Ah! So lo and behold, I got sick on Sunday4. What’s wrong with this picture? Another Sunday with being sick. Except this one has lasted a week. So, of course Sunday4 was delayed. But who cares. I’m doing the challenge and it doesn’t matter the date. The day before we were going to do Sunday4 the husband and I took the baking book to a local eatery and went through the book. We decided on the chocolate tart. Easy recipe. Easy ingredients (none of this driving to 5 stores to find the ingredients!). Just pain ‘ol easy. I needed easy, after the last one.
As you see in the picture (right), just 21 steps to follow. I like myself an easy recipe. The biggest challenge I faced this time around was the dough. Not the assembly or the mixing or the rolling of it. It was the “now it’s rolled out, how do I transfer it to my tart pan” problem! But before we get into that, let me show you the steps leading up to that.
Ingredients for dough pictured above. As you can see, easy stuff!
Cute dough ball.
And there it went. Cute ball now flat. Once it was 1/8 inch thick flattened, we were ready to go. Or so I thought. I took, rather, WE both tried to take the dough straight from the counter to the tart pan. Didn’t work. It broke apart. So we rolled it back up, took it to the pan and the hubs flattened it out on the pan. Big helper he was. 🙂 How do I get it from the counter to the pan without breaking????
Once it was on the tart pan, and flat, I poked the holes and the fun part came next.
We added beans! Don’t ask. It was just fun. 🙂
As it baked in the oven, I set my double boiler to do this:
Melted the dark chocolate with the butter to start prepping for the yummy part of the tart: CHOCOLATE!
The eggs and heavy cream were next. Can you tell this recipe is THAT GOOD for you??? Dairy. Antioxidants in the dark chocolate. Protein in the eggs. Good for you stuff!
Once all the ingredients are together, it looks amazing! Put it in the oven and well, take a look for yourself how good it is:
All baked. All cut. All in all, this recipe wasn’t hard. This tart looks and tastes AMAZING! Will post recipe this week!
