Step 1
  • Blend butter, flour, icing sugar, cocoa and salt in a food processor and blend for approximately 20 seconds - until the mixture is crumbled.
Step 2
  • Add egg yolks and knead quickly to create a dough. Put the dough into a loose-bottomed pie tin (approximately 22 cm in diameter) and press it well up the edges.
Step 3
  • Place the pie base covered in the refrigerator for approximately ½ hour.
Step 4
  • Prick the bottom with a fork and put the pie base in the middle of the oven to cook. Let it cool down on a baking rack.
Step 5
  • Chop the chocolate coarsely and put it in a bowl. Cut open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds. Put the vanilla pod, seeds, whipped cream and syrup in a saucepan and bring to the boil on steady heat, stirring.
Step 6
  • Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is uniform.
Step 7
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the pie base and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours. Sprinkle flake salt over the pie and serve.
