Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. The fruit will give off quite a lot of juice. This is normal, but will make the tart quite fragile, so do be careful handling it while still hot.

Leave to cool before removing the tart ring.

Stage 10 - 3 min.

If possible, glaze the top of the tart once it has cooled.

Stage 11

Eat cold on its own, or with a generous dollop of whipped cream.
Remarks
For a simpler version, you can use just one variety of plum, but it won't have the impact of combining the different sorts.

If you don't have hazelnut buttercream, opt for almond cream (frangipane) instead.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
