I have decided to make an old favourite of mine Manchester Tart.We used to get this once every couple of weeks and it was made in huge trays.
. When I first started to look for the receipe I stumbled across a cookery book called Manchester Tart and other favourites. Another one to add to my collection :)
it's very easy to make, let me know if you decide to try it
1 pint milk
pre heat oven 190c Gas 5
grease 8inch / 20 cm pie dish. Line the tin with pastry making sure it comes up the sides. Prick all over and cover with foil pushing it into the corners. Bake for 20 mins, remove foil and bake for 5 more mins. Leave to cool
Spread jam over the base. Slice bananas and place on top of jam. Then make up a thick custard (about 2 heaped tablespoons of powder to 1 pint of milk) When the custard has cooled a bit pour it over the sliced bananas. Sprinkle with the coconut and leave to cool completely then put in the fridge to set. Serve cold or at room temerature. Enjoy !
I hope you all have a lovely weekend
