A Low Calorie, Low Carb, Egg-Custard Tart Recipe, Adaptable To Any Diet.

Serious news for all you dessert-lovers out there - we have come up with a sugar-free adaption of the egg tart recipe that the 2-Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing made for the Queen on her 80th birthday. Using Lo-Dough as the pastry replacement and swapping out the sugar for quality sweetener, you get all the rich creamy taste of the original, but with the added bonus of it now being suitable for any diet.

At 159 calories per quarter, 2.5 carbs and 15g of fat (this can be increased for keto diets by switching to double cream - or swapped for skimmed milk if slimming), this is a dream dessert for those of you on any diet - the single cream could be swapped out for skimmed milk if desired to drop  the count for all the slimmers looking to indulge. 

You will need to make a fresh custard, but it's incredibly simple - it takes just 10 minutes to pull together and then when poured into the Lo-Dough case, the whole thing is gently baked for a further 25 minutes. It holds up as a stand-alone item - the nutmeg and vanilla making it heady and indulgent, but it can just as easily be garnished with more cream, creme fraiche, fresh fruit - anything you desire. 

Every so often, we all need a sweet treat, but that doesn't mean you have to reach for the sugar. Many baked recipes can now be made with quality modern sweeteners - give them a go - we promise you won't miss the sugar!
