A velvety chocolate custard on a layer of coconut biscuits, dusted with cinnamon. Nom nom! Milk tart has just become sexy! This will be the easiest milk tart you will ever make. Made this over the weekend and it was a hit.

You will need:


1 tin condensed milk

750 ml milk

45 ml corn flour

60 ml(1/4 cup) cocoa powder

5 ml vanilla essence

2 eggs

45 ml butter

1 packet of coconut/tennis biscuits

Cinnamon for dusting

Reserve 125 ml of the milk and add the rest of the milk together with the condensed milk to a medium saucepan and gently heat until hot and steaming – not boiling.

While the milk is heating, combine the reserved milk, corn flour, cocoa, essence and eggs. Slowly(I mean, slowly – or you will have scrambled eggs!) add this mixture to the hot milk, whisking over moderate heat until thickened(should take no more than 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and stir in the butter.

Place a layer of biscuits into a greased tart dish. Spoon the hot custard over the biscuits and dust with cinnamon.

Allow to stand at room temperature to set for about 45 minutes to an hour or chill in the fridge.

Best served at room temperature with good coffee.

Enjoy the rest of your week peeps!

P.s. As you may have noticed, my blogging has been a tad erratic but soon again you will have regular posts from yours truly.

And, I dedicate this post to Keyna – an awesome graphic designer/arty friend of mine for taking out some of her precious time to create my new logo! Thanks K! Check out her blog

Hopefully my official Bitsofcarey blogsite will be up and running shortly after we get back from our Euro trip in July. Hold thumbs!

    It sounds delicious. I swop the condensed milk for caramel. Caramel milk tart is also good.

    Hi Carey, I made this milktart on Saturday afternoon for dessert. Because it was already dark after I finished I did not take any pics,wanted to take some photies yesterday. Hubs and I went to the Good Food and Wine Show,and guess what when we came home my son and daughter finished the tart!!! 🙁 Guess I will just have to make it again, next weekend!! It is really very yummy!

    Mine didn’t set… It turn out to be a milkshake with biscuits on top. What went wrong????

    • bitsofcarey

      mmm…that’s strange! All I can think is that maybe the corn flour and egg mixture wasn’t cooked through or thickened enough before pouring it out to set. Thanks for giving it a bash!
