This pumpkin tart recipe is definitely for any sweet tooth. It can be served with almost any meal as a sweet side dish, or as a dessert. Be warned, after tasting this you will be hooked and will probably have to make it a lot.
- 1 cup of flour
- 750ml pumpkin (any sweet variety will work)
- 1/2 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of honey
- 1 cup cream/milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- a sprinkle of castor sugar
Cook the pumpkin in a pot with a little bit of water until it is soft. Don’t add anything else yet!
Mix all dry ingredients while waiting for the pumpkin to cook. Mix all liquids in a separate bowl. Now mix the dry and wet components, except for the pumpkin.
When the pumpkin is soft, mash the pumpkin and then mix it in with the other ingredients. Make sure the pumpkin is not too soggy, otherwise it will not set properly.
Heat the oven to 180°C. Grease an oven-safe glass dish and then spread the mixture into the dish. Sprinkle some castor sugar over the dish right before putting it into the oven – this will create a beautiful thin crust on top.
Bake the dish for ± 45 minutes, or until set and golden. Serve it while it is still hot for the best experience!
