Step 1

1. Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C).

Step 2

Tip: Make sure your oven is fully preheated before baking to ensure even cooking.

Step 3

2. Combine the whole grain wheat flour, coconut flakes, butter, and cane sugar in a bowl. Mix until well combined.

Step 4

Tip: Use cold butter for a flakier crust.

Step 5

3. Spread the dough evenly on the bottom and sides of a 35cm x 12cm (13.80 x 4.72 inch) tart dish. Press firm to form a compact base.

Step 6

Tip: You can use the bottom of a measuring cup to press the dough evenly.

Step 8

Tip: Check halfway through to make sure it's baking evenly.

Step 9

5. Remove the tart from the oven and press the base back down using the back of a spoon. Return it to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Step 10

Tip: This step ensures that the crust bakes evenly and is compact.

Step 11

6. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Step 12

Tip: Allowing the base to cool will make it easier to add the filling without it melting.

Step 13

7. While the base is cooling, whip the cold whipping cream, powdered sugar, and mascarpone in a bowl until thick and fluffy.

Step 14

Tip: Make sure all your ingredients are cold to achieve the perfect consistency.

Step 15
