Ohhh I do love a good dessert! This blog doesn’t have cupcakes in the title for nothing. Spending a couple of hours in the kitchen languishing over a scrum-didli-umptious sweet treat and watching people cherish every last bite is highly satisfying.
There is nothing better than following up a delicious meal with a decadent dessert. Luckily for me my family also shares my same passion for sweet treats. When they came to visit last weekend for our big family BBQ I thought that I would make something special for them to enjoy.
Normally I would make a sponge cake or cookies, but recently I have been pushing the boundaries a little bit in the kitchen and decided to change things up with a tart. And boy, I’m so glad that I did!
I’m actually quite proud with how this tart came out. The addition of truvia means that it’s lower in sugar than most tarts. And if that wasn’t enough you get all of the added health benefits from the coconut oil used in the frangipane filling. Fair enough there is butter and sugar in the shop bought sweet pastry case, but I think this has been compensated for somewhat wit the rest of the tarts components. Anyway, a little butter and sugar doesn’t hurt in my humble opinion. =)
Whether served with whipped double cream, ice cream or custard this is one dessert that will more than satisfy any sweet tooth. There will be empty plates galore. Believe me!
A stupidly tasty dessert that will have everyone talking. It really is as good as it looks:
I had a slice of this with vanilla ice cream and another with a little bit of cream. Hands down I cannot decide which way I liked it best. All I know is that I will definitely be making this dessert for my family for years to come.
