Lovely for afternoon tea with a cuppa .

Ingredients (makes 1 tart)

  • 500 Grams Plain flour
  • 250 grams Butter
  • 200grams Sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups jam ( any flavor )


  1. Grease a 30 cm flan tin well with butter or cooking spray. Set oven to 180 degrees
  2. Mix flour and sugar in a bowl, Work in butter with clean dry hands
  3. Add eggs and ,again, mix in with hands. At this stage the eggs don't need to be mixed in 100 %. When a thick dough has been reached you are ready to use.
  4. Break off a small handful of dough to be used for decoration, Place the rest on the prepared tray and push all over the base and sides evenly.
  5. Spread the jam over the base .
  6. Break off pieces of the reserved dough and roll out into thin sausage shapes. Place them on top of the jam to form a lattice effect
  7. Bake for approx 30-40 minutes or until pastry is light golden


This pastry is the same i've used in my "festive fruit flan" recipe. Its a good way to use any left over pastry. I don't always do the lattice, sometimes i cut shapes out of the pastry and put those on top of the jam. Any flavor jam can be used, but i love any berry jam on this .

  • These look super easy. Will be giving them a go (perhaps with a little less sugar though!)


  • This looks better than the ones you get in the supermarket!


  • Even more easy when you simply use puff pastry.

    • Yes so much easier….but a totally different recipe …. chalk and cheese


  • Love this recipe and it’s so simple.


  • That’s a LOT of sugar. Sounds a bit too sweet for me.


  • Saw this or similar on MasterChef the other day – wouldn’t be something I would make as too sweet for a diabetic, but it looked good. Thanks for sharing.


  • I will pass, too much butter and sugar.


  • Oh this looks dreamily delish!


  • This looks awesome and something I’d love to make as a morning or afternoon tea treat.


  • I would make this without sugar in the dough.


  • I does look good. A quick, simple, no fuss recipe.


  • An easy way to use the jams that no body is eating any more. The ones sitting in the pantry from the excess berries.


  • What a lovely desert I can’t believe how quick and simple it is


  • Lovely, simple, creative and beautiful to share.


  • I love that it’s so versitile and it looks so very appealing thanks!
