The best feeling, is to remove a perfectly baked tart from the oven. This time, I made my own dough and added a bit of orange zest to it. It was just perfect and the best part was pouring the chocolate ganache over it.

What you’ll need:

For the Dough:

150 g unsalted Butter

100 g Sugar

A pinch of Salt

250 g all-purpose Flour

1 large Egg

The zest of 1 small Orange (you can skip this if you want to make a simple dough)

For the Ganache Filling:

150 g of dark Chocolate of your choice, chopped into pieces

25 g unsalted Butter, cubed

250 ml of Double Cream (you can substitute with light cream)

Pinch of sea Salt

How to make the dough:

1) In the bowl of a mixer, mix the sugar and butter (softened)

IMG_80313) Roll the dough, wrap it with a film wrap and place it in the fridge for an hour

IMG_80334) Roll out the dough (it’s okay if it’s coarse and doesn’t stick together, you can put the bits together in the tin)

5) Place it in a pie mold (greased) and poke it with a fork so that it doesn’t inflate, and cook it in a 180 degrees preheated oven for about 12 to 15 minutes

1) Heat the cream in a double boiler (i.e. bain-marie) until it starts to simmer

2) Remove from the heat and immediately add the chocolate and butter, then stir to bring all the ingredients together
