Milk tart also known as melktert is basically a cinnamon and vanilla flavored pudding/ custard tart that’s popular in South Africa but also in Namibia. Just like malva pudding you’ll find it on almost every restaurant/ lodge Menu countrywide.

This melk tert recipe is unbelievably easy to make, uses simple ingredients and tastes amazing. Made up of a beautifully crumbly pie crust that’s blind baked and filled with (unbaked) custard/ pudding with a great hint of vanilla and cinnamon, then chilled and dusted with cinnamon before serving.

A must have recipe for creamy dessert lovers!!
