INGREDIENTS PER 8 PEOPLE
For the cake:
pastry flour, 2 cup
butter, 3,5 oz
sugar, 3 tsbp
vanilla extract, 1 tsp
a pinch of salt
cold water if needed
For the topping:
jam, 4 tbsp
water, 2 tbsp
mixed fruit of your choice
Knead together flour, sugar, the egg, vanilla extract and saltusing a fork.
Add diced butter and with your hands knead quickly to make a smooth ball. If it’s sticky, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes wrapped up in some cling film.
Lay the dough on a round baking tray and flatten it.
Using a fork, prick it over the base, to avoid air bubbles (alternatively cover it with beans), bake it at 360°F for 15-18 minutes until slightly golden.
Wash and slice the fruit finely. Put 1 tbsp of jam over the tart, lay the fruit over it mixing the colours.
Stir the remaining jam in a sauce pan, with 2 tbsp of water till it feels runny, brush the tart with it. This will give it an attractive and glossy colour. You could use gelatine for cakes if you prefer.
