White Chocolate Tart in time for The Championships Wimbledon
With The Championships Wimbledon about to start it’s the best excuse for a new take on the strawberry tart. My tart recipe is a mix of sweet white chocolate and ginger, topped with fresh fruit and chopped pistachios added for crunch.
Anyone for tennis and a slice of tart?
What substitutions can I make?
I’m afraid that I’m no expert dietician and so this advice may not be perfect, however:
- For a more Christmassy version, try adding fresh cinnamon and plenty of fresh cranberries and orange zest!
- A lemon and white chocolate tart is also super easy to create! You could swap light to dark or milk chocolate, Then, just use plenty of citrus juice and let the tart keep it’s light summer flavours
- A dark chocolate cherry tart – use dark chocolate and lovely, juicy fresh cherries for a black forest-style tart!
So! Enjoy baking – and make sure to tag me a photo on social media if you give it a shot,
This is so super delicious. It’s a super simple base which has a lot of flavour on it’s own so the addition of fruits takes it to the next level. Perfect for parties and events all year long.
