Chocolate Tart with Dried Fruit
Preparation Time: 50 mins

For the chocolate tart
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C conventional heat. Line the bottom of a 24 cm spring-form pan with baking paper, lightly grease the side of the pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
2. Roughly chop the couverture chocolate and melt in a metal bowl over a suitably sized pan containing a little boiling water.
3. Separate the eggs and first put the egg whites into the mixing bowl of the MaxxiMUM. Use the beating whisk. Select the automatic function on the display and set the dial to S for SensorControl. The MaxxiMUM will now whip the egg whites until they reach the perfect stiffness and then turn off automatically.
4. Thoroughly mix in a third of the sugar, then add another 100 g sugar by tablespoons and beat at setting 7 until the mixture has absorbed the sugar and has a silky sheen.
5. Either remove the egg white or use a second mixing bowl to beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar at setting 7 for 4 minutes until creamy and fluffy.
6. In the meantime, dice the dried fruit. Add the egg white, couverture chocolate and fruit to the egg yolk crème, sieve on flour and cinnamon and carefully mix using the MaxxiMUM's silicone stirring whisk at setting 1.
7. Fill the mixture into the springform pan and put it into the oven on the middle shelf. Bake for 50 minutes until the tart is crispy on the outside and still moist on the inside. Take the springform pan out of the oven and remove the side. Allow the tart to cool, then slide it onto a cake plate and dust with cocoa powder and icing sugar.
