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
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
In a pan, put 100 ml milk and 250 ml cream, bring to the boil.

Stage 3 - 3 min.
Chocolate tart
As soon as it boils, remove from heat and add 200 g dark chocolate cut in small pieces. Mix until obtaining a smooth mixture.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Chocolate tart
Break 2 eggs into a bowl and add 10 g Vanilla sugar.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Chocolate tart
Beat to mix thoroughly.

Stage 6 - 3 min.
Chocolate tart
Then add beaten eggs to the chocolate mixture, and mix well.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Chocolate tart
Pour the mixture into the pastry case.

Stage 8 - 15 min.
Chocolate tart
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
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
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.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, folded in a plastic film.
