Brown Butter Raspberry Tart

Last Tuesday I was cooking with my friend Lesley for her book club dinner. She decided to serve roasted veggie rice bake for the main dish and I suggested brown butter raspberry tart for dessert. This tart was one of the first recipes I ever blogged about almost three years ago. It is one of my family’s absolute favorite desserts, but unfortunately, the recipe got lost for all of you my readers during my blog move. This delectable cake has a perfect mixture of tart raspberries, and a sweet, crunchy, buttery short bread crust. The brown butter adds a nutty flavor to the berry filling.

As soon as my teens overheard that brown butter raspberry tart was being baked they wanted a tart as well. I promised them their own brown butter raspberry tart for the weekend. The pictures you see is of the cake my family enjoyed.

This brown butter raspberry tart would be an outstanding treat to bring to any Memorial day weekend get together. It is simple to make (no mixer necessary), keeps and travels well and will be gone in a flash since everyone just loves it!

Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 10
  • Crust:
  • 7 tablespoons (100g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup (70 g) sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon (125 g) all purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Filling:
  • ½ cup (100 g) sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup (30 g) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (1 stick, 113 g) unsalted butter, diced
  • 12 ounces (340 g) fresh raspberries
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  2. Butter a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom. A spring form would work just fine, too.
  3. Place the butter for the filling in a smaller light sauce pan and heat on low to medium until the butter is melted to a golden brown. Be careful, the butter could turn black very quickly. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl using a spatula or even just a fork mix together all the ingredients for the crust.
  5. Press the crust dough evenly into the pan bottom and up the sides.
  6. Bake the crust for 18 minutes or until golden brown. *Check notes. Remove from the oven.
  7. In the meantime prepare the filling. Place all the filling ingredients, including the browned butter, into a bowl and mix well.
  8. Place the raspberries with open sides on the bottom evenly onto the crust.
  9. Pour the filling over the raspberries.
  10. Bake tart for about 40 minutes or until done and golden brown. **Check notes.
*While baking the crust the sides tend to slide down a little. I take it out after 10 minutes of baking time to press the crust up the sides again. **Cover the tart loosely (don't touch filling!) with aluminum foil after 20 minutes of the baking time. This will prevent too much darkening.

This tart is positively beautiful looking. I love the simplicity of ingredients – the fresh raspberry flavor must really shine through.

What do they say about great minds….I did a brown butter banana bread yesterday! This raspberry tart is just scrumptious looking and a must to bake for dessert this summer when the berries are in the Farmer’s Market. XOXO
