Happy Friday Bitchachos. Sorry for my absence of late – you know how it is with all this beautiful weather. Plus it was my sister’s 30th birthday and I’m going back to London to see her next weekend and the present is taking some time to create. I will let you know how it goes once it’s done.

But enough of my poor excuse. Unlike the last post, this one is pretty photo-light. I just wanted to share this beautiful and EASY tart with you all. There is a great little soup, juice, salad place on my street near work in Berlin called Suppen grün. They always have they most intriguing tarts in there. The latest beauty was a tart filled with what looked like chocolate pudding, with some strawberries and strawberry looking glaze on top. Finished by sprinkling some greeny/purply crushed pistachios. I was very lazy when making it. Rather than making the chocolate pudding I just bought some, along with some strawberries, some strawberry jam and pistachios. Then I made some sweet pastry and tada a wonderful dessert.

 

I haven’t got much time, so here is the recipe – enjoy and have fabulous weekends. Man, man, MAN am I looking forward to the weekend. Work has been a bit intense this week and I can’t wait to just lie down and not think about anything except cakes and pies.

the sweet pastry

Ingredients

  1. 250g plain flour
  2. 100g icing sugar
  3. 100g unsalted butter, slightly softened and chopped
  4. 2 tbps cold water
  5. pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to around 180°C
  2. Sieve the flour and icing sugar into one bowl and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon
  3. Add the butter and use your finger tips to mix in the butter until it forms bread crumb like consistency
  4. Add the cold water and mix all the ingredients together thoroughly until a ball of dough forms
  5. Refridgerate for 1 hour – then roll out into a dough that fits your mini tart form– about half a cm thick
  6. Line each form with some vegetable oil( so the pastry easier to remove once cooked) and line this with pastry – cut the edges or excess off to neaten).
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes in the oven
  8. Remove and allow to cool

Chocolate and Strawberry filling

Ingredients

  1. 200ml chocolate pudding
  2. 2 handfuls strawberries (fresh and washed)
  3. 1 handful pistachios (deshelled and lightly crushed)
  4. 3 tbsp strawberry jam
  5. 1 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. In a pot mix the water and the jam and heat until they melt into eachother (while mixing) and making a more liquid consistency. Remove from the heat
  2. Once your tart cases have cooled, spoon some chocolate pudding into each so the case is almost full.
  3. Now cut the green of the strawberry and cut virtically into equal sized pieces. Place these in the chocolate pudding neatly (see photo)
  4. Using a teaspoon, spoon a little bit of the jam mixture over the strawberries on each tart
  5. Sprinkle some crushed pistachio over the top and serve!
