Celebrate summer with this gorgeous nectarine and almond tart. With a shell of crispy vanilla pastry, a layer of homemade almond paste and a topping of beautifully arranged nectarines, this tart looks and tastes like a ray of sunshine.
This muffin recipe is a one-bowl wonder, easy to throw together and the cardamom is a beautiful whisper of flavour alongside the fruit. And who doesn’t like a freshly baked muffin first thing in the morning? My mum’s muffins are the best – though I might be a bit biased!
At first glance this looks like a classic fruit tart to be eaten by the slice. However, with this tart you have to deconstruct it in order to eat it. The nutty walnut shell is not only intended to hold the sweet globes of roasted fruit together; it’s meant to be smashed up, crumbled and piled. Slap on a dollop of clotted cream or tart crème fraîche and dig in.
Super-easy to prepare, these little almondy cakes can pretty much handle any seasonal fruit so feel free to be creative with what you have on hand. Recipes and styling by Fiona Hugues. Photography by Jani Shepherd. Gatherum Collectif.
