Today is the day to celebrate the humble milk tart! Inspired by the Dutch and perfected by South Africans from all walks of life, through generations - there's nothing better than a slice of homemade milk tart.
The bakeries at retailers have tried, and many times failed to recreate that homemade taste that you can only get from baking a milk tart in your own kitchen. This is why choosing a store bought milk tart is a risk on a good day.
But the milk tart has not escaped change and adaptation. Last year, as part of a Heritage Day promotion Burger King launched a limited edition Milktart Milkshake. Six months later it's still on the menu and for good reason.
This milkshake is pretty good, and I wasn't expecting to like it. I was expecting a sickly, sweet, syrup mixed with milk that would make anyone's stomach turn. What I tasted was a burst of cinnamon and milky goodness.
