Chocolate Tart

I almost forgot to post about the chocolate tart that I made during the New Years Eve. Anyway, this recipe was adapted from one of the Jamie Oliver cookbooks. I did not use the recipe for the tart shells. I have used the tart shell recipes from the Lemon Tartlets.

Chocolate Tart


1 tart shell, bake blind
1 cup plus 6 Tbsp Heavy Cream
2 Level Tbsp Sugar
A pinch of Salt
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 lb Bittersweet Chocolate, broken up
Scant 1/2 cup Cold Milk
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder for dusting


Place the cream, sugar and pinch of salt in a pan and bring to a boil. As soon as the mixture has boiled, remove from the heat and add the butter and chocolate. Stir until it has completely melted. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, stirring in the cold milk until smooth and shiny. Sometimes this mixture looks it has separated. Allow to cool down a bit more and whisk in a little extra cold milk until smooth.

Scrape all the mixture into the cooked and cooled pastry shell with a spatula. Shake the tart to even it out and allow to cool for around 1 to 2 hours until it is at room temperature.

Dust with the cocoa powder. Ultimately the pastry should be short and crisp and the filling should be smooth and should cut like butter.


  1. Great looking pie. I prefer this to a heavy chocolate cake, and the raspberries would be very nice with it.

  2. Oh my! This looks DELICIOUS! I can't get enough of the chocolate raspberry combo, so I'll definitely be bookmarking this!

  3. Thanks Court & Karly. I love the raspberries with chocolate combo too.

  7. @ smallkitchenbigideas: Thanks. I like both but lemon is my preferred choice.

  8. A very tempting tart ! great pictures. I just start to crave for this chocolate tart. I wish I could reach it via internet. :)

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
