Demerara, evap/condensed milk

Thread Starter: kirstyb00    Started: Wed 03 Aug 2005    Replies: 8

Can anyone suggest a recipe using condensed/evaporated milk and demerara sugar? I always thought it would be an interesting combo for a pudding! Other ingredients are not a problem, I can buy them, I was just wondering!

Hi Mosey.
Gypsy Tart - Mum's recipe
14oz tin evaporated milk
12oz dark Muscovado sugar [most recipes say you must used this sugar]
10'' ready baked pastry case.

Whisk evap. milk and sugar for 10 minutes till light and fluffy and coffee coloured. Pour into pastry case and cook for 10 minutes. The top will look a bit sticky but it will set when cold. Eat cold a.s.a.p. Smile

I hate to say guys, the Gipsy Tart was a complete disaster. I didn't whisk the mixture for long enough, so the tart was grainy from the sugar. Oh well, I'll have another try this weekend! I'm having a cooking weekend!
