I made this for a relative's birthday, trying to conceive of a rich dessert but suitable for those who follow a gluten-free diet/celiac. Tarte au chocolat came to mind as something sinfully decadent.

I adjusted the filling as well, using low-fat cream,it still tastes wicked but you can eat it without the same amount of guilt. Make sure you get fresh berries to decorate if you can.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 6-8 servings


For Pastry
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1 egg, beaten
50g butter, cold and chopped
1 tbsp cocoa powder
Water to combine

For Chocolate Filling
120ml low fat cooking cream (I used Bulla)
60ml milk
150g dark chocolate
1 egg
15g butter

1 punnet raspberries

Preheat oven to 180C.

To make the pastry, combine the dry ingredients (rice flour, almond meal, cocoa powder). Create a well in the middle, add the egg and butter, mix well. It is a bit crumbly when it comes together, add a little water to make it a bit easier to handle.

The dough is hard to roll so using a fluted tart pan, just press the dough into the base, making sure you fill the entire case. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, fill a saucepan/pot with water so it is a bit less than half-full. Bring to the boil and place a heat-proof bowl on top.

Melt butter and chocolate. When most of the chocolate is melted, add the cream slowly. Lightly beat the egg with the milk and pour into the mixture, incorporating all ingredients. Be careful to not burn the mixture, stir continuously for about a minute till it is combined.

Take bowl off the heat and turn off the oven. Carefully pour the chocolate filling in the tart pan, replace in the oven (switched off but still hot) for around 15 minutes.

Allow tart to cool for a few minutes and before it sets, get your fresh fruit and decorate. I used raspberries but you could use any fruit you like really.

Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Try to not eat it all in one sitting

Hi Tegs

Could this be made in advance and frozen (without the berries)?
