Austrian coffee tart

How to make Austrian coffee tart recipe - Preparation time: approx. 20 minutes (plus baking and chilling time)

Makes 14 slices

140 g butter
140 g flour
40 g ground almonds
40 g sugar
1 tsp instant coffee powder
4 egg whites
250 g icing sugar
butter for the baking tin

Thoroughly grease a springform (24 cm diameter) with butter. Melt the butter in a pan and knead to a smooth dough with the flour, almonds and sugar.

Roll out the pastry to the size of the springform and put into the form. Leave to rest in the fridge for 1 hour. Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C (Gas Mark 6) (do not use fan oven settings). Bake the tart base in the oven on the second shelf from the bottom for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 170 °C (Gas Mark 3).

Stir the coffee powder into the egg whites. Whip the egg whites until stiff and then gradually sprinkle in the icing sugar, stirring well. Turn the mixture onto the still warm tart base and bake for a further 30 minutes. Leave to cool on a cooling rack.

You can also make petits fours from the same recipe: bake the cake in a baking tin (25 x 20 cm), cut into squares and coat with light or dark chocolate – the light filling is a surprise concealed under the firm chocolate coating.
