Put delicious in season blood plums to good work with this delectable tart recipe. With a gooey salted caramel filling, this dessert will be devoured.

Plum and Salted Caramel Tart

Serves 12

 

1kg fresh blood plums, cut into wedges

⅓ cup caster sugar

2 tbsp water

Pastry

1 cup plain flour

¼ cup icing sugar

100g chilled butter, chopped

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp iced water

Salted Caramel

395g can condensed milk

50g butter

1 tbsp treacle

1 tsp sea salt flakes

 

Preheat oven to 200°C.

To make pastry, place flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor. Process until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add egg yolk and water, process until dough just comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Shape into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.

Roll pastry out to a 3mm-thick disc. Line a 23cm-round fluted tart pan (with removable base) with pastry. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.

Blind bake for 10 minutes. Remove paper and weights and bake for a further 10 minutes or until lightly golden.

To make salted caramel filling, combine condensed milk, butter, treacle and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5-7 minutes or until caramel is golden. Remove from heat and pour into the tart shell. Set aside to cool.

Arrange plums over caramel. Combine sugar and water in a small frying pan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat, bring to the boil.

Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat and drizzle evenly over plums. Cut into wedges to serve.

    Sounds great but assume something should be done first with the plums water and sugar, it doesn’t say in the recipe???

      Hi Shirley,

      You simply create a caramel as per the instructions and pour it over the fresh cut plums that are placed in the pan.
