Almond ‘Nutella’ Tart


Almond ‘Nutella’ Tart


It is a dark and dank day today and I did what I often do when at a bit of a loose end, I had bit of a play in the kitchen.

I made some almond ‘Nutella’ then started thinking about uses, as I do, and thought, bet it would work well in a tart. Note that the mix I make now is usually the almond version which is at the bottom of the post.

And my goodness, it really does work. Gorgeous!

What were the almond ‘nutella’ tarts like?

I only intended to make one little tart, but once I’d rolled out the titchy amount of pastry, I could see that it would do another one.

I thought the ‘Nutella’ mixture would hold its shape in the oven, and it did, just rising slightly as it cooked.

The cooked tart is divine! Bear in mind I used home made ‘Nutella’ in mine, the actual branded stuff may well perform differently.

It is very chocolatey, not too sweet, but a bit too moreish! I cut a tiny segment from one of the tarts to try it. If I have more than that, I risk being kept awake all night by the caffeine.

The texture is similar to a Bakewell tart.

Variations for almond ‘nutella’ tarts

Well, of course, I can think of several different things!

Serve it with single cream, double cream, creme fraiche or ice cream.

Make it the same size as jam tarts and it would work as a tea time treat for children. Probably not for a school lunch as most schools don’t allow chocolate or nuts.

Flavour it with orange zest, or even lemon zest. Add a bit of vanilla. Put chocolate sauce on the bottom of the pastry case before adding the ‘Nutella’ for a fudgey base.

Add a generous splosh of rum or similar to make a grown up pudding, great for entertaining.

Vegans, omit the milk powder and milk and replace with Provamel. I mention that one, as Oatly, which would also work, has palm oil in which is worse than trans fats for health.
