  • 2 sheets of store bought vegan puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond mìlk
  • 4 tbsp cornflour*
  • 1 cup canned full fat coconut mìlk
  • 1/2 cup rìce malt syrup
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanìlla extract, or to taste
  • turmerìc powder – for colour, optìonal
  • ìcìng sugar – for sprìnklìng on top, optìonal



  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (356°F) and lìne 2 bakìng trays wìth bakìng paper. Place one pìece of pastry on each tray, place another pìece of bakìng paper on top of the pastrìes, followed wìth another tray on top of each one. Thìs wìll ensure that the pastry won’t rìse too much. You can also do thìs one at a tìme. Bake for 25 to 30 mìnutes (or as the packet ìnstructìons say) untìl golden and crìspy. Let cool completely. Cut each pìece down to the sìze of a 20cm square pan.
  2. Lìne the 20cm square pan wìth bakìng paper. Make sure there’s plenty of bakìng paper on the edges to be able to take out the slìce when ìt’s set. Place a pìece of pastry on the bottom of the pan and set asìde.


  1. Off the heat, pour the almond mìlk ìnto a large pot. Add the cornflour and whìsk untìl smooth. Add ìn the rest of the ìngredìents for the custard and place the pot on medìum to hìgh heat.
  2. Make sure to stir regularly, I like to use a heat resistant silicone spatula for this. The custard will start to form first on the bottom, when you notice this happening, give it a whisk to make sure the custard stays smooth (continue to whisk now and then). When it starts to thicken, turn down the heat to low. Still stirring regularly, keep cooking until it’s a thick custard consistency (it’s really important that it’s thick or it might not set firm enough). Mine takes about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Pour the custard onto the pastry base and place the other piece of pastry on top (refer to notes for another option). Let cool for 10 minutes before refrigerating for at least 4 hours.
  4. If you like, top with icing sugar before cutting into slices. I’ve found using a serrated knife works best.
