1. Cream margarine until light and fluffy, add the egg and beat well.

2. Sift the cake flour, Sugalite® and salt into the dry ingredients and mix to form a firm dough. Rest the dough for 30 minutes before using.

3. Press a third of the dough into a greased pie dish and bake blind in a preheated oven at 200ºC for 10 minutes until golden brown. The left-over pastry can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for a week.

3. Add a little of the heated milk to the egg mixture and then add it to the rest of the milk. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Beat egg whites until stiff, not dry and fold into egg and milk mixture.

4. Pour it into the baked pastry case and leave to cool. When the milk tart is set sprinkle with cinnamon, cut into slices and serve.
