Step by step

  1. Crumble the chocolate, and together with the butter melt it in a small saucepan.

  3. Separate the eggs. Beat the whites together with the salt and half of the sugar until stiff.
  4. Stir the yolks and the remaining sugar, cream, butter and chocolate mixture until light and fluffy.
  5. Stir in the flour mixed with baking powder, creating a dough.
  6. Place the beaten egg whites on the dough, and carefully fold in.
  7. Brush a non-stick coated round pan (12 inches in diameter) with oil, then cover with breadcrumbs.
  8. Place the dough in the pan, cover with a suitable lid. Bake 20-30 minutes at 175 degrees.

  10. Dust with powdered sugar. The tart is best served warm.
