INSTRUCTIONS

 
VEGAN SUGAR DOUGH:
  • Use the flat beater of your stand mixer to whisk together almond flour, vegan butter, icing sugar, cocoa powder and salt at low speed.
  • Once homogeneous, add egg substitute little by little.
  • Once all egg is incorporated, add flour little by little.
  • Stop right when there are no more dry crumb but do not overmix.
  • If you knead the dough for too long (even with the flat beater!), it can retract during baking. Remove from the bowl.
  • Cover your dough with saran wrap and let it rest for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
  • On parchment paper, spread the 2/3 of your dough until you reach desired thickness (2 3 mm).
  • Grease your 20 cm large tart ring.
  • Use your tart ring to cut into the dough, discard the dough outside of the ring.
  • Remove the remaining 1/3 of the dough from the fridge.
  • On a lightly floured bench, spread it, aiming for a 2-3 mm thickness before cutting 2 cm large bands of it.
  • Line these bands of dough onto the outside of your tart ring and stick them to the bottom of your dough.
  • Transfer the ring with pie dough onto a baking tray.
  • Leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • With a small knife, cut any dough that could be sticking out of the ring.
  • Poke the bottom of the dough with a fork.
  • Bake for 20 min at 170°C (340°F).
  • Remove from the oven, wait 10 min for it to cool down then remove ring.
 
MANJARI BROWNIE:
  • In a small bowl, melt vegan butter with Manjari chocolate on a double boiler.
  • In another bowl, whisk together vegan eggs, vanilla extract and brown sugar.
  • Add melted chocolate and butter to your eggs.
  • Finally add sifted all-purpose flour and almond flour and whisk.
  • Pour into your baked tart shell up to 1/3 of its height.
  • Bake the shell with brownie for 8 min at 170°C (340°F). Let it cool down for at least 10 min before proceeding.
 
AMATIKA GANACHE:
  • Melt Amatika chocolate on a double boiler.
  • In a small pan, bring coconut milk and vanilla extract to a boil.
  • Pour hot coconut milk onto Amatika chocolate and whisk.
  • Use an immersion blender to perfect the emulsion.
  • Pour onto the tart shell with brownie.
  • Let the ganache crystallize in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until hard.
 
VEGAN MERINGUE:
  • With a hand mixer or the whisk of your stand mixer, whisk aquafaba with icing sugar to hard peaks (it will become white as well). This should take approximately 7-8 minutes.
  • With a piping bag and a round piping tip, pipe on your chilled ganache.
 
NB::
  • Keep the tart in the fridge and eat it the same day.
  • You can do all the steps up to the meringue and keep your tart in the fridge for a day until you pipe the meringue. However, once you pipe the meringue, you must eat the cake immediately.
