Milk Custard Tart

Milk Custard Tart
Milk custard tart.

This tart has a fudgy base, a smooth custard centre and a spongy top layer. Magically it's all made with one batter, poured into a baking dish. When it comes out of the oven, it has these 3 completely different layers!

If you love vanilla sponge and custard, you're sure to love this milk custard tart too.


  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
  • Line a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff peaks form. It's very important to ensure you are using a clean bowl for this otherwise the egg whites won't foam up. Set aside.
  • Place the egg yolks and sugar into a separate bowl and beat until light and frothy.
  • With the beater on a low speed, slowly add the melted butter and vanilla essence.
  • Add a few spoons of flour at a time and gently incorporate.
  • Slowly add the milk, beating continually until it's all incorporated.
  • Using a spatula, fold in the egg whites 1/3 at a time. Be careful not to knock out the air - be gentle here.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for approximately 35minutes or until set on the top.
