Strawberry Custard Filo Tart

This strawberry-topped custard tart has pastry throughout the filling, giving each bite a perfect balance of sweet custard, strawberries, crunchy flaked almonds and delicious filo pastry.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 1 free-range or organic egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup (increase to 3 tbsp for a sweet custard)
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 270mL canned coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Juice & zest, ½ lemon
  • 6 filo pastry sheets
  • 50g butter, melted, to brush the pastry
  • 100g strawberries, quartered
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds
  • 1 tsp rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C fan-forced. Line a quiche or pie tin with baking paper or grease well.
  • Start with making the custard. Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over a medium heat, whisking well until it thickens (about 5 mins).
  • Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Brush a sheet of the filo with butter and place another on top and brush it too. Place across 1 side of the tin, tucking in any pastry that spills over the edge. Repeat to cover the other side of the tin (so 4 sheets of filo form the base).
  • Brush 1 piece of filo and fold into a 2cm rough strip. Starting from the centre of the tin, make a coil. Repeat with another piece of filo so there is a coil with a 1cm or so gap inside the tin. Bake on the bottom shelf of the oven for 10 mins.
  • Pipe the cooled custard between the layers of filo (you can use a piping bag or cut the corner from a snap-lock bag and fill to pipe). Add the strawberry pieces and toss the flaked almonds in the honey and scatter on top of the tart.
  • Bake for another 15 mins.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting and enjoying.
