Recipe by: Marli Roberts

Serves: 4-6
Preparation time: 30min
Cooking time: 15min
1 sheet all butter puff pastry

400 g organic dark chocolate
500 ml double thick cream
4 egg yolks
10 ml citrus zest
5 ml orange blossom water

Caramelised citrus slices
A variety of citrus like orange, naartjie, lemon, lime and grapefruit. , sliced
Icing sugar

Pre heat the oven to 200°C.  Roll a sheet of puff pastry out to fit a loose bottom 23 – 25 cm baking tray, with the pastry coming up the sides.  Roughly pinch the pastry on the outer edge to make a rim. Prick the pastry with a fork and top with a sheet of baking paper. Fill with rice and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the rice and paper and bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Place the chocolate and cream in a saucepan and melt over low heat until smooth.  Remove from heat and whisk in the egg yolks. Fold the zest through and orange blossom water. Spoon into the baked shell.

Caramelised citrus slices
Pre heat the oven grill to a maximum temperature. Use a baking tray and place a single layer of sliced citrus on the tray. Dust generously with icing sugar and place under grill or use a chef’s blowtorch.  Grill until caramelised and garnish just before serving. Serve immediately because the sugar will gradually melt.
