Old School Custard Tart
Time: 45 mins
4 egg yolks,
1 cup of cream + 1/2 cup of whole milk,
1/2 vanilla pod, or 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
1/2 nutmeg seed, or use 1 tsp ground
1/4 cup of caster sugar, + extra to sprinkle on top afterwards,
Pinch of salt
Cube of butter (optional)
Pre-baked shortcrust shell or (feel free to make your own of course!
You’ll also need a mixing bowl, whisk and some measuring cups too.
Preheat oven to 160C (320F)
Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins. Check part way to see if the crust is browning too quickly (sadly, I neglected mine and it burnt!) once the time is up, rest the tart in the oven for 5 mins after and finish with a little more nutmeg and sprinkle of sugar too.
