TRADITIONAL MELKTERT



Traditional Melktert image

This is the real old fashioned traditional South African Melktert, quite delicious, and rightly one of our favourite treats. There are many of these recipes on the web, adjusted in various ways, and with many ingredients added which were not available when this recipe was first created. These can make the finished tart something quite different from the original. There are also many recipes available that do not contain cinnamon, which may be a personal preference, but is definitely NOT traditional! It is very important to keep the pastry short, and to pre-bake it, so that the creamy filling does not make it soggy. I use honey in my filling, because it is more nutritious than sugar, and healthier, (and I think the settlers may well have used it, not sugar) but if you hate honey, you could substitute 80 - 100g sugar, to taste.

Categories     Dessert

Time 45m

Yield 1 tart, 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

150 g cake flour
90 g raw brown sugar
90 g butter
1 large egg
600 ml whole milk
1 cinnamon stick, whole
1 vanilla pod, split
60 ml raw honey (to taste)
1 1/2 tablespoons cake flour
1 1/2 tablespoons cornflour
30 g butter
2 large eggs

Steps:

  • METHOD.
  • First bake the pastry base, and allow it to cool. If the base is filled before it is cool, it will go soggy.
  • PASTRY BASE.
  • Mix the butter and sugar vigorously until it is light in colour. It does not have to be smooth, the grainy texture of the sugar helps the crust to be more like biscuit than cake.
  • Add the egg and beat well.
  • Add the flour and beat until well blended and smooth.
  • Press into a spring-form cake tin or loose-bottom tin, making sure that the pastry comes at least 4cms (1 1/2 inches) up the side of the tin.
  • Bake at 180degC for 25mins. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • FILLING.
  • Put the milk, cinnamon stick, vanilla pod and butter into a saucepan and scald. (bring almost to the boil before removing from the heat.) Turn off the heat and allow the saucepan to remain on the hot stove plate for the cinnamon and vanilla flavours to steep.
  • Meanwhile, put the honey (or sugar) and eggs into a bowl and whisk vigorously, adding small amounts of the flours until you have a smooth and well-blended consistency.
  • Strain the hot milk, and pour onto the sugar and egg mixture while beating until all the ingredients are well blended.
  • Return to the saucepan, and simmer over a low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or wire whisk until the mixture is thick and creamy, taking care that it does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared and cooled pastry case, (which should still be in the tin), sprinkle lightly with ground cinnamon, and refrigerate until cold and set.

  • Traditional South African Vetkoek. I doubt there is a South African out there who does not know what a vetkoek is. For generations, South Africans have been making vetkoek at home.
  • Malva Pudding. This traditional South African dessert is super sweet and buttery. Made with a fair amount of sugar, apricot jam and a pouring cream sauce, this baked sponge delight has been on the dessert menu of many homes and South African restaurants.
  • Chutney and Mayo Oven Baked Chicken. If you’re after an easy mid-week dinner then Sweet and Sticky Chutney and Mayo oven-bake Chicken is it. Simply combine Olive oil, Chutney, Mayonnaise, and garlic with either chicken thighs or drumsticks and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked.
  • Bobotie. Hearty South African Bobotie is a cooked sweet curry mince topped with an egg custard. Early recipes incorporated ginger, marjoram, and lemon rind; but the addition of curry powder has somewhat simplified this recipe.
  • Beskuit (Rusks) I have oodles of memories of chomping away at rusks. My late gran was fond of baking and as a result her pantry was always plentiful of baked goods such as biscuits and rusks.
  • Biltong. Biltong is a form of dried, cured meat made from a variety of meat types. Cuts from beef to game meats such as ostrich or kudu are typically used.
  • Butternut Soup. Not only does butternut soup look good, but it delivers on taste as well. If made correctly it will be thick, creamy and utterly delicious.
  • Koeksisters. This list of “12 Traditional South African Recipes You Should Try” will not be complete without the inclusion of koeksisters! It can be a lot of work, however, I recently found the opposite when I attempted it myself.
  • Braaibroodjies. No, it’s not a grilled cheese, or a toasted sandwich. It’s more than that. It’s a sandwich filled with your favourite fillings, placed on a hot braai and then braaied until perfection.
  • Outydse Soetkoekies. My late gran spent a lot of her time in the kitchen. She was old school, she baked bread, milktart and spent a tremendous amount of time in the kitchen baking cookies for her grandchildren who would visit during the summer holidays.
