This weekend I was almost going to let my cooking be, and plan to do double cooking the next week to make up for it.
But I didn't want to fall into a bad habit, so I tried to think of something super quick.
I was about to make some pie dough, when my mum reminded me that I had a disc still in the freezer from the last tart (a surprise special post that's coming).
The filling is foolproof... it really doesn't take a genius to put these three things together. I had had them in a grilled sandwich before (melty, gooey, warm heaven), so why not in a tart?
The delight of this tart is its tiny size. A smidge of dough, a couple of speculaas biscuits, the remainder of my little jar of almond butter, and some chocolate shavings in the fridge left over from my sister's oreo parfaits.
And what tops it off, is how it's gone in a few minutes. Divided into four it gives each person a cute teatime snack to enjoy... no gargantuan dessert calling out from the fridge every. single. day. for a week.
I also whipped up a nutella mug cake on Saturday for breakfast.
I was so bored of normal eggs, but I knew that I'd need something filling, since I was going out all day. (How I wish muffins and cereal and chocolate toasts filled me up...)
So nutella with an egg snuck in? Yes please.
It was fluffy, light and satisfying. I figured our microwave is pretty strong, so that's why most of my mug cakes have come out so chewy before. I put this in for 30 seconds less than advised, and it was exactly how it should have been. Imagine if I did it for even less: gooey nutella :)
Enjoy your week (and some chocolate.)
I put cooking in inverted commas, because everything was already made. But nonetheless satisfying.
The dough is from Lottie + Doof, the layer on the bottom is made of crushed speculaas (dutch spiced biscuits, which can easily be homemade), the almond butter is my own, and the chocolate is melted Cadbury's Dairy Milk Silk and some milk.

Remember that microwave power varies drastically. It take a little bit of trial and error to figure out the time and power to get the right cake texture. But once you figure it out, you’ll always know.
