Chocolate tart

As you can see, there's very little added sugar in this recipe, so it's a very chocolatey and bitter-sweet tart.

Step by step recipe

Stage 1
1 hour 40 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #1 Blind bake 300 g Sweetcrust pastry (pâte sablée) to obtain a cooked tart case, and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 150°C or 302°F.
Stage 2
10 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #2 In a pan, put 100 ml milk and 250 ml cream, bring to the boil.
Stage 3
3 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #3 As soon as it boils, remove from heat and add 200 g chocolate cut in small pieces. Mix until obtaining a smooth mixture.
Stage 4
2 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #4 Break 2 eggs into a bowl and add 10 g Vanilla sugar.
Stage 5
1 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #5 Beat to mix thoroughly.
Stage 6
3 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #6 Then add beaten eggs to the chocolate mixture, and mix well.
Stage 7
2 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #7 Pour the mixture into the pastry case.
Stage 8
15 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #8 Cook about 15 minutes, watching carefully. The tart should still be the "trembling" slightly in the centre to be perfect.
Stage 9
10 min.
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #9 Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a rack (careful - it's very very fragile). Serve warm or cold the same day, while the pastry is still crisp and the chocolate creamy, a pure delight!
Stage 10
Chocolate tart : Photo of step #10 For a professional look which eliminates small imperfections from the surface (like in the photograph), remember to pour the mixture into the tart through a very fine strainer.

Remarks

To decorate, you can sprinkle it, when cold, with a little cocoa powder, icing sugar and/or chocolate chips.

You can also add a delicious citrus fruit flavour to the chocolate, by adding a fine layer of candied grapefruit peel before pouring in the chocolate.
