Chocolate Drizzled Milktart Squares

With A Blast: Chocolate Drizzled Milktart Squares  {a traditional South-African dessert with a different coat}  #dessert #milktart #southafrican #sweettreats

Milktart is South-Africa and South-Africa is Milktart !  The traditional Milktart, of course, is a bit different than the recipe which I am sharing today.

Most Milktart recipes are exactly that - a tart in a crust, with a softer, creamier filling. I think it is one of the most loved, and economical tarts in our country. There is a lot of different versions but the basics are the same - Milk filling with Cinnamon sprinkled over {sometimes Cinnamon Sugar}

I like small sweet treats which you can eat by hand and this is perfect to place on a sweet platter. Still soft and creamy, but with a denser texture.

Hope you will make a batch and enjoy my version!


24 - 30 Squares

4 Eggs, separated
1 cup Sugar
3 TB Butter, melted
1 1/4 cup Self-Raising Flour
4 cups Milk
1/2 t Ground Cinnamon
2 TB White Chocolate, to drizzle over

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 160 deg C (325 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm oven pie dish with cooking oil.
2.) Beat the Egg Yolks and Sugar together in a large mixing bowl until creamy - add the melted Butter - beat again to combine.
3.) Add the Flour to the Egg mixture - mix - add the Milk and beat until smooth.
4.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff peaks form - fold gently into the Milk mixture.
5.) Pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish - sprinkle the Cinnamon over - bake for 1 1/4 hours until dark brown on top and set.  {the Cinnamon gives it a darker color on top but do watch it as well}
6.) Remove from the oven and let cool completely {it will still feel a little soft, but will set further while cooling}.
7.) Cut into small squares and drizzle with White Chocolate.

Transfer to a serving tray and serve !  These will disappear very quickly, that's a promise ;-)
