  • 300g packet Careme dark chocolate shortcrust pastry

  • 1/4 cup (25g) NESTLÉ BAKERS’ CHOICE Cocoa

  • 2 tablespoons plain flour

  • 1 tablespoon cornflour

  • 375ml can evaporated milk

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) thickened cream

  • 5 eggs, separated

  • 2 cups (440g) caster sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 50g unsalted butter, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons creme de cacao liqueur (optional)

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 23cm x 4cm-deep loose-bottomed tart pan. Use pastry to line pan, trimming any excess. Chill for 15 minutes, then line with baking paper and fill with pastry weights.

    Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the weights and paper. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until dry. Set aside to cool.Place cocoa, flour, cornflour, evaporated milk, cream, egg yolks and 2/3 cup (150g) sugar in a pan over low heat. Whisking constantly, cook for 4-5 minutes until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla, butter and creme da cacao, if using, to combine. Pour mixture into pie case and allow to cool. Chill for 2-3 hours until set.

  • Step 3

    Whisk the eggwhites and remaining 1 1/3 cups (295g) sugar in a heatproof bowl until combined. Set over a pan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water) and whisk for 3 minutes or until thickened. Place in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on medium-high speed for 5 minutes or until glossy and cooled.

  • Step 4

    Pile meringue over tart filling. Using a kitchen blowtorch, brown the meringue until golden.
