We all like dessert, but melktert is arguably the one that South Africans like the most. This creamy custard pie with cinnamon is one of our most famous dishes, but we believe it requires a makeover. We want to retain the flavour yet give the party a fun touch. If you’re not accustomed to preparing your own custard, these small melktert cups are simple to prepare and taste just as good.
Mini melktert cups tips
Remember, store-bought buttery puff pastry is still delicious. These cups will be par baked, and if you don’t want the bottom to puff up too much, weigh them down with rice or sugar. To create the custard, you may either use a microwave or a double boiler. Not only should you sprinkle them with cinnamon, but you can also sprinkle them with cocoa powder or chocolate chips to make them seem more festive.
