Plum frangipane tart




6 plums

200g soft sugar

250g butter

150g ground almonds

100g plain flour

4 eggs

1tsp almond essence

50g flaked almonds

Serving of whipped cream


1. Halve and de-stone the plums

2. Using a large ovenproof frying pan, use the sugar and a small amount of water to make a caramel

3. In a food processor blend the soft butter and sugar until creamed and then break and add the eggs one at a time

4. Remove from the processor and fold in the almonds and flour to complete your frangipane mix

5. When the caramel is ready, add your flaked almonds to the bottom of the pan and the halved plums face down

6. Pour over the frangipane mix and bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 180 degrees or until golden so that when you pierce it with a knife it comes out clean

7. Leave to stand for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a plate

8. Cut and serve with whipped cream! Yum!
