Recipe: Berry Porridge TartJuly 19, 2021
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, currants, … – the variety of delicious berries in summer is just so wide. And the range of recipes for what you can do with these fruits is just as diverse. Whether you use them pure as a topping for your porridge to sweeten your healthy breakfast or cook jam with them – they always taste delicious.
Berries can also play a key role in baking. In this berry tart recipe, we used Verival Blackberry Porridge for the shortcrust base and didn’t skimp on the berries on top.
The fruity tart
Here you will find all the ingredients and preparation steps for this tart:
Fruity Porridge Tart
- 150 g Butter
- 80 g Dark chocolate e.g., with 65% cocoa
- 60 g Verival Blackberry Porridge
- 180 g Spelt flour
- 150 g Brown sugar
- 1 Pinch Salt
- 60 g Hazelnuts ground
- 4 Eggs
- 60 g Sour cream
- 160 g Cream cheese
- 80 g Berry jam e.g., strawberry, forest fruit or similar
- 300 g Fresh berries
For the dough
- Melt the butter. Chop the chocolate. Mix the flour, porridge, sugar, salt, chopped chocolate, and ground hazelnuts. Add the melted butter and mix with the dough hook of a food processor or hand mixer until a crumbly dough forms.
- Grease a tart tin (Ø 24 cm). Spread the dough in the tin and press down evenly with your hands. Form a 2 cm high rim around the edge of the pastry. Chill the pastry for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
For the cream
- Mix the eggs, sour cream, cream cheese, and jam to a smooth cream. Then spread the cream on the tart base.
- Bake the pastry in the preheated oven on the second shelf from the bottom for 30-35 minutes. Remove and leave to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes.
For the topping
- Wash the berries and pat dry. Arrange on top of the tart.
Which berries are suitable for the topping?
Whether pleasantly tart or sweet – it’s up to you to decide which berries you would like to add to the tart. However, it’s best to check which berries are in season or to use frozen berries. If properly frozen, berries will last forever. Because of their high water content, fresh berries go mouldy relatively quickly as soon as they are even minimally damaged. So when you buy berries, make sure they are plump, dry on the outside, without dents and without mould. Berries are sensitive to pressure.
How healthy are berries?
Berries are good for your health in general and for your memory and heart in particular. The darker the berry, the healthier it is. The plant substance that gives the small fruits their rich colour has a general anti-inflammatory effect and strengthens the immune system.
Berries also contain water-soluble plant substances that have an antioxidant effect. They repair damaged body cells and protect the body from damage by free radicals.
And because they consist largely of water, they are also low in calories.
So berries not only taste delicious, they are also healthy. And they can be combined in any way you like.
Have fun baking and enjoying!
