  • 8oz self raising flour
  • 4oz butter
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5-2 punnets of plums


  • knobs of butter


  1. Preheat the oven 150 degrees centigrade. Cream butter and sugar together.

  2. Add egg and mix. Add the flour mixing as you go.

  3. Once mixed together place the pastry in a lined baking tray (23.5 x 30cm (9¼” x 12”)). The mixture may seem crumbly, this is ok, compact the mixture by pushing it into the tray- it should all merge together.

  4. Cut the plums into half and place the halves in rows along the pastry. Leave about 5mm of pastry showing between each half. Press gently into the mix.

  5. Place dabs of butter across the top and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the tart.

  6. Place in oven for 25-30 mins until golden brown and the plums are wrinkled in texture.

  7. Best eaten hot with ice cream, although delicious cold.
