Ingredients

  • 60 g rice flour *
  • 25 g cocoa
  • 30 g full fat milk powder *
  • 170 g caster sugar superfine
  • 110 g butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 100 g dark chocolate * finely chopped
  • 125 g raspberries *

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 Degrees C (350 F).
  • Melt the butter.
    Using the butter you have melted, with a pastry brush, lightly grease 30 holes of mini muffin tins.*
  • Chop the chocolate finely. 
  • Sift the dry ingredients (including the chocolate) into a bowl and mix well.
    Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the cooled butter.
  • Add the vanilla and the beaten eggs.
    Stir to combine.
  • Spoon into the tin, filling about ¾ full.
  • Gently push 1 raspberry into the centre of the mixture.
    Bake 12-15 minutes.
  • Gently press the little tarts, they will feel springy when done. You can also test with a fine skewer or toothpick; if it comes out mostly dry but with a very small amount of chocolate the tarts will be done.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the tarts to cool about 10 minutes.
    Carefully remove them from the tin and place on a cooling rack.
    Do not let them cool completely in the tin – they may be difficult to remove.
  • Dust with icing/confectioners’ sugar to serve.

Notes

*I buy packets of rice flour from an Asian grocery – it is very finely ground. Some rice flour in supermarkets is gritty.
*Don’t be deterred by the milk powder, it is used in many recipes for White Christmas and I will be sharing some other recipes which use it.
*Good quality chocolate is essential; I use Lindt 70% dark chocolate.
*This will vary slightly depending on the size of the raspberries.
*The eventual number of tarts will depend on the size of the mini muffin tins. I have 3 trays and they are all different sizes. I made these in the smallest size.
