Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me find a recipe for a chocolate tart I used to have for school dinners. I've been dreaming of it for years but can only find a school toothpaste tart which definitely wasn't it. It was a plain pastry base with a smooth chocolate filling but not like a ganache. Thank you.
You have to know where to look! Was it this by any chance?
Chocolate Flan recipe
Ingredients & Quantities Pastry
180g of Flour 40g of Margarine 40g of Lard Pinch of Salt 30ml of Water Filling
1200ml of Water 90g of Sugar 90g of Cornflour 1/2tsp Vanilla Essence 110g of Dried Milk 30g of Cocoa Powder Method Line a tin with the pastry, crimp the pastry edges, prick well and blind bake. Whisk the dried milk with most of the water. Blend the cornflour, sugar and cocoa with the remainder of the water. Bring the milk to the boil and add the cornflour mixture, as for blancmange. Cook for 10 minutes and pour on to the pastry case. Decorate with piping cream or dust with icing sugar. Notes: any flavoured cornflours could be used instead of the normal cornflour and cocoa powder.
Chocolate concrete was fab. Anyone remember that? It was usually served with a squirt of mock cream on it, which was horrid, but once you'd scraped that off, it was great to smuggle into your regulation knickers pocket to keep you going through the afternoon classes. I liked the sago (frogspawn) and semolina puds tho. I was a strange child!
