Baking: Marbled Chocolate Tart/Slice

Marbled Chocolate Tart/Slice

This recipe could be very easily made gluten free by either not having any pastry and cooking it as a cake or by using gluten free flour in the pastry (or using store bought gluten free pastry). This is a very rich chocolate tart/slice

300 g Dark Chocolate (Energy Chocolate)
150g Butter
1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons Almond Meal
4 Small Eggs

Vanilla Cream Swirl
250g Low Fat Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Essence
2 Small Eggs

1. Preheat oven to 180C.

2. Roll out pastry and line a 20 x 30 cm tin (I line mine with baking paper), and blind bake pastry for 10 minutes.

3. Melt butter and chocolate using a double boiler, and add remaining filling ingredients apart from the eggs while the mixture is cooling down.

4. Combine vanilla cream cheese swirl mixture ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

5. When the mixture is at room temperature, add eggs and mix until thoroughly combined.

6. Pour chocolate filling into the pastry case and then spoon in cream chesse mixture, using a knife to then swirl it through. 

7. Bake for 40 minutes until cooked, then allow to cool.

8. After cool cut with a clean knife the slice into squares.
