Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on a baking sheet. Sit an 8-inch (20 cm) tart ring on this.

Roll out 250 g Sweetcrust pastry (pâte sablée) and line the tart ring, leaving a little pastry overhanging around the edge.

Put to wait in the fridge.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Prepare the chocolate custard filling

Put 250 ml whole milk, 250 ml liquid cream and 100 g caster sugar into a saucepan on medium heat. Bring to the boil, stirring from time to time to dissolve the sugar.

Stage 3 - 4 min.

Turn off the heat and tip in 100 g chocolate, which should be broken into small pieces beforehand.

Mix until the chocolate is completely melted.

Stage 4 - 2 min.

Stage 5 - 7 min.

Stage 6 - 2 min.

Stage 7 - 3 min.

Stage 10

Leave to cool before slipping off the ring. You can eat this right away, but it will be even better next day if left overnight in the fridge first.

Remarks

You can make this with milk chocolate instead of dark, if you prefer.

Fancy even more chocolate? Use chocolate sweetcrust pastry instead of the usual plain.
