Dark Chocolate Tart

1 cup almond meal/flour
12 ounces dark chocolate (60%)
1 cup chopped almonds
1 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon cointreau
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 eggs, room temperature
1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt

Preheat oven to 200 F.

Combine chocolate, butter, cointreau, and vanilla essence in a bowl over a pot of boiling water to melt. Remove and beat in eggs, one at a time until well combined and smooth.

Fold the wet ingredients into the chopped almonds, almond meal/flour and flour to combine. Spoon mixture into a lined, deep, round, springform cake tin.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the top of the cake is set.  Remove from the oven to cool.

1/3 cup greek yogurt
1 cup dark chocolate

In a small heatproof bowl, combine the ingredients and whisk over a pot of boiling water until smooth and melted. Pour all over the cake and spread with a knife to fully coat. 

WARNING! This is an extremely rich and delicious tart!

This looks so tempting. Nothing like fudgey chocolate and cashews! Also the addition of the cointreau makes this even more delicious. Yum!

I was just wondering, you never mentioned how much almonds to use in your listing of ingrediants...also what happened to the cashew nuts? and do u mix the almonds with the wet ingrediants?

after the frosting do you put it into the refrigerator or bake it some more?

sorry, just some questions i had. Thank you for the recipe, I can't wait to try it out.

I'm so sorry! I make this tart with different nuts. This time round it was almonds but I for some reason I wrote cashews. Once you frost the tart. No need to bake it again. Keep it in the refrigerator. It's very rich and chocolaty! :)

I have one more question. do you add nuts into it or is it almond meal flour? sorry i dont bake very much but i would love to try this recipe for this years thanksgiving dinner dessert. thank you for your help.

Almond meal is all you need. It's almond grounded up super fine to use in place of flour. Good luck! :)
