  • Food processor
  • Spatula
  • Mixing bowls
  • Saucepan
  • Hand whisk
  • Tart pan


For the shortcrust

  • 100 g butter
  • 150 g almond meal
  • 3 tbsp potato starch
  • 2 tbsp sugar

For the filling

  • 200 ml whipping cream
  • 150 g dark chocolate chopped
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg

For the topping

  • 100 g almonds sliced
  • 100 g butter
  • 80 g sugar
  • 2 tbsp potato starch


  • Add shortcrust ingredients to a food processor and bliz until combined.
  • Press shortcrust onto a tart pan and prick bottom and sides with a fork.
  • Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C (360°F) for 25 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat the cream in a saucepan and remove from the heat before it reaches boiling temperature.
  • Add the chopped chocolate and whisk until melted. Stir in the sugar.
  • Crack the egg in a small bowl aside and lightly whisk it. Pour into chocolate mixture in a slow stream while whisking energically to combine.
  • Take the half-baked shortcrust out of the oven and pour the chocolate filling in. The almond meal shortcrust might swell as it bakes, but should deflate before you add the chocolate filling.
  • Return the tart to the oven. Reduce the temperature to 160°C (320°F) and bake for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, add the topping ingredients to a saucepan and set on medium heat. Stir until the butter has melted, then remove from the heat.
  • Take the chocolate tart out of the oven and gently spoon the almond topping all over it. The chocolate filling will not have completely set yet, so be extra gentle.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 175°C (350°F) and bake the tart 15 more minutes, until the chocolate filling sets and the almond topping takes a golden tone.


The shortcrust base may swell during the first 20 minutes of baking, even if you prick the bottom and sides with a fork. It should naturally deflate as it gets golden, or when you take it out of the oven to add the chocolate filling.
