Lemon Hazelnut Chocolate Praline Tart

  • Vegetarian Diet

    Diet based on cereals, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits and other animal foods such as honey and eggs. Excludes meat, fish, mollusks.


  • Preheat oven 200* C (392* F) Fan (you will lower the temperature later on).

For the tart base

  • Process the graham crackers along with the hazelnuts in a food processor until they have completely broken down. Add the sugar and lemon zest and continue processing. Add the egg yolks and beat. Add the melted butter, last. We want the base to have the same taste as the filling, that’s why we are adding the lemon zest and hazelnuts.
  • Transfer to a 28 cm tart pan, preferably with a collapsible base. Spread the dough over the base and sides (as high up as possible) by using your hands and press down with a glass to make compact.
  • Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes, until you make the filling.

For the filling

  • Beat the condensed milk with the aid of a hand whisk instead of a mixer. Add a small amount of lemon juice at a time and continue whisking. The cream will start to thicken and since each lemon has a different level of acidity, it will depend on your own preference how much lemon you will add. When you have added the amount of lemon you like, add the egg yolks.
  • At this point you can add the food coloring for a brighter color. This is optional.
  • Remove tart base from refrigerator.
  • Use 2 spoons to mold the hazelnut-chocolate praline sauce into small balls and place them on the tart base at close intervals.
  • Pour the filling in, around the balls of hazelnut-chocolate praline sauce.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is firm.
  • You can make a meringue with the leftover egg whites to decorate the top of the tart. If you do, bake at 230* C (446* F) Fan for 2-3 minutes, to pasteurize and give the meringue peaks a lovely golden color.
  • Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 2-3 hours.
  • Slice and serve.
