    Default Wanted: A bazaar tannie

    I need to lay hold of a bazaar tannie that makes melktert the way it tasted back in the 70s when you proudly brought your prize back home from the church bazaar.

    If you have a granny or great granny that knows the secret, please contact me so I can go and visit her immediately with my notebook under the arm.

    If you have granny's cookbook I would still be all ears. I have tried a variety of recipes and none of them are quite there. I need to find THE ONE.

    I know it's out there. Please help me find it.

    I wonder if the ingredients havent changed, sugar substitutes etc. Will it ever be possible to have the tastes we used to like?

    Eish, not quite a Tannie but my Wife makes a mean Melktert from a recipe that was handed down from Ouma to Ma and now with her. There is actually a baked version as well that I'm not very fond off but I'll never tell them. She also makes a delicious Malva.

    You'll have to make the trip up to the Linyanti for the tase test...

    I'm also searching for proper melktert. I have tried quite a number of "The One" but I'm not satisfied.

    I think it comes down to the ingredients.

    Full cream milk. Even extra cream.
    Butter (not margarine)
    Enough eggs. (no artificial thickeners)

    Lets see that recipe!

    What has disappeared is the filo pastry, which ALL milktarts had that I grew up with. Possibly it was a regional thing of the West Coast (Lamberts Bay, Laaiplek, St Helena Bay) - but there is not a shop I know today that still sells those.

    So what has changed is not necessarily the filling, but the texture. It was like eating a croissant with a milk tart filling.

    However, you can still get boerbeskuit in the WC but not up here. So possibly one should import the original melktert from it's province of origin?
    If my post insulted you, wonder where the smiley went .

    I hear you wrt the pastry dough although I'm looking for the original taste of the filling. I am certain that its at least 25 years since the last proper milktart taste.

    Wife will kill me if I say she's an old tannie

    She has her grandmother's recipe, from Clocolan nogal.

    The issue is the ingredients...nothing is the same as '70's.
    We can get super fresh milk from our nearby Jersey cow farm, but the tools and effort to make the correct ingredients is too time consuming....the rat race has even caught up with us

    My gut feel says the first edition Huisgenoot Wenresepte should do the trick. But I imagine nothing can compensate for ingredients being different.

    Cannot help with the recipe, but the milk tart from the Irene Dairy farm is by far the best. My gran could bake pretty well, but her melktert didn't even approach the ballpark of this (IIRC it is tannie Burger se melktert).

    Or find tannie Burger and wring the recipe from her.

    Ai, wat sal ek gee vir my ma se melktert. Almal het die resep maar niemand maak dit soos sy nie.

    Miskien is die “missing ingredient” juis sy.

    Heres my mother's milk tart recipe, not sure where she got it from but if she were alive today she would be 96.
    Only the crust is baked.
    If the recipe doesnot have almond essence...yuk not a real melktert
    Enjoy
