Raspberry Coconut Chocolate Almond Tart

This chocolate tart is my go to for a stand out dessert. It doesn’t rise, so it’s fool proof (just don’t burn it!) and it’s gluten free!

I’ve used raspberries and coconut on this recipe but you can use fresh fig and nougat or meringue and double cream. If you’re feeling really naughty top it with marshmallows and pistachios for a killer Rocky Road. My café is right next to a chocolate factory (Whistler’s Chocolate Factory- jealous much?) so I’ve used their 70% dark chocolate but you can use milk if you prefer.

  • Pour into a 20cm shallow tart tray, lined with baking paper to prevent spillage in the oven.

  • Let cool, then to dress the tart
