Yeah, so I was right on time with my tart this time… Or at least with making all the parts, but then I decided to sit down on the sofa for a while while my tart crust was in the oven to bake. Big mistake!!! I fell asleep…. I only woke up because The Neighbour texted me. As soon as I realised that I had fallen asleep, I ran to the kitchen to check on my crust that was in the oven. Too late: it had already blackened and was of no use anymoren…. Not sure if I can fit in making a new crust today as I have to bake loads of cupcakes for my moms birthday. I promise my post about the Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart will go up later this week!!
This week Beryl of Cinemon Girl picked the recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie and she did an amazing job: she picked the luscious Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart. As soon as I saw the list of ingredients I simply knew I was going to love it: it’s basically a Pina Colada in tart-shape and my favorite Summer Cocktail is a Pina Colada.
Coconut reminds me of summer, so this was perfect to distract me from the dreary winter weather we’ve been having lately. The crust came together easy and I even managed not to burn it on my second attempt. The custard was equally effortless to make, although I did freak out at one point: I was whisking the custard, waiting for it to start cooking when all of the sudden it turned from liquid to looking curdled and then to almost solid….. But it still tasted great 🙂
