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 πŸ˜‰

  1. OMG – my husband will go nuts for this!!! I used to buy him a milk tart just for himself at least once a week!!! We have a South African butcher/deli up the road from us and I only get their very expensive milk tart when SA visitors come over.
    So now I have to make your version Linda – I have no excuse!

  2. These look fantastic and I can only imagine the taste!
    I'm pretty sure they will be a hit with my family
    I'm saving the recipe πŸ™‚

  3. Linda,
    This looks so good. I've never hard milk tarts. They sound moist and custard like! I will be making them. Pinned and sharing on facebook.
    Thank you for sharing on Tuesday Trivia.
