Hey Sand Stars!

I’m super excited to be working on WONDERFUL projects in the realm of music and my other passions. However, I had to make time to do some Eid baking as the Muslim festival of Eid-al-Fitr is this week!

One of my favourite childhood treats was Hungarian Tart, which Momma Littlepianodiva would often make for us to have with our tea- we felt so posh! šŸ™‚



Hungarian Tart

Here is the recipe I used:

2 tblspn castor sugar

125g butter

1 beaten egg

2 tbsp cooking oil

Half tsp vanilla

2 tsp baking powder

2 cups flour

Apricot/strawberry jam for spreading


Icing sugar

Cream the sugar and butter, then add cooking oil and vanilla essence. Beat the mixture well and slowly stir in the beaten egg. Sift the flour and baking powder. Knead the mixture into a dough and divide into two portions. Lay the first portion in a greased cake tin and prick with a fork. Spread jam liberally across the top of the dough and grate the second portion of dough on top. Dust cinnamon powder on top, just before baking for about 30 minutes in the oven, at 180 degrees Celsius. When baked, dust icing sugar on top and cut the tart into squares whilst hot. Serve by itself or with vanilla cream or custard.

Bon appetit!

Live, Love & Laugh!
