Plum frangipane tart

Everyone needs an easy, impressive and drop-dead-delicious pastry recipe up their sleeve. Mine is the incredibly versatile frangipane tart which gets a different flavour added every time I make it. I’ve made it with nectarines and with raspberries and I fall in love with it more and more every time I make it.

I made this stunning tart for the NoMU Recipe Mailer for June using their stunning products. This tart really is the epitome of a chic dessert or tea-time treat and is much simpler than you might think.
