  • 2 1/2 cups Refined Flour
  • 1 cup Prune Puree
  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
  • as required Apricot jam
  • 1 1/2 cups Prune puree
  • 8-10 Prunes whole or halved
  • 8 tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 cup Castor sugar (caster sugar)
  • 1/3 cup Almonds
  • 2 Plums quartered

  1. Sieve refined flour into a bowl. Rub in butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in powdered sugar. Make a well in the flour and add sufficient cold water to knead into a stiff dough. Keep it covered for fifteen minutes.

  3. Press the edges and cut off the extra dough. Prick the base with a fork and place a greaseproof paper over it, place some beans over the butter paper, and blind bake at 175º C for ten to fifteen minutes.
  4. Remove and apply apricot jam with a brush. Heat butter in a pan for the filling. Add sugar and heat till it dissolves. Add prune puree and stir in two tablespoons of water. Mix in almonds.
  5. Cook for a minute more. Pour into prepared tart and level the surface.
  6. Bake at 175º C for ten minutes. Garnish with whole or halved prunes and quartered plums. Brush with apricot jam to give a glaze.
