TWD - Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart


If the name Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart doesn't captivate you, will this photo of the bottom of the pie, filled with juicy raspberries do it?

This pie couldn't possibly be easier to put together. It's melted chocolate and eggs, lightly beaten to a pudding (not too much froth), then baked and left at room temperature. I took the ultimate shortcut and bought a crust. Why not? This dessert was gone too quickly for anyone to remark on the crust.

I finally remembered to buy some really nice Lindt chocolate and used it in the filling. The taste was rich and delicious; every bite held a raspberry.

Many thanks to Rachelle of the blog Mommy? I'm Hungry! for choosing this recipe. Please check out her post because she's not only got the filling recipe, but has included Dorie's excellent crust recipe too. This pie is a keeper!

  1. Your tart looks great. I wish there was more berries in mine but I couldn't bring myself to buy more than one container of blackberries. I love the picture of all the pretty raspberries.

  2. I like the powdered sugar on top. Really dresses up the tart. If I ever make this again, that's what I'll do.

  4. Those raspberries -- and your tart -- look delicious. It looks just like I imagined the tart before baking: soft, creamy, fruity, with a nice dollop of whipped cream on top.

  8. Boy this surely makes it difficult to eat healthily. Right? Looks delicious! It does have fruit, dark chocolate ( another food group), eggs and milk though so perhaps there are some redeeming qualities nutritionally speaking. Great job.

  12. You are right about the photo of the raspberries, they made me wish I had used them instead of blackberries! Good call on the Lindt as well!

  13. Oh yum, I'm jealous of all of your gorgeous raspberries! They were too expensive here so I just made a plain chocolate tart. It was still tasty but quite rich!

  15. Very clever of you to use a bought crust! The raspberries look amazing with that chocolate; I might have to try that combination next.

  16. I wish I splurged on raspberries... dried cherries are NOT a good choice! This looks marvelous. I've got to try one of those "boughten" crusts - they look so perfect!

  17. You are getting so good at the food porn pictures. You frequently force me to go to the bakery for something that falls far short of your handiwork. Berry and chocolate pie? Shut up!
