Raspberry Chocolate and Macadamia Tart with a Sweet Cinnamon Crust

At the moment the thing I love to bake most are tarts. They are just so very pretty! I made this raspberry chocolate and macadamia nut tart with a cinnamon crust. It was mostly everything I had left in my fridge, and I got so inspired and put it all together.....I was super happy with it, and have continued to be super happy with it every night for desert since.


I found this old photo of myself yesterday from when I used to live back in Noosa. I'm so mini with such red hair. It was at this tiny cafe I worked at for a while when I was nineteen. I was the only chef there, and had no idea what I was doing. Most of the time I was just making it up as I went along. Such good times.


This is the present I gave to a friend this week for her birthday. I thought it looked so festive! 




Anyway.......here is the recipe for the tart I made....Hope you enjoy it!!




Chocolate and Raspberry Macadamia Tart with a Sweet Cinnamon Crust


Cinnamon Crust:

150g of plain flour

100g butter

50g of sugar

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1 egg yolk



  • Crumb together butter sugar and flour until it resembles breadcrumbs, also add the cinnamon!
  • Add the egg and bring the mix together. Give it a quick knead if its still crumbly, but really try not to overwork it. 
  • Wrap the dough in cling foil and rest in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  • Once it is rested roll out the dough into a tart tin. Rest in the fridge for another half an hour.
  • Prick all over with a fork and line with baking paper and baking weights.
  • Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180.
  • Remove baking weights and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.

1 1/4 cup of cream

200g of chocolate

  • Take off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until smooth and all the chocolate is melted.
  • Whisk eggs and pour chocolate mix over the top. Whisk together.
  • Sprinkle some raspberries over the baked crust.
  • Pour over the chocolate mix and sprinkle the nuts on top
