Milk tart is a dessert loved by many South Africans. No wonder there are so many recipes and variations of this classic tart. To add to the numerous delicious recipes I have, created a crustless tart, thickened with semolina and generously dusted with cinnamon.

A few year back A friend and I created a tasty maize meal milk tart. So, this got me thinking... Why not create a tasty semolina tart that would double up as a dessert and breakfast. I mean who wouldn't want dessert for breakfast and breakfast for dessert?

This milk tart is a real winner. It is creamy, thick, rich and sweet; with a healthy dusting of cinnamon. This is for all my tart lovers who are looking for something easy and tasty to satisfy their tart cravings.
