Fruit tart

This is a basic recipe for a fruit tart and you can use any fruit that is in season. On this one I layered plums, cherries and peaches but it will be equally nice with apple or red currants for example. For a baking tray like this you have to double the quantities in the recipe.


100ml vegetable oil
125g sugar
2-3 eggs
200g flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 lemon (juice and zest)
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 175-195°C. Mix the oil and sugar, add the eggs, salt, lemon juice and zest. Mix the baking powder and the flour and sift, gently adding to the mixture. Pour on to a baking tray and add slices of fresh or canned fruit. Sprinkle with some sugar and almond flakes and bake for about 30 minutes.
