Almond Tart made in your very own home
This Almond Tart has always been a favourite in my family. It can be served with a dusting of icing sugar or prepared with fresh fruit or a coulis.
This tart with its light fluffy texture is the perfect finish to any meal. Its also super easy to prepare and is almost a case of 'throwing' the ingredients together and then gently folding the egg whites in and away you go.
A fun activity to enjoy with kids as a weekend activity and during school holidays.
This tart is particularly good for today's growing awareness of food allergies as it doesn't use wheat flour and therefore makes it perfect for those who are wheat-intolerant or need to adhere to a Gluten free diet.
So why not try this easy and delicious Almond tart this weekend!
4 Eggs lb (125ml) Castor Sugar
lb (250ml) Ground Almonds tsp Almond Essence
In a large bowl - I like to use glass - beat egg yolks with sugar.
Add ground almonds and almond essence to the eggs and gently mix.
Lastly fold in beaten egg whites carefully.
Bake in pyrex or corning-ware pie dish.
Bake for 180 degrees C for about an hour until the cake is golden in colour and springs back when touched.
Enjoy on its own with a dusting of icing sugar or with fresh fruit or coulis.
