Crustless Milk Tart, A Recipe From Karoo Food

According to Gordon Wright this recipe for crustless milk tart is as old as the hills. It was originally meant to be cooked in an old Dutch oven, or over the coals. I have increased the baking time from the original so that it was more set.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Crustless Milk Tart ♥

I am usually very good at paying attention to things around me. And I am meticulous with my possessions. Last year I joined the iPhone brigade and moved away from BlackBerry. Before I even took the phone out of the box I purchased a glass screen protector. I also purchased a cover that is meant to protect the phone if it gets dropped. 17 months later my phone was still in pristine condition. I listen to podcasts while at gym and carry my phone around with me. As I have a bluetooth headset my phone is not connected to me in any way. I placed it very carefully beneath the bench I was using. And lowered the bench, right onto my phone! I did not even realize I had done so. It was only when I was done training that I tried to lift my phone.

And discovered that I had stupidly squashed it. The cover only has a slight dent in it. But the glass protector was totally damaged and the screen needs replacing. I also crushed the camera, a crucial bit of kit for a food blogger. The cost to repair the phone was exorbitant and Dave kindly offered me his upgrade. It meant I got a brand new phone, but I am paying for two contracts. Not something I had planned for to say the least. I had however planned to share this recipe for crustless milk tart ages ago! Somehow between writing the review of Karoo Food and now it slipped my mind. This is a recipe I would most certainly make again, and if you have not tried it, I urge you too. So tell me, have you ever smashed your cell phone?

  1. I dropped my phone and damaged it one day when I walked into Spar and got knocked over by robbers fleeing a store hold up. I was lucky I wasn’t shot at. Lovely recipe, Tandy.

  4. Oh ouch, too bad about the phone. I made a similar mistake when I looked over a ledge and forgot my phone was in my pocket.
    I’ve not made a milk tart, but it sounds very good. You’re going to have me baking yet.

  5. I have not ever smashed my cell phone (knock wood) and read your story in horror, Tandy! My husband however dropped a (fortunately company) cell phone through the ice on a (mostly) frozen lake, and my mother washed my stepfather’s in the washing machine. Now do you feel better?

    Your tart looks amazing–I am going to try to find time to make it before I finalize my Thanksgiving pie selections!
