Milo Milk Tart
Serves 6-8 • Prep 20 mins • Cooking 40 mins
A fun and super delicious tart to make for the Milo lovers in your life. This isn’t hard at all but does require resting and chill time so is easiest to make the day before you plan to serve.
Allow 4 hours chill time in the fridge.
What you’ll need
1 ½ cups The Healthy Baker Plain Flour
½ cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
150g butter, chilled and cubed
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoons water, ice cold
2 tablespoons milo
For the filling
350ml thickened cream
3 eggs beaten
¼ cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
3 tablespoons cornflour
200g milk chocolate
½ cup milo
Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, egg yolk and milo in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times.
Add the butter and iced water and pulse again until the dough has a sandy texture and is just beginning to come together.
Turn out onto a work surface and bring together with the heel of your hand, don’t overwork it though, you should still be able to see small pieces of butter in the dough.
Press dough into a disc shape, about 4cm thick, wrap with plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or freeze for up to one month.
Preheat oven to 200C and blind bake the shell for 15 minutes, remove pastry weights and baking paper and bake for another 15 minutes until the pastry has dried out completely. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
Meanwhile make up the filling. Place cream, milk, milo and vanilla in a saucepan and whisk to combine. Bring to the boil, whisking until the milo has dissolved into the hot cream/milk mixture.
Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour together until pale and frothy.
Whisk hot milk mixture into the egg yolks.
Clean saucepan, pour in the hot egg/milk mixture and return to a low heat.
Cool, stirring constantly for 5 minutes until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat, whisk in the milk chocolate, stirring until it melts completely. Place this custard in the fridge to cool completely.
Once the custard and tart shell are both completely cool, spoon the custard into the shell. Top with a little extra whipped cream and sprinkle with extra Milo. Return to the fridge for a few hours to firm up before serving.
