In honour of the fact that this used to be a food blog once upon a time, I would like to point you in the direction of this excellent recipe for Pasteis de Nata. I first came across these scrumptilicious little custard tarts when we went to Madeira last year, where I used to have two for breakfast every morning. (When I say for breakfast, I actually mean for breakfast dessert. After the rest of the breakfast. And when I say two, I think I may actually mean three, although I have partially blocked that memory. It's good thing I swam around with my daughter on my back a LOT that week.)
Ever since we got back, I've been thinking about finding a recipe and trying to recreate the magic, and last week, I did exacly that. Do they taste exactly like they did on Madeira? Not really, but they are close enough. And they're very, very easy to make - you use puff pastry, ready-rolled, so it's not really proper baking. And this particular recipe uses milk rather than cream, which makes them rather virtuous, if you ask me. Virtuous enough that I ate, ahem, eight, on the day that I baked them. Yes, eight. Never mind.
That's it for now, really -I have to go and take the second batch out of the oven!
