I'm starting a series called cake recipes because some of the cakes I posted here in the early days of this blog deserve a bit more love. They are great cakes, but no one ever saw them. Today we start with the best chocolate tart recipe ever, it's simple, it's melt in your mouth moist and you are going to love it. This would be a great celebration cake with Easter on the horizon.
Easy Chocolate Tart
1x 250g (9oz) packet of chocolate biscuits. I use tiny teddys, but any plain chocolate biscuits will do.
100g butter melted
Process biscuits to fine crumbs and mix in melted butter. Press into greased 23cm (9 inch) pie plate. Refrigerate until needed.
200g (7oz) milk chocolate I use cooking milk chocolate but you could also use dark cooking chocolate
125g (4.5oz) melted butter
Half cup caster sugar
1tspn vanilla essence
30g (1oz) cocoa sifted
Melt chocolate in a small bowl over a saucepan of simmering water..... allow to cool slightly.
In another bowl place butter, sugar, vanilla and 1 egg, blend until pale and creamy. Add the chocolate mixture and blend until smooth
Place remaining 3 eggs in another bowl and whisk until pale and thick. Add the chocolate mixture and cocoa and whisk to combine.
Place the pie plate on a baking tray and pour the chocolate filling into the prepared crust. Bake at preheated oven, at 180 C or 350 F for 40 minutes.
Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or at room temp with double cream or ice cream and berries.
I encourage you very strongly to give this a go. You will be loved I guarantee it.
