sweet and spicy souvenir - blackberry frangipane tart

Today's sweet and spicy souvenir is a little storage jar from Habitat in London. Habitat went into receivership when I was in London so I made a pilgrimage to the Tottenham Court Road shop just in case it isn't around next time I come to London.

As I warned you, I've been on a bit of a pastry kick of late. Don't know why. Here's a blackberry tart I made for work a few weeks ago. I felt a bit guilty not sharing the mulberry tart with my workmates and as I had some leftover pastry, I remade the recipe substituting blackberries for mulberries. This recipe by Tana Ramsay is close to the one I used.

I love making frangipane tarts because they're so easy and every-one loves them. If you don't feel like it, you can skip the pre-baking of the pastry case and the tart will still turn out fine.



The tart was all gone before I could snaffle a slice but that's always a good sign.

I hope you all had good weekends. Apart from a trip to the movies to see Midnight in Paris, my weekend was quiet. As I've got a hectic few days coming up, I like to think of it as the calm before the storm.

See you all again on Wednesday,

  2. Hi Heidi,

    Midnight in Paris was a sweet movie. Some of my friends who'd recently visited Paris recommended the movie to me. It was a nice reminder of the time I spent in Paris this year and the many tarts I consumed there,

  4. This recipe

    is pretty close to the one I used. I put about 1/2 cup of blackberry jam over the base of the tart shell before gently covering it with the frangipane filling, then topping it with fresh blackberries.

    Hope that helps,
