Yield: 9″ tart

This Gypsy Tart is an old English traditional recipe. It’s sweet, rich, creamy, and one of the most quickest and easiest recipes too, with just two ingredients for the filling.


  • 1 sweet shortcrust pastry case
  • 1 (410g) tin evaporated milk, chilled
  • 15oz brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to the lowest heat setting.
  2. Whisk the chilled evaporated milk with the sugar for at least 10 minutes until pale and bubbly. Don’t be temped to stop at the first signs of bubbles, it needs to whisk for at least 10-15 minutes.
  3. Pour in the pastry case and place in the centre of the [warm, not hot] oven, and leave to set for around 10 minutes.
  4. Check that the tart has set by slightly tipping the dish. If it doesn’t move, it is ready. Place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes if it moves.
  5. Serve immediately, or allow to cool then transfer to the fridge.
