A fluffy soufflé tart filled with homemade salted caramel: Commit to this project and reap untold benefits.

If you’re going to make a foray into the art of French patisserie, you’re going to need help from a very experienced, classically trained pastry chef with a killer blog. Baking master Edd Kimber’s book, Patisserie Made Simple, is the next best thing to having your very own culinary tutor, so pick up a copy and some flour and get ready to soufflé.

To be totally honest, this isn’t a classic French recipe. It is, however, inspired by two very French ideas — chocolate mousse and salted caramel — and it uses them to create one of my all-time favorite recipes. Rather innocent-looking, these tartlets are filled with a layer of liquid salted caramel and topped with a layer of chocolate mousse that is baked, so that when you cut into the tartlet you get a light-as-a-feather chocolate cake with a liquid caramel filling.
