Method

  • 1. For the base, process ground nuts, sugar, cornflour and butter until crumbly. Add egg yolk and pulse until mixture comes together. Knead dough gently on a floured surface until smooth. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour.

  • 2. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Grease a 22cm-round loose-based flan tin. Roll hazelnut dough between sheets of baking paper until large enough to line the tin.

  • 3. Ease dough into tin, press into base and sides, then trim the edge. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • 4. Place tin on oven tray and bake the crust for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, spread jam over crust and return to the oven for two minutes, then cool.

  • 5. Heat cream in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat, stir in the butter and chocolate, then whisk until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture into crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  • 6. Top tart with strawberries to serve.
