Thermomix Strawberry Tart with Lemon Custard: Spring Enchantment Cake

Thermomix Strawberry Tart with Lemon Custard

A cake to celebrate the very close Mother's Day? Here it is a Strawberry Tart with Lemon Custard to wish all the mothers a happy day! A special wish goes to those who are becoming mum or who would like to be a mum but she is not yet!

For me it is a more important day because last year I discovered I was going to have another baby!

Many years ago I created this tart for my mother to celebrate her Mother's day in a special way. I got inspired simply by those fantastic tarts I used to see in confectioneries and by those mini cakes with a shortcrust pastry base, a custard filling and a strawberry on top of each.

I called it "Spring Enchantment" that time I used to give the cakes I was preparing a name...

Obviously I usually prepared it in spring when strawberries are still seasonal. It does not seem good for breakfast. My husband says it is perfect eaten after luch. But I must say I'm always happy to wake up in the morning and have this cake for breakfast...!

If you're looking for other tarts recipes I suggest these ones: the Jam Tart, the Sweet Ricotta Cheese and Custard Tart with Chocolate.

If you are gluten intolerant, you can replace the custard recipe I wrote here with the other Gluten-Free one.

Have a good Mother's Day!
