Introduction

Have you ever tried a crunchy tart before, a tart that’s full of custard and berries? How tasty that is!

   I have to say that making tart shell is easy but making a tasty and crunchy tart might be difficult, that’s why we’re trying different recipes and ingredients to make a tart’s lovers’ tart.

Do you know that the ingredients in making tart shell is very simple, just flour, sugar,salt,baking powder,butter and milk?

The ingredients might be simple, learning the technique took a period of time to learn, I’m not making the perfect shell yet and i’m still practicing since i was a young boy.

I remembered that when i was young, i ate an egg tart. That egg tart was brilliant coz the tart shell is a cookie dough and I love cookies very much.

Starting at that day, I started to learn pastries from the internet  and cook books. Most of them are useless coz the details are not clear, I was like watching comics without pictures.

That’s one of the the reasons why I went to a culinary school, to learn pastries. I was amazed by the equipment in the kitchen and of cos the chefs are professional.

In the culinary school, I learnt how to make the tart case, not the cookie dough version but a Pâte Brisé, it’s something tasted like danish .

After I graduated from the culinary school, I went to work at the hotel and learnt a better version of Pâte Brisée and that’s the rich tart shell, the flavor of the tart is amazing although that’s just a tart.

  Like I said, tart shells use simple ingredients but the technique is complicated.

Starting from the basic, this kinds of dough need to use cake flour that’s cold because we want to make the dough less elastic.

If you’re still with me, let’s see the ingredients and start working.

cake flour 210g

sugar 6g

salt 2g

baking powder 2g

butter 84g

milk 120g

Dough

In order to make the dough, we store the cake flour in the freezer so the cake flour will lose the gluten while we’re kneading it.

  Measure the salt, cake flour and baking powder in the mixing bowl and mix them in the mixing bowl with a paddle.

  After we’re mixing the cake flour mixture, we’re doing this in an old fashion way, we add the butter and mix until we reach a sandy texture.

Then, we pour in the milk into the mixture and continue mixing it until it forms a dough.

After making a lovely dough, we transfer the dough on the baking paper and freeze it for at least 1 hour to rest it.

Then we take the dough out of the freezer and roll out to about 2mm thick

Cover the circle mold and start kneading on the side and the edges to fix the dough in place, trim the excess dough.

Be gentle with the dough.

Baking

We’re baking these with rice on top so the rice is dense enough to prevent the puffing of the tart shell.

Introduction

Have you ever tried a special sponge cake? For example, lime sponge, orange sponge, olive oil sponge and basil sponge. These sponges are something that has a unique taste.

When we heard of sponge, we will think of a traditional sponge cake thatW use the ingredients of eggs, sugar, cake flour and fats. In this post, we will introduce and explain how to make a fluffy sponge cake that tastes nice and has a airy texture.

We remember that the first sponge cake we made very very dense and it was hard as rock and dry as tissue paper. We learnt from website, youtube or even from recipes in the library. Unfortunately, none of these solve the problem.

After a lot of researches, we met with chefs that bake sponge cake everyday and asked for the solution, he just said a few words,”the ingredients in making a sponge cake is simple but the method you use affect the result”. This sounds really interesting and we asked him how, chef said that it’s really important to make a fluffy base and a gentle fold of ingredients at the end.

After that interview, we went back to the the kitchen and tried to make our sponge cake. It’s a unique sponge cake that made with caramel, a sponge that’s bittersweet.

In this recipe, we’ll be using an ingredient called caramel powder, you can see how to make the caramel powder hereIf you had already made the caramel powder, you can continue reading the caramel sponge cake recipe.
