Custard Tart


Once more, I am going to assume that for this Custard Tart, you have premade the Shortcrust Pastry base using the recipe in the "Pastry" section of this website.

4 eggs, lightly beaten

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Shortcrust Pastry base


To make the custard, mix together the eggs, vanilla essence and sugar.

Bring the milk to the boil, remove from the heat and gradually pour onto the egg mixture.

Place the pie plate on a baking tray, strain the egg mixture into the pastry case and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until just set in the centre. Allow to cool, and serve cut into wedges.
