1 cup – Butter
5-6g – Baking powder
½ kg – Dark chocolate compond
100g – Butter
1 – Egg
½ cup – Heavy cream
¼ cup – Suagr
A few drops of chocolate essence
Cocoa powder for garnish
Icing sugar for garnish ( optional)
* In a food processor, combine the confectioners’ sugar, flour, and butter, and process until the mixture turns into a ball. With your fingers, press the dough into a 12-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, taking care to push the crust into the indentations on the sides.
* Pat until the crust is even. Bake for 10-12 mins, until very lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
* Melt chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and cool for 5 mins.
* Whisk together eggs, cream, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until it’s well mixed.
* Pour filling into the cooled crust and rap the pan once on counter to eliminate any air bubbles.
* Bake for 20-25 mins until the filling is set keeping a gap of 1 inch from the edge. Check that the tart is slightly puffed but the centre trembles slightly when pan is gently shaken. Centre will continue to set as it cools.
* Demould it and cool tart completely. Sprinkle cocoa powder over it.
* Take a heart shape cutter and sprinkle icing sugar in the center of the tart.
