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.

Stage 8 - 15 min.

Cook about 15 minutes, watching carefully. The tart should still be the "trembling" slightly in the centre to be perfect.

Stage 9 - 10 min.

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

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.
