I made this beauty on a larger scale for my mum a few months back and it was a little bit of a train wreck. I cut the fig slices too thin so they turned to mush when I tried to fry them, the baked custard didn't set, the almond meal base went soggy on the bottom and burnt on the top…. god bless mum for still hoeing into it like a trooper (it really did look like a dogs’ breakfast) but with a few little adjustments and a couple more trial runs, I've done it…. the perfect autumn tart!
