Who doesn't love a custard tart? There's something rather nice about that "just set" cold custard with a hint of nutmeg running through it!

I've been asked " how will I know when my tart has set?"

My answer is, when you gently shake your tart, and you see a gentle wobble, your tart is ready!!

But realistically all Eggs will behave differently and have slightly different strengths, I've tried to give a recipe that will set without any problems, but if your tart seems to be still liquid, just continue to cook, checking at regular intervals

This recipe will make a 20cm tart, serving 8-10 people


  1. 225g plain flour

  2. Pinch of salt

  3. 150g of cold butter

  4. 75g of icing sugar

  5. 1 egg yolk

  6. 1 whole egg

  7. 1 teaspoon of grated nutmeg


  1. 500ml whipping cream

  2. 75g of caster sugar

  3. 8 egg yolks
