  • 1 roll dairy-free puff pastry
  • 1 teaspoon vegan margarine

For the custard filling

  • 1 litre dairy-free milk of choice (e.g. soy milk /oat milk /almond milk)
  • 125 ml Orley Whip dessert cream
  • 1 teaspoon 5ml alcohol-free caramel essence
  • 1 teaspoon 5ml vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 5 heaped tablespoons cornflour


  • Turn the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Line an ovenproof dish (the size of a dinner plate) with vegan margarine.
  • Unroll the thawed puff pastry sheet and roll flat to fit the size of the dish.
  • Cut the pastry into the shape of the dish.
  • Place the pastry inside the dish and set aside.
  • Make a thick custard filling: Mix all the custard ingredients together in a pot and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until thick.
  • Cool slightly, pour the filling into the base and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 – 40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and chill in the fridge to set.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon


Tip: Use the same filling to make custard slices! Substitute the puff pastry for dairy-free cream crackers and layer the cream crackers below and atop the custard filling. Let it chill in the fridge and then ice your custard slices with a mix of icing sugar and water (use instructions on the packet).
