Honey tart


For the tart crust

  • Cut the butter into cubes and set it aside.
  • In a food processor add the flour, the icing sugar, salt, the butter, and beat well. You want the mixture to look like wet sand.
  • Add the egg, the water, and beat for 1-2 minutes until there is a thick dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • Remove the dough and allow 10 minutes for it to soften.
  • Spread a piece of parchment paper on your working surface, dust it with flour and place the dough on it. Dust with more flour, cover with another piece of parchment paper and roll out the dough using a rolling pin.
  • Butter a 24 cm tart pan, transfer the dough and spread it well. Fold the dough that sticks out of the pan outwards so that the dough keeps its shape. Prick the whole surface of the dough with a fork and spread some plastic wrap. Add legumes as pie weights and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the pie weights and bake for 20 more minutes.
  • Let it cool well.

For the filling

  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 150ο C (300ο F) set to fan.
  • Place a deep frying pan over high heat.
  • Add the honey, the maple syrup, the ginger, the cinnamon, the vanilla, and let the mixture come to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and add the butter. Mix well until it melts.
  • Add the lemon zest and juice, salt, and mix.
  • In a food processor, add the bread and grind it until crumbled. Add it to the frying pan with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Transfer the whole mixture to the bottom of the tart crust and spread it well.
  • With a serrated knife, cut the dough that sticks out and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove and let it cool well.
