Gypsy Tart

What is a gypsy tart?

For those of you who don't know, this excellent dessert item from my school dinner menu of many years ago, comprised of:

Condensed milk
Demerara sugar

Both of these items were whipped and spread over a pastry base. The appearance was that of a smooth pale brown creamy topping. Mmmm.....delicious.

I was reminded of this by Lord Roger of Northwood (that's Northwood in Ramsgate) rather than the other one in Middx. Both he and I, attended schools which fell under the auspices of Kent County Council, and as such, in those days, had autonomy for creating some superb school meals.
