x 23cm in size)
Smooth the top with a knife and dust with ground cinnamon.

Enjoy with some special I did!!
