Plum tart image

There are the most delicious late harvest plums in the shops at the moment. They are bursting with flavour and natural sweetness and quite beautiful to look at. I generally just give the kids fruit or yoghurt for dessert but decided I change these into something yummy for the kids to enjoy this evening – a Plum tart. They loved them so I hope your children will too!

I love creating desserts that are free from additives, preservatives and refined sugar especially ones that help them get their 5 a day. So if your kiddies aren’t fruit fans I definitely recommend giving this Plum tart a go.


Plum Tart

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35-40 minutes

This is a great refined sugar -free dessert, quite delicious with natural yoghurt or ice cream. I have served this to both children and adults and it has been a real hit! So quick and easy it’s really a bit of a cheat’s dessert, you can whip it up and have it cooking while you eat your main course. It also works will with figs, apples, pears or other stoned fruits too.

Plums are juicy and can be eaten fresh, made into jam or used in baking. Dried plums are known as prunes, and are usually sweet and juicy and contain several antioxidants. Plums or prunes are a great lunch box item. Both plums and prunes are known for having a laxitive effect.For more ideas on what to do with plums, see Things to do with plums, and how to make plum jam.
