Here is a little secret, if a South African ever makes you a Milk Tart - you immediately know that you did something super amazing or special for them. So it would come as no surprise why we are putting this recipe in-front of the judges for the final heat. To thank them for all the effort they put into the judging to make this whole Mix-Off a reality. Thanks guys!

As dangerous as a South African might sound behind the oven, when it comes to Milk Tart - it is at the very centre of the South African culture. We know exactly what a Original Milk Tart should taste like, and in this challenge we wanted to showcase this awesome local delicacy - and how team work done correctly, can really pay off in authenticity.

Good ol' melktert the Afrikaans name for 'milk tart'; the classic, South African dessert consisting of a sweet pastry crust, filled with a mild, creamy custard of milk, flour, sugar and eggs, baked in a round pie tin and dusted with cinnamon after baking.

This sweet pastry is omnipresent in South Africa; it appears at every church bazaar, bake sale, home industry, supermarket, or bakery, and has surely featured on every South African food blogger's blog - and even on International Chef Sensation Jamie Oliver's Instagram.

Milk Tart Casing Layer
Considering the flavour house limitation in this round - we decided to use FA Cookie + CAP Golden butter to create a soft buttery pastry, that would allow a delicate creamy custard filling to shine without bullying it.

Milk Tart Filling Layer
This was not an easy filling to create, we really needed to work together as a team to find the correct balance and ingredients for this filling. FA Custard Premium was unanimously chosen to add the buttery custard notes, without bringing a hard vanilla note. FLV Cream & TFA Dairy Cream were used together to add a bit more depth to the custard, and help sell that thick creamy dairy note that a classic Milk Tart would have. We used FA Meringue for its delicious eggy notes - and used it low, to make this recipe Ultra Realistic.

Cinnamon Dust Layer
We used FLV Rich Cinnamon in a PG dilution (10%) as our spice note - like any good Milk Tart, its dusted off with a fine cinnamon - just enough to showcase that classic cream & cinnamon pairing.

The FLV Rich Cinnamon Dilution
1ml FLV Rich Cinnamon = 1.00g
9ml PG = 9.33g

I adore this recipe. It's light yet flavourful. Creamy and accurate milky custard with a slight dusting of cinnamon. Nice and low flavouring percentage so coils/wicks last forever. And just never gets old. Continuously coming back to it. Quickly became my favourite reliable mix. Thanks a million for creating this one.

I really enjoy this. I've never been to africa or had a milk tart so I cant speak to accuracy. That being said I would relate it quite closely to egg custard pie we have here in southern USA. Very enjoyable vape that I really enjoy with my evening cup of coffee.

Simply fantastic, it’s light and so carefully balanced I had to reduce the nicotine level in my second batch. Bravo!

I have never had a milk tart - but I have to say this mix is truly how I would imagine it would taste. The milk tart filling is amazing , I have never used TPA dairy milk so was not sure what to expect but that milky creamy filling is really just lovely . The diary milk note is so well done not overly eggy or custard forward,, just excellently balanced really impressed with that . For my personal taste I would like more separation with the pie crust I find it get lost after a 3 week steep and the creams really come forward. but that filling I will totally walk away with and USE for sure

Absolutely delicious, this is a Milk Tart Recipe with scary accuracy. Outstanding job from thefogvlog team. Well done on your win, and even more so on this recipe. Will be mixing it up by the litre.

This is just so comfortable to vape, it is a very well crafted, tasty and nicely balanced recipe. This tastes like as shown in the photo with some discernible separation of crust, filling and a light dusting of cinnamon. If using the 10% dilution there is room to go higher if you prefer more cinnamon which goes perfectly with this recipe. I will be vaping this watching the footy during the winter months to come for sure.
