Super genius, here I show you my recipe Strawberry Tart. This is a great strawberry cake based on shortcrust pastry with cream filling.
I prefer to use small cake tins. The mini look is doubly pleasing. The motto for every guest is a cake, and the impression of eating less sweets is also created 😉
Caramelized strawberries: If you want to bake something special, please take a closer look at the following instructions. I think you have found what you are looking for… Serve the strawberry dessert as dessert or serve it in the afternoon with coffee.
For a great baking experience, I have put together a step-by-step guide for you.
On geht´s, now quickly into the bakery… I wish you every success!
1. How to prepare Shortcrust Pastry Bases…
The first advantage of the small cakes is already apparent at the beginning. Since every guest gets his own cake, there is no need to cut the cake open. What is not cut can also not break.
Cakes in small forms: Practical… there is no need to cut!
Serving the cake is therefore much easier, if you also want to use a gluten-free flour mixture instead of wheat flour, you can cut the cake without any trouble.
The shortcrust pastry is a simple cake dough and can be prepared very quickly. Plenty of butter, vanilla, lemon grater and egg create a wonderful and fine dough which later harmonises perfectly with the freshness of the strawberries on the palate.
What is so special about this cake preparation? The dough goes into the moulds and is then allowed to bake blind. For this you need dried peas or beans in addition to the expected ingredients.
The dough in the pan is exceptionally given a yo-yo effect by weighing it down with the pulses!
Due to the weight, the cake dough cannot rise during baking. We call this “blind baking”.
Tarte and pea are a good team, who would have thought that?
2. Prepare Cake Dough as Filling and Topping
Now we need another great filling. This is similar to a cheesecake filling, because fresh cheese comes in.
I only like the taste of quark if it’s not too dominant. That’s why the first NY Cheesecake was a revelation for me, because I don’t like German cheesecakes so much.
Since strawberries have a very fine taste, the cream cheese fits better into the filling than quark.
The caramelized strawberries are now allowed to sleep in a luxury fresh cheese bed.
The details of the preparation can be found further down in the recipe here the summary of the work steps…
- Prepare the shortcrust pastry and bake blind in the moulds.
- Prepare the cream as a filling, then fill in and bake.
- Caramelise strawberries with sugar and cream Brulee Brenner and place on top.
The whole fun lasts about an hour, without dough resting time. It’s worth the effort, I promise!
Tips for many tartes:
You can prepare the tartes the day before and refrigerate them.
Alternatively, freeze them raw in the tartes. After 30 minutes of defrosting with the pulses, “blind bake” – then prepare and pour in the filling and bake at reduced heat until done.
