Asparagus Tart

My late grandmother was an incredible cook and baker. My mom learned from her and also went to train as a Cordon Bleu chef – amongst some of my mom’s incredible talents and accolades. My sister and I have learned from both my gran and my mom and I absolutely adore cooking – I just never get as much time to do so, but I’m cooking more often now and really getting into it.

I have always loved baking – it’s something I think I inherited from my grandmother. She used to bake endlessly and always said she wished she could open up a bakery or bake for home industries. 

This is one of my favourite savoury recipes. It’s so easy to do, it bakes for 30 minutes and is delicious for lunch.

ASPARAGUS TART ( a recipe passed on from Gran) 

Pie crust:

1 cup Sasko cake flour (250ml)
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons boiling water

Mix all ingredients and press into a pie dish. 

You may need to add an extra tablespoon of melted butter and boiling water – make sure the pastry isn’t too liquid – it must still be crumbly, yet press into the pie dish.


4 level tablespoons Sasko Cake flour
4 tablespoons melted butter
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 tin of drained asparagus pieces
Juice from 1 tin of asparagus
1 egg
Half cup grated cheese

Mix the melted butter into Sasko Cake Flour and add salt. 

Add enough milk to the asparagus juice to make up 1 cup.

Add the milky asparagus juice to the flour and butter mixture and boil the mixture until thick. Don’t stop stirring. You don’t want the mixture to burn or stick.

Beat in 1 egg and then add the drained asparagus, pepper and the cheese.

Pour into the crust and sprinkle with more grated cheese.

Bake 180 C for about 30 mins
