This melktert recipe is one of South Africa's most traditional sweet pie recipes. Melktert or milk tart, as with this classic Amarula Dom Pedro recipe, is one of the most copied creations in South Africa's culinary history and is famous worldwide. Melktert originated in the Cape of Good Hope and the sweet and cinnamon flavours were introduced by the Cape Malay people.
Melktert is traditionally served with tea or as a dessert. It is quick and easy to prepare and a great way to round a full-course meal off. One can be certain that most families in South Africa will have a unique copy of a melktert recipe in the collection of their favourite recipes. It is unlikely to visit friends or family without being offered a slice of melktert. It is a well-celebrated tradition and many great stories are shared while sitting around and sharing melktert together.
