Dark Chocolate Orange Tart – A buttery, flaky chocolate orange-infused crust filled with a luxuriously creamy chocolate orange pudding!
Today, I bring you another recipe that combines two of my favourite flavours – chocolate and orange. I bring you my Dark Chocolate Orange Tart!
This tart is luxuriously rich and creamy, it is just divine. The crust is definitely a favourite part of this tart for me. It’s deliciously flaky and buttery (see those specks of butter? Yum!), wonderfully chocolatey, and infused with orange (zest and juice).
Your kitchen will smell amazing just making the crust!
Dark Chocolate Orange Tart
The chocolate orange crust is blind-baked before adding the filling. All you need is some foil or parchment paper, and some baking beans. Line the pastry-lined tin with foil, then fill with the baking beans.
Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the foil and beans and bake for a further 5 minutes. Brush with beaten egg, and bake again for 1 minute. And you’re done!
Be sure to keep the dough cold at all times. This helps achieve a flaky crust, and helps prevent shrinkage during baking. I like to chill the dough for an hour before lining the tart tin, and then another hour after lining the tin.
Now, for the filling. The filling only contains 5 ingredients – dark chocolate, cream, sugar, eggs, and orange juice. Simply melt the chocolate, then combine all the ingredients together.
Pour the filling into the baked tart crust, and bake for 25 – 30 minutes until the top is set and the centre is no longer wobbly.
The chocolate orange filling is seriously melt-in-your-mouth goodness. It’s incredibly creamy and velvety, making this tart a chocolate lover’s dream dessert. Trust me, you’re going to LOVE this tart!
Make this Chocolate Orange Tart for your next party, it’ll be gone in no time! 😉
