Step 1

To make the pastry sift flour, make a well in the centre and add sugar, lemon rind, egg, anisette and the melted butter.

Step 2

Gradually mix, slowly adding the milk to get a soft, pliable dough.

Step 3

Cover and rest for one hour in the fridge.

Step 4

Make the yellow custard by placing all ingredients in a saucepan, mixing together until smooth and then place on the heat and stir continuously until it thickens, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 5

Take off the heat and cool for 5 to 10 minutes and then make the chocolate custard the same way.

Step 6

Grease and line a 23cm spring form baking dish.

Roll out the pastry to fit the baking dish, about 1/2cm to 1cm thickness.

Step 8

Add the yellow custard and then the chocolate custard.

Step 9

Bake for 40 to 60 minutes at 160C-170C.
