Sweet treats!

Portuguese custard tarts

By Philipp Ertl from Exceedingly Vegan (www.exceedinglyvegan.com)

Makes 12 tarts | Prep 10 mins | Cook 25 mins | Calories 178 (per tart)

FOR THE CUSTARD

200ml (7fl oz) plant-based milk (soy, almond, etc)

75g (2¾oz) icing sugar

25g (1oz) cornflour

3 tsp vanilla essence

200g (7oz) full-fat coconut milk (roughly ½ a tin)

FOR THE PASTRY

1 roll of vegan puff pastry

1 tsp cinnamon

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.

2 Add all the custard ingredients to a pan (apart from the coconut milk) and mix well with a whisk so that there are no lumps.

3 Heat up the mixture over a stove at medium to high temperature and stir constantly to make sure it doesn’t burn. Add the coconut milk (roughly half a 400ml (14fl oz) tin) and mix in.

4 After a while the cornflour will change consistency and begin to thicken the mix. Keep stirring until you get a custard-like consistency. (If you want to get a bit more of the yellow custard colour, then add a tiny bit of turmeric, just a very, very small amount to add colour and not for taste.) Set aside and let cool down completely, otherwise it might boil over when baked.

5 Roll out a puff pastry sheet (most of them are vegan) and then tightly roll in the long side again. Cut into halves and then divide the halves again. Finally, cut each into thirds.

6 Push each piece down with either your fingers or your palm to flatten them. Add to a muffin tin and push up the sides so you get nice little baskets. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on them.

7 Spoon the custard into each of the tarts – the custard will have set by now, but it doesn’t matter, it’s going to melt again when baked and will look more even.

8 Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

9 Let cool down and sprinkle icing sugar on top or serve warm.
