Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups (260g) plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (50g) hazelnut meal
  • 2 tbs caster sugar
  • 180g Devondale Unsalted Butter, chopped
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 tbs iced water
  • Mixed berries, to decorate
  • Bought vanilla buttercream, to decorate
  • Chocolate Easter eggs, to decorate

Filling

  • 1 cup (250ml) thickened cream
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 300g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 70g Devondale Unsalted Butter, chopped

Method

STEP 1

To make the filling, place the cream and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat. Remove from heat. Stir in the chocolate and butter until melted and combined. Set aside for 1 hour to cool.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, process the flour, hazelnut meal and sugar in a food processor until combined. Add butter and egg yolk and process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add iced water and pulse until dough comes together. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 15 mins to chill.

STEP 3

Preheat oven to 200°C. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until large enough to line a 10cm x 35cm (base measurement) rectangular fluted tart tin with removable base. Line tin with pastry and place in the fridge for 15 mins to chill.

STEP 4

Line pastry with baking paper. Fill with pastry weights or rice and bake for 10 mins. Remove weights or rice and baking paper. Reduce oven to 160°C. Bake for 15 mins or until light golden. Set aside in the pan to cool.

STEP 5 

Pour filling into the pastry case. Place in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight or until set.

STEP 6 

Decorate the tart with mixed berries, buttercream and Easter eggs.
