#13 - Rich chocolate tart with salt flakes

dessert recipes | serves 4-6

The next recipe in our celebratory rundown for our 50th edition is this indulgent dessert from issue 13, a while before the 'salted chocolate' trend went global! You can make the pastry for this, if you like, but ready-made is easier. Either way it's a gorgeous treat for the bank holiday.

1. Preheat the oven to 180/gas 4. Roll out the pastry and use it to line a 23cm greased tart tin. Cover with baking paper, fill with dried beans and bake blind for 10-15 minutes, then remove the beans and bake again for 15 minutes until golden.
2. Put the cream, sugar and salt in a pan and bring to the boil. Remove as soon as the mixture boils up. With the pan off the heat, add the butter and chocolate. Stir until blended.
3. Take a couple of minutes for a breather, then stir in the milk. Keep stirring till it's shiny. Pour into the tart shell and leave at room temperature for 2 hours to set.
4. Sprinkle the salt flakes lightly all over, then serve with crème fraîche or ice cream.
