  • DifficultyMedium
250g plain flour
110g finely chopped walnuts
150g light brown soft sugar
170g cold unsalted butter, diced
1 egg yolk
900g ripe plums, pitted and quartered lengthways
1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.

2) Combine the flour, walnuts and sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and the egg yolk. Mix, either by hand or with an electric mixer, until crumbly.

3) Press 180g of the crumb mixture in an even layer into the bottom of a 24cm springform or tart pan. Arrange the plums in the pan, skin-side down, to form a flower pattern; begin at the outside and work your way in.

4) Sprinkle the rest of the crumb mixture evenly over the plums.

5) Bake the tart for 40 to 50 minutes, or until lightly browned and the plum juices are bubbling. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes.

6) Remove from the pan and transfer the tart to a flat plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
