Rich chocolate tart with salt flakesšŸ„§

This recipe by Jamie Oliver serves 12 and and turned out delicious. The combination of sweet and salty flavours work well.

  • 375 g shortcrust pastry
  • 300 ml double cream
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 1 pinch of fine sea salt
  • 50 g unsalted butter , (at room temperature)
  • 200 g dark chocolate , (70%)
  • 50 ml whole milk
  • sea salt flakes
  • creme fraĆ®che or ice cream

Preheat the oven to 180Ā°C/350Ā°F/gas 4. Roll out the pastry and use it to line a 23cm greased tart tin.


  • Sift 225g plain flour into a large bowl, add 100g diced butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in a pinch of salt, then add 2-3 tbsp water and mix to a firm dough.
  • Knead the dough briefly and gently on a floured surface.

Cover with baking paper, fill with dried beans and bake blind for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the beans and bake again for 15 minutes, or until golden.

Put the cream, sugar and fine sea salt in a pan and bring to the boil. Remove as soon as the mixture boils up. Off the heat, add the butter and snap in the chocolate. Stir until blended.

Take a couple of minutes for a breather, then stir in the milk. Keep stirring till shiny.

Pour into the tart shell and leave at room temperature for 2 hours to set.

Sprinkle sea salt flakes lightly all over, then serve with creme fraƮche or ice cream.
