Spelt mango-apricot pancake tart

Difficulty: Medium




Preparation (min)


Total (min)


Pancake spelt base

  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) honey
  • 1 1/2 cup (375 ml) spelt flour
  • 2 tsp. (10 ml) baking powder
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

Mango-apricot jelly

  • 2 cups (500 ml) thick apricot nectar
  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) agar-agar flakes (see Note)
  • 10 oz. (300 g) mango (2 mangoes), cut into approx. 1/4 in. (0.5 cm) cubes

White chocolate ganache

  • 3 tbsp. (45 ml) whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup (160 ml) chopped white chocolate


  1. Prepare the base: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter a round glass or ceramic 9 in. (23 cm) pie plate. Line a square 8 x 8 in. (20 x 20 cm) cake pan with plastic wrap.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix in honey, spelt flour, baking powder, milk and egg with a spatula to make a smooth dough. Transfer dough to pie plate. Spread dough evenly across bottom of plate and bake until deep golden, 30 to 35 min. Remove from plate and let cool on a cake rack.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the jelly: In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine apricot nectar and agar-agar flakes, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer mixture until flakes are completely dissolved, 5 to 10 min. Mix in mango cubes.
  4. Pour mixture into plastic-wrapped cake pan and refrigerate until jelly is set, about 40 min.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the ganache: In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the cream, making sure it doesn’t boil. Put chocolate in a small heat-resistant bowl and slowly pour hot cream over chocolate, mixing with a wooden spoon until chocolate completely melts. Using a hand-held mixer, whip ganache until smooth, about 30 sec. Set aside.
  6. Transfer spelt pancake base to a cake plate. Spread base with ganache.
  7. Remove jelly from pan and cut into 3/4 in. (2 cm) cubes. Top ganache evenly with jelly cubes.

 Note: Agar-agar flakes are sold in health food stores, Asian grocery stores and most supermarkets.
