Baked custard raspberry tart

Baked raspberry custard tartThe Hungry Dad and his custard addiction is a well-known to everyone who knows us. He loves pouring custard, custard tart, custard-centred doughnuts, pouring custard poured on all on the above…

So when we were invited a friend’s house for dinner recently I decided to experiment with a baked custard tart dessert with raspberries. To make it healthy, of course 😉 I keep bags of frozen raspberries on hand as Miss 11 loves them in smoothies and sometimes just for a snack. Whenever I bake with berries it is usually the frozen kind as they are much cheaper than the fresh variety. I always leave them frozen, too – just plop them int the recipe and away I go.

This tart – along with a custard cake made by Miss 13, fudge made by Miss 11, and chocolate ice cream (also made by Miss 11) – went down a treat. I don’t usually eat dessert – and having inhaled a vast quantity of the cheese board pre-dinner – was extremely full but still managed a slice. In the name of research, you understand. It was lovely, the perfect combination of indulgent without being overly rich. I served it cold but I will try serving warm next time. I reckon it will be just as delicious.
