sweet and spicy souvenir - blackberry frangipane tart

Today's sweet and spicy souvenir is a little storage jar from Habitat in London. Habitat went into receivership when I was in London so I made a pilgrimage to the Tottenham Court Road shop just in case it isn't around next time I come to London.

As I warned you, I've been on a bit of a pastry kick of late. Don't know why. Here's a blackberry tart I made for work a few weeks ago. I felt a bit guilty not sharing the mulberry tart with my workmates and as I had some leftover pastry, I remade the recipe substituting blackberries for mulberries. This recipe by Tana Ramsay is close to the one I used.

I love making frangipane tarts because they're so easy and every-one loves them. If you don't feel like it, you can skip the pre-baking of the pastry case and the tart will still turn out fine.

The tart was all gone before I could snaffle a slice but that's always a good sign.

I hope you all had good weekends. Apart from a trip to the movies to see Midnight in Paris, my weekend was quiet. As I've got a hectic few days coming up, I like to think of it as the calm before the storm.

See you all again on Wednesday,



  1. I also love frangipane tarts, somehow the texture and taste feel so comforting. (asides delicious). I also recently saw Midnight in Paris!.

  2. Hi Heidi,

    Midnight in Paris was a sweet movie. Some of my friends who'd recently visited Paris recommended the movie to me. It was a nice reminder of the time I spent in Paris this year and the many tarts I consumed there,


  3. Do you have a recipe for this? It looks amazing!

  4. This recipe

    is pretty close to the one I used. I put about 1/2 cup of blackberry jam over the base of the tart shell before gently covering it with the frangipane filling, then topping it with fresh blackberries.

    Hope that helps,


  5. Your pics are so beautiful Jillian…thanks for a great post...
