  • Add the flour and mix with the baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Then add oil and work everything with your fingertips until you get a sandy mixture.
  • Create a hole in the center of the mixture and proceed by adding the egg and yolk. Knead everything until you get a soft but not sticky dough.
  • Take the shortcrust pastry, form a ball, and wrap it in cling film. Let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes. After the time has passed, take it out and set aside a third.
  • Switch on the oven to 180° C (356° F).
  • Spread the remaining two-thirds on a baking paper (3 / 6mm thick) and about 30 cm in diameter. Lift it and place it in a round baking pan with a diameter of 24 cm and a 3 cm edge. Grease butter and flour on the baking dish (18 to 22 cm diameter). Coat the edges properly, probably overflowing the dough out of the pan.
  • Cut the dough exceeding the edge of the pan and add it to the one previously set aside. Prick the tart base with a fork and spread the cream on the disc of the dough evenly.
  • Pour the pastry cream filling and extend it to all the surfaces. Roll out the remaining shortcrust pastry and cut it into strips of about 2 cm in width with the smooth or serrated pastry cutter. Use these strips of shortcrust pastry to finish the tart's outer edge and form the classic central wire rack.
  • Bake the cream tart in a convection oven for 35 minutes at 180 ° C. Once the surface is golden brown, take it out of the oven and let it cool before removing it from the pan. Get the best low-calorie cake and serve it to your loved ones.
