Plum and Apple Tart


5 people made this

This fruit tart is a great way to use plums that are not quite ripe. It's an easy recipe using premade shortcrust pastry.


Makes: 1 tart

  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • 1 cup (250g) honey
  • 500g plums, pitted and quartered
  • 2 large tart apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • 1 readymade frozen shortcrust pastry sheet
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, for sprinkling

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C and grease and flour a tart tin.
  2. In a saucepan combine the water and honey and mix over low heat until honey has dissolved. Bring to a simmer and add the plums. Simmer about 5-10 minutes until plums are slightly softened but still firm. Drain and let cool, discarding the honey mixture.
  3. In a saucepan combine the diced apples and 1 cup water. Simmer 10 minutes or until apples are soft. Blend to a rough puree, or use a stick blender.
  4. Roll out the pastry until it is just larger than the tart tin. Place inside the tin, trim the edges and prick the bottom all over with a fork.
  5. Pour in enough of the blended apples to cover the base. Top with the plum quarters in a circular pattern, skins downwards. Sprinkle with the brown sugar.
  6. Bake 20-30 minutes, until pastry is light golden.
