For Christmas J's mom gave me the most thoughtful and beautiful gift. A note book in which she stuck in some of the families traditional recipes. From brown pudding to koeksisters and of course J's great gran's Melktert. The story is that this Milktart is so good, it was eaten in parliment.

That is why I am not giving you the recipe. I will put here a recipe for a milktart, just not THAT milktart...sorry but some secrets stay in the family :)

Nice recipe, Hila. I'm very intrigued when you wrote; "...For Christmas J's mom gave me the most thoughtful and beautiful gift. A note book in which she stuck in some of the families traditional recipes. From brown pudding to koeksisters and of course J's great gran's Melktert...."
Is there any link to the earlier dutch immigrants cooking? I would certainly love to hear more if there is!

One of my guilty pleasures is buying a delicious Melktert from Safari Meats, a delightful South African Meat Market and deli close to me.

Now  I need to find some good recipes for Bunny chows and Vetkoek
