Traditional South African milk tartlets recipe


  • 1 tin or 260 grams of canned pineapple
  • 2 packets of lemon or pineapple jelly
  • 1 tin of condensed milk
  • 2 packs of tennis biscuits
  • 1 large tin of ideal milk that is chilled in the fridge overnight

Preparation method

  1. Start by dissolving the jelly in 2 cups containing hot water and then allow it to cool or place it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
  2. Carefully take out the pineapple pieces off the tin and separate the juice. Dip the biscuits in the juice.
  3. Cut the pineapples into tiny pieces reserving the rest for garnish.
  4. Use a cold bowl to gently beat the chilled ideal milk until it gains the texture of a whammed cream. This step should take 1 minute when using an electric hand mixer.
  5. Add the cold jelly, condensed milk, and whisk to obtain a perfect combination.
  6. Now, fold the pineapple pieces.
  7. Dip the tennis biscuit inside the pineapple juice, one at a time. Layer them at the bottom of a deep dish or flat bowl.
  8. Pour half the pineapple mix and then spread it evenly and repeat the layering using the unused tennis biscuits dipped in the juice.
  9. Pour the rest of the pineapple mixture over the biscuits on the second layer and then spread it evenly.
  10. Place the mixture inside the fridge and allow it to settle for about 2 hours before piping with fresh cream. Note that leaving the pineapple fridge tart inside a refrigerator for longer than a day will cause it to start drying out. Also, ensure that you cover all the corners and that there is enough mixture for all the layers.
