Plum Tart Tartan.

Saturday 5th March 2011

I made this during my cookathon weekend a few weeks ago.
We had an old plum that needed to be eaten and some left over puff pastry. Also a few years ago I bought a little stainless steel frying pan to make omeletts. It’s the perfect size for a one-person-dessert & it has a steel handle so you can put it in the oven. All this together meant I had to give it a go.
I’ve never made one before but have seen them being made a thousand times on various cooking programs.

Soften the plum in some brown sugar, water & lemon juice. After it is soft, place the plum into the oven proof pan with a little of the syrupy liquid. Cut the puff pastry to the size of the pan and put on top of the plums. Brush with milk.
I put mine in the oven for about 15 minutes until the pastry had risen and gone brown.
Turn the whole thing out onto a plate and dust with icing sugar.

MS’s verdict;
“Good…cool…I ready liked it actually.”

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
