Who can forget school dinners? Cold mashed potato and nasty, fish-flavoured stuff (was it even fish?). The only thing that made it worthwhile was the puddings. Sponge cake with pink icing, chocolate custard or, my favourite, Butterscotch Tart. For years I hunted high and low to find the recipe for Butterscotch Tart. I tried recipe after recipe to no avail. Until one day I perfected it! And because I'm a nice person I will share it with you. And you will love me. Forever.
I've made this twice already and okay, so I cheated a little I bought a sweet pastry case from the supermarkert and made half the volume of the butterscotch and it was sublime - one tip is to sift the flour into the pan a little at a time and stir well before adding more flour. - 01 Jun 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. I used pre-bought pastry case. The mixture definately would fill two of these! - 22 Feb 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. I used two medium eggs instead of one large egg, this made the tart sweeter - Verry yummy when finished! - 22 Jan 2011
