How To Make White Chocolate & Cadbury Soft Fondant Center Eggs Tart Step By Step
Start by making the pastry. In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, and cold butter cubes, and use your fingertips to swiftly rub in until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Slightly beat the egg, then add it to the mixture with a teaspoon of cold water. If the dough is too dry, add a little bit more cold water.
Work the dough just enough to form a ball, wrap it in clingfilm, and place it in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180℃ / 350℉, roll out the chilled pastry, and mold it into a 23 cm / 9 inches loose bottom fluted flan pan that’s greased with a little bit of butter.
Blind bake the pastry crust by covering it with parchment paper and filling it with baking beans. Bake it for 15 minutes or until the crust is brown around the edges.
Remove the parchment paper with the baking beans. Using a fork, prick some holes into the bottom of the crust, and bake for another 12 to 15 minutes. Leave the crust to cool completely.
To prepare the white chocolate ganache, gently heat the cream in a saucepan. Then, remove it from the heat and add the white chocolate, stirring until it is completely melted.
Pour the white chocolate ganache into the cooled crust and smooth it over with the back of a spoon.
Place the halved chocolate eggs, filling side up, on top of the white chocolate ganache, pushing them gently down, so the cut edge is level with the top of the ganache. Leave it to set for about 1 hour, then enjoy!
- If you don’t have baking beans, you can also use dry beans to blind-bake your tart.
- The tart will need approximately one hour to set before it can be served.
