Ingredients

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

cinnamon

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

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven 150 degrees centigrade. Cream butter and sugar together.
  • STEP 2
    Add egg and mix. Add the flour mixing as you go.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 5
    Place dabs of butter across the top and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the tart.
  • STEP 6
    Place in oven for 25-30 mins until golden brown and the plums are wrinkled in texture.
  • STEP 7
    Best eaten hot with ice cream, although delicious cold.
