Rooibos milk tart recipe

Whether you’re hosting book club or having a full-on family dinner, milk tart always seems to go down well. Try this South African favourite out with this simple recipe from Getaway.

Serves 8 – 10

Filling Ingredients

1.25 litres of milk

250ml of strong Laager Rooibos (made with four Rooibos teabags, left to brew in hot water)

2 tbsp. butter

4 tbsp. flour

2 tbsp. corn flour

125ml sugar

6 eggs

2 cinnamon sticks

Ground cinnamon

1 pre-baked pastry case

Filling Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, bring the milk, butter, Rooibos and cinnamon sticks to the boil. Then turn off the heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale and creamy, and then add the flour and cornflour. Strain the milk mixture, add to the egg mixture and pour into a saucepan.
  3. Cook over a low heat and keep stirring until it thickens (about 10 minutes).
  4. Pour the cooked mixture into a pastry base.
  5. Dust with ground cinnamon and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving with a drizzle of honey.

For the base of the milk tart, you can either buy puff pastry (which you’ll need to roll, arrange and then blind bake in the oven for 15 minutes) or make your own.

250g butter (cut into blocks)

Pinch of salt

100ml caster sugar

1 egg

190ml water

500g flour

Pastry Instructions

  1. Mix the flour and salt and rub the butter into the flour.
  2. Combine the egg and water and mix with the flour and butter.
  3. Mix into pastry and leave it in the fridge for an hour.
  4. Roll out and blind bake (cover with baking paper and fill with dry beans or rice) in a tart dish at 145°C for half an hour.
