Tea Leaf Tart or Fudge Tart.

I've just made a tea leaf tart. Remember what we used to have if you had school dinners?? It was accompanied by chocolate sauce (hot chocolate blancmange). Some people used to call it fudge tart. Well here's the recipe!

1/2 a pint of milk
2oz  (50g) marg
2oz (50g) sugar
1 and a 1/4 oz (38g) plain flour
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
Chocolate to grate

In a saucepan put the milk and marg, heat until the marg melts, then add the vanilla essence. Add the flour and sugar and stirring all the time, bring to the boil while it thickens. Pour the mixture into a ready made sweet pastry case - I bought one from Sainsburys, of course you could always make a 7 inch one yourself, but I couldn't be bothered with the hassle. 
When it's cold, grate chocolate on the top and put in the fridge. YUMMY!


  1. Yummy Roz!!! You going to do one for me and Mark? WE are hoping to pop in to see you next Friday!! (17th!)

  2. I have been trying to find the recipe for years, it was a staple of our school dinners at Sawtry for years.


Thank you SO much for leaving a message, it's much appreciated.
Love Roz
