A Fruity Autumn Tart

Not one my strong points pastry but after having a fab meal at the Gilbert Scott restaurant last week I thought I'd have a go at the pudding I had there.

I used Nigel Slater's recipe (though I added a little vanilla in the frangipan mix).

Even if I say so myself it came out looking rather good!

Hope Liz is not late tonight otherwise it might all be gone!


  1. Hi Alan - This looks AMAZING.

    I popped into to say Happy Holidays and boogie boogie. Hope you and Liz are well. Tim and I are doing okay. Lots of bakes. Learning how to do Paul Hollywood's eight strand plaited loaf. Great fun.

    What are you working on?

  2. PS: Did you get your Holiday issues of BBC GoodFood magazine? I did but haven't posted about it yet. Costs me ten bucks a month to get here, but worth every penny.
