Chocolate Ganache Tart

The first time I had chocolate ganache tart was in France. This was the first dessert I learned to make in France as well. When I first had it even for me it was too chocolaty and it was too rich. The chocolate quality that I used to have back home and in France was so different. France we had the best quality chocolate and it was rich and super chocolaty but over time, I grew to like this dessert. In France, we didn’t serve it with any fruits, just the chocolate tart with whipped cream on the top but the addition of the red berries and the sweet shortcut pastry just works perfectly well.

The chocolate tart recipe I have done here. The ganache is not super solid it is creamy and palatable, exactly the way it should be. Some recipes make it extra hard which is not very pleasant to eat. This recipe is directly from France and I have decorated it with berries to balance out the rich chocolate flavour with the tartness of the berries and the crunchy element from the shortcrust pastry.

This is one of the most popular chocolate desserts in France.

  • Oven


Sweet Shortcrust Pastry

  • 150 g All-purpose Flour
  • 50 g Egg yolk
  • 58 g Icing sugar
  • 63 g Butter Unsalted

Ganache filling

  • 300 g Cream
  • 25 g Butter
  • 50 g Glucose syrup
  • 300 g Dark chocolate


Sweet Shortcrust Pastry

  • Preheat oven to 180C conventional oven

  • Then gradually add flour and mix until mixed through. Don't over mix. Once it becomes a dough, wrap it in cling film and refrigerate at least for 2 hours
  • Take the dough out after 2 hours, flatten it using a rolling pin about 1/2 cm thickness, place the dough on the tarte shell base, cut off excess dough and push it with your fingers.
    The dough is extremely delicate, it is ok, if it cracks a little, you can always paste it together by combining a bit of dough together. Once it is baked it will not be visible.
  • Using a fork pierce the dough base
  • Bake it in the oven for 15-20 mins until the tart is cooked and golden brown
  • Let it cool down completely before taking it out of the tart shell.
    It should slide out very easily

Ganache filling

  • In a pan add cream and glucose syrup. Let the cream heat up until warm. Turn off the heat. Add dark chocolates in. Mix well until diluted and mixed through. Finally, add the butter. Let it cool down slightly.
  • Pour the ganache filling into the tart base and refrigerate at least overnight for the filling to set
  • Decorate it with berries and serve

      Hello, It should easily slide out once cooled, just lift one side slightly using the back end of the spoon and slide it over gently from your hand. Some pie tins also have detachable bottom and sides, which makes them easier to remove.

      Hope this helps

      Thank you
