Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 20 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Line an 8-inch (20 cm) tart ring, following the guidance here.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Rinse, drain and dry 1 kg 500 g mirabelle plums.

Cut in half, remove and discard the stones.

Drizzle the juice of 2 lemon over.

Stage 3 - 10 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Rinse, drain and dry 1 kg 50 g plums.

Cut in half and discard the stones.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

Spread 600 g Rich hazelnut buttercream in a thin layer in the bottom of the pastry case.

Stage 5 - 7 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Arrange the mirabelle halves in a circle around the edge, facing one way.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Stage 8 - 3 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
Finish with a few more plums in the centre.

Stage 9 - 50 min.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
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.
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
If possible, glaze the top of the tart once it has cooled.

Stage 11
Plum tart "En passant par la Lorraine"
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.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
