Creamy chocolate ganache with a hint of coffee in a classic shortcrust pastry.
Imagine this: Biting into a creamy chocolate ganache with a hint of coffee and a classic shortcrust pastry. Are you hungry yet?! This tart is vegan, refined sugar free and oh so divine. It's healthy enough to have for breakfast... right?!
For the base, basically you add all of the ingredients to a bowl, mix it, press it into a tart tin and bake it. The ganache ingredients are melted together, chilled in the fridge and whipped up to make a creamy and heavenly cloud. You don't need to pipe the ganache into the tart like how I did - you can just scoop it in and decorate it! Pretty easy right?!
Coffee chocolate ganache tart
- 1 ½ cups (225g) all-purpose plain flour
- ⅓ cup (85g) light-tasting vegetable oil, such as sunflower, rapeseed or refined coconut
- 3 tablespoons (30g) coconut sugar, or organic cane sugar
- 2-4 tablespoons (30–60g) water
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F or gas mark 4). Line the bottom of an 8-inch (20-cm) loose-bottom tart tin.
- To make the pastry: Combine the flour, oil, and sugar in a medium-size bowl. If the mixture is crumbly, add some extra water and mix until it becomes a pliable dough. Firmly press the mixture into the tart tin, and smooth the surface. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the surface is light brown. Allow the pastry to cool in the tart tin.
- To make the ganache: Add all of the ingredients in a medium-size saucepan or double-boiler over medium heat. Stir and mix until the majority of the chocolate has melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside until all of the chocolate has melted. Mix the ganache until all of the ingredients are well combined. Set aside the chocolate in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- Using a stand mixer or electric hand beater, whip the chilled ganache until it is fluffy and has changed colour.
- Scoop the ganache into a piping bag with a large star nozzle. Pipe the ganache into the chilled pastry case as desired. Chill the tart in the fridge until ready to serve.
- The tart can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
