South African Milktart

Yield: 8 slices
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 c. *cake flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 c. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9" deep pie plate. In large bowl, mix butter and sugar until smooth; add egg yolks. Add flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla and milk; mix.
  3. In separate bowl, whip egg whites until stiff; fold into batter. Pour into pie plate and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven, then reduce temperature to 325 degrees. Continue to bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set when the pie is jiggled. Refrigerate and serve cold (although you may try serving hot).
This is good comfort food, and a great way to use up milk that might soon go bad. *= 2 Tbsp. cornstarch and the rest of a cup of all-purpose flour may be substituted.
