Milk Tart Cupcakes


My dad came home with the most delicious milk tart cupcakes from Spar a while ago and everyone in this house keeps talking about how amazing they were.  It was my boyfriend’s birthday last week and he asked if I could make a homemade version of those delights for him.  I couldn’t find any recipes for these sweet treats so I combined two recipes to make my very own one.  Here’s how I did it!

To make the cupcakes: (Makes 12 cupcakes)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
140g margarine
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
¾ cup milk
1 ¾ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1.      Cream margarine and sugar together.
2.      Add eggs and mix well.
3.      Add flour, milk and vanilla essence alternatively.
4.      Add baking powder, mix well and spoon into patty pans.
5.      Bake for ten minutes.
6.      Once baked to cool completely.  After cooling, use a knife to cut a small circle in the top of the cupcakes and hollow it just over half way down.

To make the milk tart filling:
4 ½ cups milk
1 cup sugar
3 beaten eggs
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1.      Pour the milk into a medium sized pot and add the sugar.  Bring the mixture to boil over a low heat, stirring frequently.  (This takes quite a while to do but don’t be tempted to turn up the heat too high because you will end up with curdled milk and need to start again.)
2.      Beat together the eggs, flour and corn starch.  Mix well so that there are no lumps in the mixture.
3.      Once the milk has boiled, pour it into the egg mixture while stirring.  Once blended, pour the whole mixture back into the pot.  Place it on the stove at a medium-low heat and stir until the mixture thickens.  Remove the pot from the heat and add the margarine and vanilla.  Stir well until the margarine has completely melted.
4.      Spoon the mixture into the hollowed cupcakes until each has a nice peak.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and leave in the fridge to set, preferably overnight.

Happy Monday
