CHAI CUSTARD TART | The Kitchy Kitchen. To me, the perfect custard is about the eggs. It should be silky smooth, rich, and with that undeniably round flavor eggs impart on whatever they touch. Nestled in a crisp tart crust and infused with a touch of chai spices, this custard is the perfect understated dessert to serve with a cup of tea. Enjoy! 3 large eggs, plus 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten 2 ounces white sugar 1 3/4 cup half and half 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 vanilla bean, deseeded (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract) 2 green cardamom pods 2-3 whole black peppercorns 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds 1-2 pieces cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 par-baked tart crust (recipe below) Pre heat oven to 425F. In a large bowl beat the eggs and egg yolks lightly with the sugar. Place the tart onto a baking sheet and bake in the center of the preheated oven for 10 minutes to brown the pastry. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon kosher salt 8 ounces unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water.

White Chocolate Blondies with Maple Cream Sauce {Applebee’s Copycat} Warm out of the oven white chocolate blondies that get topped with a scoop of ice cream and drizzled with a maple cream sauce. This is one amazing dessert! Let’s be honest. Applebee’s isn’t quite a five star restaurant. It has good food. I fell in love with their blondies ages ago. They are served warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream melting on top. I could drink this stuff. This is such a great dessert.

And yes, like most of you, I am seriously addicted to all ice cream. I decided to make a rendition of it in the form of a no-bake cheesecake, and this yummy recipe turned out amazing!

It’s ridiculous, really. I’m always looking for any and every excuse to buy a bag of cookies from the grocery store. The best excuse I’ve come up with so far is that I need to buy this bag of cookies to make a dessert with cookies in/on/all over them.

Related: Milk Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies. I tell myself that I can’t possibly make a good dessert if I don’t have cookies to make a dessert with. It makes the most sense, if you think about it (while standing in the cookie aisle, hungry, so hungry). It’s my work. Key ingredients are simple: a box of rice cereal, a big bag of marshmallows, butter (lots), lemon zest and vanilla sandwich cookies because we’re fancy (and we were standing in the cookie aisle too long). Tron (yes, my cat) is a huge fan of marshmallows. Butter, marshmallows and lemon zest are melted until goupy, sticky, messy, melted, just right. You know the deal here: rice cereal, crumbled cookies, and the lemony melted marshmallows!

A sticky stir to bring it all together. Kommentarer. Vit kladdchokladtårta med varma hallon. Lemon Tart. Lemon tart is one of those dessert classics. Personally, I’m more of a chocolate lover, but I can appreciate the tart, fresh, vibrancy of a slice of zingy lemon tart after a heavy meal. I’ve posted these little lemon tarts on the blog before. They’ve been super popular with you guys, and with the super flaky and easy pastry, it’s not hard to see why! Then last week we visited Mr Man’s grandparents, and took home a haul of citrus, avocados, herbs and greens from their amazing vegetable garden. With more lemons than I know what to do with (literally), I decided it was about time I made a large, more traditional lemon tart for the blog. This recipe combines my favourite, buttery, sweet shortcrust pastry (you might remember it from this baked custard tart), and the best, creamiest, lemon tart filling I’ve ever come across.

The filling finds the right balance between smooth and creamy, and tart and refreshing. Lemon Tart Pastry recipe adapted from Tartine. Like this: Like Loading... Related. Baked Chocolate Truffle Oreo Dream Tart. This tart is quite literally what dreams are made of. So much so, that it just HAD to have the word dream in the title. In my spare time, I love flipping through food magazines and cookbooks, looking over recipes and getting inspired. Rarely do I actually bake anything from the magazines, and very rarely is a recipe I do bake worth ever making a second time.

But this recipe? This recipe was the exception to the general rule. This recipe was in one of those tiny little side-panels in a UK copy of Good Housekeeping magazine I spotted on Mr Man’s Mum’s coffee table. The decadent looking (albeit tiny) picture caught my eye, as did the easy method, so I took a photo and tried it out at work a few weeks later. And it blew me away.

I’ve baked it again and again at work, and it has quickly became a staff favourite, something that people flock to with forks at the ready when there’s a leftover or imperfect looking slice on offer. This particular version was baked for my dad for Father’s Day. Related. Raspberry S’mores Gateau. Honestly, I have to say that this is one of the best things that has ever come out of my kitchen. It was based on a s’mores cake that I saw on Hint of Vanilla that looked so drool worthy I just had to make my own version of it. I decided my dad’s birthday would be the perfect occasion to do so, because as we learnt last week, he absolutely loves chocolate. And raspberries. And raspberries and chocolate together, so raspberries just had to feature as well. The base of the cake is a salty-sweet-buttery graham mixture that I’ve recently fallen in love with. Then the chocolate crémeux centre. And then, the whole thing gets even more insanely good with a thick layer of fluffy, cloud-like Swiss meringue that gets piled on top and then torched.

Now imagine all those flavours and textures together: luscious, chocolate-ice-cream-like custard + salty, buttery, crumbly cookie base + refreshing, tart raspberries + the lightest, most dream-like, toasted marshmallow you’ve ever had. Like this: Related. Mango Cheesecake Tart. Cheesecake is a lovely, simple dessert that I’ve really gotten into lately. I particularly love this version! I’ve been making it for ages, and don’t know why I haven’t posted it for you sooner. This isn’t a fridge-set cheesecake, that requires time and gelatin for it to hold. And it isn’t a baked cheesecake that needs to cool in the oven for hours so it doesn’t crack. No, this is a whip-and-you’re-done kind of cheesecake, that is creamy, smooth, and nicely tangy in contrast to the fresh fruit that goes so well piled on top.

It’s so easy to make! It’s so great piled into a pre-baked tart shell, like I have done here. It’s SO easy. P.S. FOR THE SWEET SHORTCRUST PASTRY: 125g unsalted butter, softened 100g caster (superfine) sugar ¼ tsp salt 1 eggs 250g plain flour FOR THE TART FILLING: 250g packet cream cheese 70g icing (powdered) sugar 300ml double cream 3 mangoes Pastry recipe adapted from Tartine.

Cola cake has intrigued me for years… it seems to be somewhat of a southern specialty and I’ve always been drawn to its similarity with Texas sheet cake (another Southern specialty). I’ve been obsessed with Texas sheet cake since taking my first bite of that utterly amazing boiled frosting that sets up like fudge on top of a warm cake.

Talk about heaven. This Coca-Cola cake is made in much the same way, except it also includes a can of cola in both the batter and in the frosting. It’s subtle, but you can totally taste the cola when you eat the cake, and I love the unique flavor. As if you would need any other reason to make this cake, but it can be accomplished using just one bowl, one small saucepan and a measuring cup. Low maintenance is always a big selling point for me! Let’s go ahead and talk about the elephant in the room and get it out of the way now… this cake contains a lot of sugar. Baked Chocolate Truffle Oreo Dream Tart. Little Blueberry Tarts. Every Sunday night, we have a family dinner at my grandma’s house. She and my aunt make dinner. It is usually a big meal, typically Greek food (that’s the Greek side of my family) and always accompanied by a big salad, freshly baked bread and Greek pies, called pita.

My aunt, who has her own blog called Simplest Most Delicious Food, always makes something delicious for dessert. There has been things like coffee panna cotta, strawberry crumble, lemon tart and creme caramel. I typically work all day on Saturdays and Sundays, and hardly ever have the time to bake something special to take (because although I’ve always got some underbaked chewy cookies around, not everyone shares my love for them!). It was nice being able to take something for dessert, to say thank you for all those dinners, to share my food with my family too. The tartlets were a hit.

Meyer Lemon Cheesecake. Perfect Peach Pie. Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake. Blueberry Almond Tart. The other morning Taylor and I awoke feeling rather blue. Not because the cats decided to use our bodies as early-morning spring boards; rather, we had blueberries on the brain. That’s the best kind of blue. So, in spite of the heat, we put on our grubby clothes, loaded up on bug spray, and headed out to the country for a good ol’ fashioned blueberry-pickin’ date. The fields were swarming with bugs, but the bushes were hanging heavy with ripe berries. It didn’t take us long to pick two whole buckets of beautiful blues. Actually, we probably picked two and a half buckets, if you count all the ‘snacks’ we had along the way (those are free, right?)

Yes, we were dripping by the end of it, but it was well worth the blood, sweat, and tears. Once we got home I realized just how many blueberries we actually picked. And since one can only have so much jam (don’t worry, I made plenty, and will be posting about that shortly!) Let’s talk about this tart. Blueberry Almond Tart Total Time: 24 hours.
