    • Must be a regional thing then, Jess. It’s so easy though, just make sure you whisk that milk and sugar for agggeeesss! πŸ˜† If you do make it, let me know how it turns out.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  1. I have never heard of it before, but looks and sounds delicious! I will definitely giving it a try as I still have several evaporated milk cans in my pantry πŸ˜‰
    love, rebecca

    • Thanks chica. If you do give it a shot, do let me know how it turns out, and if you like it. πŸ™‚

      A British baker with not so many British recipes, it’s shameful! πŸ˜† So I’ll be making more British classics soon.

    • You this reminds me of school dinners, we had gypsy tart about once a month an I Loved it, along with tiramisu this has got to be my fall time favourite ….. thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to make it now xx!

  2. Used to be the HIGHLIGHT of the week at our Kent school for pudding back in the day! Probably would fail nutritional standards nowadays… LUVVERLY!! Making it for a Christmas extra this year – so easy. Everyone enjoy! X

  3. omg thx i love me some gypsy tart but finding one pre-made is near on impossible thx for sharing the recipe though i shall add choco sprinkles on top when its done XD

  4. Awesome, its a traditional Kentish dessert, particularly isle of sheppy I think. But anyway can’t wait to try this recipe. Who doesn’t love a gypsy tart πŸ˜‰

  5. Born and bred in Kent, this was a regular in school, it was and still is my favourite pudding.
    Very easy to make but needs to be whisked for about 15 mins until very very thick or will separate in the oven.
    Can be bought in some baker’s in Kent.

  6. I was at Mundella grammar school in Nottingham between 1954 and 1959 and this pudding was served on school meals as a treat

  7. I was brought up in Kent and it was a staple at school – not allowed now, too much sugar – it originated on Isle of Sheppey. A well made gypsy tart is delicious, if badly made it is disgusting, needs thin crisp pastry , the addition of fresh raspberries and cream makes it even better!

  8. This was served for school dinners at primary school. I loved it. That was in Suffolk so not far from Kent. Might have to have a go at making one .
