I love food, I love cooking, I love baking!!! There is just something about the smell of freshly baking cookies and cake that seems to call to me every time. It is almost an obsessive need to flow with that scent that lingers in the air and just have it all around you all the time. Baking was something I had grown up around and pretty much forgotten about since awhile. I have had my mum experiment with so many different cakes and dishes which made me want to try some for myself.
1.Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Roll the pastry out on a lightly
floured surface and use to line a 20cm loose-bottomed tart tin. Fill the tart
with baking paper and baking beans, bake for 25 mins, then remove the baking
paper and beans. Continue to cook for 10 mins more until golden. Remove from
the oven and cool.
2.Melt the chocolate and butter together in a large bowl over a pan of
simmering water. Whisk the eggs and maple syrup together, then stir into the
chocolate with most of the nuts. Pour into the tart shell, top with the
remaining nuts and bake for 30-40 mins until set. Cool and serve with vanilla
ice cream or double cream.
