About this recipe: This recipe is based on the typical Italian-style sweet pastry that uses egg yolks. However, in this version, I have added cocoa to make a delicious chocolate pastry.


Makes: 1 pastry base for 25cm tart

  • 90g butter, frozen
  • 220g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 80g icing sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks

Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

  1. Place flour, cocoa, icing sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl; mix well.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the vanilla extract in a small bowl; add to the dry mixture and mix with a silicon spatula.
  3. Remove the butter from the freezer and coarsely grate it into the bowl. Use your fingertips to quickly combine into a ball of dough, adding a tablespoon of iced water if it's too dry.
  4. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour before using.
