▢¼ cup / 60 ml buttermilk or 1 teaspoon / 5 ml lemon juice mixed into ¼ cup of milk

▢2 ¼ cups / 270g cake flour / all-purpose flour

▢1 level teaspoon / 4 grams baking powder

FOR THE FILLING

▢2 ½ cups / 150g desiccated / shredded coconut

▢2 Tablespoons cake OR all-purpose flour

▢1 teaspoon baking powder

▢⅔ cup / 134g sugar SEE NOTE 1

▢½ cup / 125ml milk

▢½ cup / 120ml sweetened condensed milk

▢1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

▢4 Tablespoons / 60g melted butter


Start by making the pastry by creaming the sugar and butter.


Add the buttermilk and beat well until light and creamy


Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine and handle lightly to form a soft dough. Place in the fridge or freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes while you make the filling.


TO MAKE THE FILLING

THE COCONUT FILLING

Combine the desiccated coconut, flour and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.


In another bowl, add in the sugar, condensed milk, vanilla extract, melted butter and milk and mix well using a whisk. Mix in the coconut flour mixture into it and whisk well to combine


CUT AND SHAPE THE PASTRY INTO THE TART PAN

Lightly dust the work surface with flour and roll out the chilled pastry. Using a cookie cutter, cut and press the pastry into a greased tart or cupcake pan.


FILL AND BAKE

Use a spoon or an ice cream scoop to put the filling into the pastry. Bake in a preheated oven at 320ºF (160ºC) for 20 minutes or until they turn golden brown and fully cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the tart or cupcake tin.


NOTES

I use just a 1/4 cup of sugar for these coconut tarts, but feel free to add a bit more if you prefer a sweeter bake.
