Tarte passion framboise: Raspberry Passion fruit Tart, Beautiful tart from beautiful book.

I still try to test the recipe from my (too many) cookbooks, I know that I still have a lot to try, and a lot to taste (hehehe, the best part of baking is eating, right?). So, I feel my day that has 24 hours is very short, because I can bake only 2-3 things a day, ^^.

  For this time, my tart recipe come from: ................ (my book is in French but there is an English edition now you can see it........), the book that I really want to have and then I kept it in my bookshelf, haha. I take it out of the shelf from time to time, the book is very beautiful or I can say that it's too beautiful to use it in the kitchen. So, the place that I always put it is in my bed (^^, it's my bed time story book, plus I always have a "sweet" dream). There are many recipe that I want to try but finally I think that I have to put my hands on, because just reading it won't help. I copy the recipe into my notebook (in my bed, haha), and yes, now I can put my notebook on the counter without staining the book. I choose to make "Tarte passion framboise or Raspberry Passion fruit Tart". I don't have to say the reason, right? Because you should know that I love passion fruit^^. But at last I make too many adaptation from the original recipe, starting from the almond pastry. I use the one that I adapt from other book, for this pastry, the first time is not impressing so I adjust it to suit my taste and now I love it, it's very easy to make and because of the almond in the dough so it prevent the pastry to become too compact.
But the most challenge part is the Crème passion, it's the butter rich passion fruit curd (I never made this kind of curd before), I think the filling will be very rich and I'm right about it. The finishing tart is very rich and very delicious too, ^^. I suggest you to eat a small piece of the tart and each bite with 3 parts of the composition, almond tart shell, Crème passion, and the raspberry, and it will be too delicious to stop. I found that many people who tasted it say the same, they think it's rich but they just can't stop eating it, haha. Anyway, I suggest you to cut the tart into small wedge than usual and serve with hot tea (I eat it with red berry tea, and it's delicious), people will ask for more of it, don't worried. I know it's sound crazy, I really want to try all the recipe that I have on my books but I can't, and never ever. But just try one recipe at a time can make me happy ^^, and I know that you're happy to join my testing journey too, right?

The recipe comes from Laduree book, you can find it in English by now.

Lulu said...

This looks amazing, I've tasted the original tart at Laduree Paris and it was so refreshing.I was wondering if i could omit the raw egg white or substitute it with something else? also I don't have sheet gelatin where I live,could I substitute powder gelatin or vegetarian alternative and how much to use? Thanks

Hi, Lulu
Actually the egg white will be cooked when contacts with the hot tart shell so you don't have to worry^^.
You can use powder gelatin instead the amount will be the same but you will need 2 tsp of water to soften it.

Lulu said...

Hi again:
Thanks for your reply,so I will dissolve 2 g of powder gelatin in 2 tsp water then use it. i also wanted to ask how many passion fruits I should buy approximately to get the required 60 g puree since i don't have ready made puree where i live ? thanks

dailydelicious said...

Hi, Lulu
One passion fruit will give you about 10 ml (or 10g), so you will need 6-7 passion fruit for this recipe.
