Cherry and Almond Tart

Cherry and Almond Tart

1 x 20cm (8 inch) flan dish lined with uncooked shortcrust pastry

1 punnet cherries, stoned

100g (3½ oz) soft butter

100g (3½ oz) caster sugar

1 large free range egg

Few drops almond extract

100g (3½ oz) ground almonds

25g (1 oz) flaked almonds

Cherries and almonds are great friends and this neat tart works equally well served cold at a picnic with cream or warm with ice-cream after dinner. Cooking on the floor of the oven means there’s no need to bake blind, making this pudding a snitch.

Serves 6


Method
Arrange the cherries over the base of the flan. Cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg, almond extract and ground almonds. Spread the almond mixture evenly over the cherries and sprinkle with the flaked almonds.

Place the flan dish on the floor of the roasting oven. Slide the cold plain shelf on the second or third runners down and bake for about 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve warm or cold with cream, crème fraîche or ice cream.
