Bitterweet Chocolate Tart with Raspberries

Preparation time: 45 minutes plus chilling

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 12


200g (7oz) sweet shortcrust pastry

225g dark chocolate

150ml (1/4 pt) milk

100g (4oz) unsalted butter, softened

50g (2oz) caster sugar

2 egg yolks

1Ž2 tsp vanilla extract

350g raspberries

Icing sugar

You will need 1x 24cm loose base tart tin

Preheat oven to 190C, 170Cfan, 375F, gas 5.


Roll out the pastry and line the tart tin. Chill for 15 minutes. Prick the base with a fork and line with foil and baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes, remove the foil and baking beans and return to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes until crisp and brown. Set aside.

Place the milk and chocolate in a heavy based saucepan and place over a low heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate has just melted and the mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool

Whisk the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until pale. Add the egg yolks and vanilla and beat well. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. Pour the chocolate mixture into the pre baked tart case, smooth the top and chill for several hours or overnight.

When ready to serve, bring the tart to room temperature, pile the raspberries on top and dust with icing sugar.

The tart will keep, covered and refrigerated for two days.
