Okay. Before we start to rave about this raw pumpkin-white-chocolate tart…
Can we please talk briefly about the phenomenon autumn 2018? I can’t remember the last time I saw such a colourful, sunny October/November.
Many people (and yes, myself included) are quite perplexed, considering that temperatures are well above average and we are in one of the warmest years since the weather records.
But it would probably be pretty crazy not to enjoy the bright colours, rustling heaps of leaves and bright days, wouldn’t it?
I find it really hard to stay in the presence of people who have made it their mission to spread bad moods in this dream weather, as it goes sooo downhill, with our climate.
Guys. Don’t get me wrong. It is really alarming how the situation has become more and more acute in recent years. However, the critical situation of the climate does not change with a bad mood, but rather with a conscious, environmentally friendly way of life (saving energy, buying regional and seasonal products, avoiding plastic, etc.).
So let me see your biggest smile and get yourself outside to enjoy the beautiful fall!
Enough small talk about the weather. Let’s get to the actual reason for your visit, the no-bake pumpkin-white-chocolate tart, an ode to this golden autumn.
I have to admit, I really did it well. OH YES. The creams are perfect in their consistency and the ingredients couldn’t work better together.
Each layer is a taste experience in itself: the crust of crunchy hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds, mixed with dates that taste like caramel.
The creamy layer of white chocolate and cashews that melts in your mouth.
The bright orange pumpkin cream with autumnal spices such as cinnamon and cardamom.
I. Can. Not.
AND, this pumpkin-white-chocolate tart is not baked. Like raw. Like super easy and quick to make. Like Mmm. Mmmm. Mmmmmm.
TIP: If you still prefer the crust to crunch nicely, you can simply use the recipe of my chocolate chestnut tart instead of this crust. Just leave out the cocoa powder and replace the spelt flakes with pumpkin seeds.
