Note: Our oven is fan assisted so the temperature and cooking time is what worked for us, It may vary for other ovens.

  1. Turn on the oven to 190 degrees centigrade
  2. Butter the tart tin or case. You may also want to put baking paper to make it easier to pull it out at the end.
  3. Put the eggs, flour, butter, salt and ricotta in a blender. Mix until soft.
  4. Roll the shortcrust pastry as per the pack instructions. Cover the tart tin with it and pour the mix in.
  5. Put in the oven for 50 minutes or until cooked. The top will crack a little during the cooking process and that’s fine.
  6. When cooked, remove from the oven and let it cool down. This tart is best served cold or at room temperature
