Was busy in the kitchen today making a few things for the kids, we all love these Portuguese custard tarts, but find the the shop bought one are very sweet, so we make our own using whipping cream instead of milk and using just enough sugar to sweeten it a bit..to save a lot of time we buy the readymade puff pastry cups frozen, there really very good. Results I think is far better then what can buy..lovely 😊
Something for the kids.: Was busy in the... - Healthy Eating
I just love Portuguese custard tarts but I've had to stop eating them as I have an intolerance to lactose and whilst I would normally not be too bad if I eat one, I just can't stop at one as I find them very moreish, but then of course, I end up with stomach ache. 🙁
I can't just have one either, they are very moreish😋 I think it would work very well if we used coconut cream instead of milk or cream. Must give it a try next time we make some more.👍😊
Same as me, always have to have at least 2 of every treat then suffer for it later😩
Ooh I know the feeling well BT and it's just not fair - we don't get many pleasures in this life! ☹
That's true, I've given up all of my guilty pleasures 😔
But I lie because there's always the nuttela and the spoon🙈
Did I hear someone say Nutella👂
Has to be you of course....... or me 😉
I think they would be very nice with using coconut cream to make the custard, I will give it a try next time we make some.😋
It does sound like a good idea😋(and after all you've got no shortage of coconuts) 👍
The one on the tree now are very small and the one that are fully mature, am keeping them until they sprout, the water turns into a white creamy sponge that I really like.I can buy fresh coconut water from the market and let in stand in the fridge for an hour and the cream will separate from the water..perfect 😁
We tried using sweeteners instead of sugar for baking cakes and cookies but the results weren't as good as using sugar, so we gone bake to using sugar keeping it as low as possible, brownies are about the only thing we been making for a long time so we all hot used to the reduced sugar content and really enjoy them, there still plenty sweet enough. 😊
This was my reward for helping to make them 😁
Mmm the brownie for me😋
All of it for me! 😂😂
Stop fighting you two... THERE MINE
