My hubby’s favourite dessert is custard tart. So I have been playing about with a more nutritious recipe. This one is awesome – as you don’t need to be a pastry whizz. There is no need for rolling out pastry, so put that rolling pin away.
This grain free custard tart is quick, easy and very delicious ! I hope it becomes a family favourite like it is in our house.
